Paul Stastny contributed to both Blues goals in their 2-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.
Stastny assisted on Dmitrij Jaskin’s first-period goal and scored his own in the third period. His first season in St. Louis has not exactly gone as planned, with 12 goals and 36 points this season. The goal was his first since Feb. 12, a span of six without one. Patrik Berglund and Ian Cole got the other helpers. Mar 1 - 12:53 AM

Coach Ken Hitchcock is thinking about moving Paul Stastny to the second line between Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko.

That would place Jori Lehtera with Dmitrij Jaskin and Patrik Berglund. "We're looking at maybe flipping Lehtera and Stastny and see how that looks," Hitchcock said. "We haven't had the chemistry that we expect at times and it may be the time now to see if we can get some new energy and those two lines might work for us."

Paul Stastny scored the only goal for St. Louis as the Blues suffered a 7-1 slaughter at the hands of the Blue Jackets in Columbus Friday night.

The Blues, 34-14-4 this season, were 12-0-1 in its previous 13 games. "It was one of those games tonight," St. Louis forward Alexander Steen said. "Nothing went our way. We didn't play hard enough or smart enough. There's not much to say. We weren't good enough. It's just a bad game." Stastny's goal, scored on a second-period power play, was his 10th of the season.

Paul Stastny has registered 11 points in his past eight games.

That total has nearly matched the 13 points he accounted for during his first 26 contests this campaign. "When I'm out there, I've got more confidence," said Stastny, who has seen his ice time increase lately as well. "You get in the groove of the game. I think early on, maybe you have to get the coach’s trust or (get him) comfortable with different situations. It's a long season, and I knew that from the get-go. You just have to continue proving yourself." Coach Ken Hitchcock said he noticed that the more Stastny plays, the better he plays so the team has been more active at getting him out on the ice.

Paul Stastny notched a goal and a helper in Thursday's 7-2 blowout win against San Jose.

His power-play tally late in the first period held up as the game winner. Stastny has potted the game-winning goal in two straight contests and he's picked up seven points during a four-game scoring streak.
Jan 9 - 11:54 AM

Paul Stastny had two assists in the St. Louis Blues' 3-0 shutout of the visiting Colorado Avalanche Monday night.

They were his first points against his former team since signing with the Blues as a free agent last summer. Stastny produced his eighth and ninth assists of the season on second-period goals by Dmitrij Jaskin, his third of the season, and Chris Butler, his first. Vladimir Tarasenko scored the Blues' third goal in the third period. Tarasenko is having a fabulous season and now has 22 goals.

Paul Stastny was booed in his return to Denver on Saturday night.

Stastny signed with the Blues as a free agent last summer, and Avs fans didn't take too kindly to him leaving. Stastny was booed every time he touched the puck. The 28-year-old has just seven goals and 12 points this season, but he has managed to score five points in his last five games.

Paul Stastny will face his former Avalanche teammates for the first time in Denver since he signed on as a free agent with the Blues this past summer.

It is hard to say what kind of a reaction Stastny will get. We imagine there will be some sort of video tribute during which Avalanche fans will likey cheer Stastny but once the game starts we suspect there will be plenty of boos. If you think players respond well in this sort of situation, then make sure you have Stastny active Saturday night.

Paul Stastny skated with David Backes and T.J. Oshie at Wednesday's practice.

Stastny has a goal and an assist in his past two games after a four-game pointless skid. Oshie has struggled mightily this season and Backes hasn't been lighting it up either. It may be wishful thinking to hope that they will rediscover their respective games together, but they all have the talent to turn things around so it's possible.

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.

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.

Paul Stastny (shoulder) will be back in the lineup for St. Louis on Thursday night.

He's expected to play between Alexander Steen and Joakim Lindstrom against New Jersey. Stastny has missed the past eight games with a shoulder ailment. He had one goal and three assists in four matches before the injury, so get him back on your active roster immediately.

Paul Stastny (shoulder) is getting very close to returning.

Stastny took part in Tuesday's optional practice after participating in his first contact drills on Monday. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock hasn't publicly to pencil Stastny in for a specific game, but he did say that his timeline can be measured in days at this point, not weeks.

Paul Stastny (shoulder) took part in contact drills on Monday and he might be back in the lineup later this week.

He isn't expected to be ready on Tuesday, though. "We put him on the ice for final evaluation," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "If the evaluation is proper after a full session of contact, we would evaluate him to play in the next three or four games. Today first 100 percent green light from hitting standpoint." Stastny hasn't played since Oct. 18.

Paul Stastny skated Sunday morning and will travel with his Blues' teammates when they embark on a two-game road trip slated to start Monday in New York.

It is not known if Stastny will be ready to play Monday in the Big Apple. More than likely, he will miss that game as he still has to participate in a full contact practice. The good news is that barring a setback, Stastny's return from a shoulder injury will likely come sometime this week.
