Paul Stastny was a dismal minus-3 in the Blues' 4-1 loss to the Habs on Thursday night.
The 28-year-old free agent signing has just one point in his previous nine games, a sharp decline from the four points he scored in the season's first two games. Stastny should find more success in the coming weeks on the high-powered Blues offense, but is clearly not on track to meet the expectations the Blues and fantasy owners hoped for. Nov 20 - 10:25 PM

Paul Stastny was rusty in his return on Thursday.

Stastny had no shots on goal and a minus-two rating in 15:37 minutes of ice time. "Behind, not up to pace yet, but that's to be expected," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said of Stastny. "He'll get better as he moves on. I thought as the game went on and on, he was better but he was behind the pace. The thing with 'Stas' is he hasn't even practiced. He's skated and worked and clawed and really battled. But we haven't had any hockey practices. This was the first full 5 on 5 activity he's done. It's going to be good for him to have a hockey practice." Stastny took part in a full team practice on Friday, so that should help him as he works to bounce back from a shoulder injury.

He has four points on the year and should have 25 goals and a point-per-game by season’s end. Goal scorers for the Blues included Joakim Lindstrom, David Backes and Alex Pietrangelo. Kevin Shattenkirk also finished with three helpers.
