Stastny has left Saturday's game with a back injury and will not return.
Stastny played just one shift before departing for the dressing room. The Avalanche announced that his return was questionable, but with just five minutes left in the third period, it is safe to say he will not be back. We will likely receive an update following the game or within the next 24 hours.
Stastny (ankle) will return to the Avalanche lineup tonight.
Stastny missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but will be back in the lineup tonight in New York. He has three goals and three assists in his last seven games and has a total of 16 goals and 23 assists in 49 games this season.
We won’t know until closer to game time whether Paul Stastny will be in the lineup for the Avs against the New York Rangers tonight.
The Avalanche did not have a morning skate today at Madison Square Garden, so there were no updates given on either player’s status, just that more would be determined once the team gets to the rink later.
Stastny (leg) "probably will play Saturday in Nashville," Patrick Roy said. "It's still day to day, but the target is Nashville. I could be wrong by one game."
Stastny will miss his second straight game tonight but could be back in the lineup on Saturday. The Avalanche are dealing with a lot of injuries right now, but Stastny is the biggest of them all. Monitor his status as Saturday approaches.
No update on Paul Stastny (leg) today, but I’m hearing he’s OK. Might be questionable for Tuesday’s game, but we’ll know for sure tomorrow at practice.
Stastny was forced to leave the game after playing just 10:21 in Saturday's win over the Wild. Stastny has had a great season to-date and this would be a tough loss for the Avalanche to deal with. Since the calendar switched to 2014, Stastny has two goals and seven assists in six games. Monitor his status on Tuesday.
Paul Stastny is returning to the lineup Wednesday night
Stastny injured his left foot blocking a shot Mar. 24 against Vancouver and the injury has lingered beyond the initial 10-day prognosis. His 19 points in 31 games placed him third on the team in scoring. He missed eight games, the same number Jones had missed after sustaining a knee injury. A longer than expected absence has been especially tough as his club dropped seven of eight games.
