Paul Stastny scored the lone goal for the Blues in a 5-1 blowout loss in Los Angeles on Thursday.
That's three goals in his last three games for the veteran center who has recorded five points in his last four games. The 31-year-old is not a big point producer anymore at this stage in his career and is on pace for an effort similar to his last two campaigns around the 40-50 point mark. Jan 13 - 2:42 AM

Paul Stastny scored two goals and earned one assist Saturday night as the St Louis Blues beat the Dallas Stars 4-3.

Stastny got the Blues on the board for the first time in the game at the 9:27 minute mark of the first and his assist came later that same period when Vladimir Tarasenko found the back of the net at 16:43. His final point of the night came on a goal at 7:51 in the second. This lifts Stastny to 22 points. Alex Steen earned one assist during the game to claim his 22nd point as well, and the two are now tied for fourth on the team leaderboard.

Paul Stastny wasn't pleased with his team's effort in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Blues may have been caught looking ahead to next Monday's Winter Classic at Busch Stadium, but they weren't ready to play on Friday. "I think we seemed to mentally disappear maybe after that first goal or second goal," said Stastny. "It just carried through throughout the whole game. … Just flat. You saw it, we saw it. It’s frustrating. We get down a goal and then we start playing three forwards by ourselves, we try to play two defensemen by themselves."

Paul Stastny has been working in front of the net on the Blues' top power-play unit during the preseason.

Alexander Steen has been taking turns with Stastny. The Blues will have to make adjustments after losing right-handed shots from David Backes and Troy Brouwer. Stastny and Steen both shoot left. "It's going to be different because there aren't going to be those bang-bang plays that we had with the other two guys," said coach Ken Hitchcock. "So there's going to be a different type of goal scoring. Movement is going to be the same, but we're going to have more movement through the crease area than through the slot area." Kevin Shattenkirk, Alex Pietrangelo and Vladimir Tarasenko make up the rest of the combination.

Paul Stastny was shocked by Team USA's disappointing performance at the World Cup of Hockey.

The Americans failed to make the semifinal after going 0-3 in the round robin. "I think it’s, not sad, it’s shocking," said Stastny, who was on the Olympic team in 2010 and ’14. "No one expected that. If they win that first game (against Team Europe), everything is completely different. ... Obviously (Canada), they’re the favorites (in the group), but maybe they were underestimating Europe, or maybe looking ahead. Those are the mistakes teams make. If I’m on that team, I’m probably thinking more about Canada because … you know that’s your big game because you think if you beat them you’re going to win the group. Europe played a smart game, kind of a savvy, played like Sweden almost."

Paul Stastny between Vladimir Tarasenko and Alex Steen could be a line combination for the Blues in 2016-17, according to coach Ken Hitchcock.

Of course nothing is set in stone, especially this early. It might be a trio to keep an eye on once Steen returns from off-season shoulder surgery. Robby Fabbri may be back with Stastny, while Tarasenko could skate alongside Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz as well.

Paul Stastny was one of three St. Louis forwards to produce three points in the Blues' 6-1, series-winning rout of the Stars in Dallas Wednesday night.

Stastny, Robby Fabbri and Troy Brouwer combined for nine points as the Blues took Game 7 with relative ease in the teams' second-round series. For the first time since 2001, the Blues have advanced to the Western Conference Final. They'll face either the San Jose Sharks or the Nashville Predators, who meet each other Thursday night in Game 7 to wrap up Round 2 of the postseason. The Blues made the elimination of the Stars look easy Wednesday by jumping out to a 5-0 lead after two periods. In the first period, Fabbri, Stastny and Patrik Berglund scored. David Backes and Brouwer scored in the second period. Vladimir Tarasenko netted the Blues' sixth goal in the third period. Fabbri and Stastny each have three goals now in the postseason. Backes ended up with two points Wednesday. The Blues have won two Game 7s in the playoffs for the second time. The last time was in 1968, which was their inaugural season.
