Paul Stastny C STL 8 Days

Stastny notched a power-play goal in Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Islanders.

Stastny seems to have settled into a nice groove in December after a tepid start to the season, as he's netted four goals over his last three games. If he can maintain close to a point-per-game pace the rest of the way, the Blues will have as fearsome of an offensive attack as any in the league.

Stastny scored a power-play goal Thursday in a win over the Islanders. He was plus-1 and took one shot.

Stastny has come alive of late, with a couple fortunate bounces going his way. He's now up to 11 points, 14 PIM, 43 SOG and a minus-2 rating in 20 games this year, and with six points in the last eight games, it appears Stastny may finally be adjusting to life in the Show Me State.

Stastny potted two goals -- including the game-winner -- in Saturday's 6-4 defeat of the Islanders.

Despite enjoying his most productive game of the season, Stastny has still been a massive letdown since joining the Blues in the offseason. He's notched just five goals and 10 points in 19 games and has seen his average ice time drop a full two minutes for a season ago with the Avs.

Stastny found the net for the third time this season in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Jets.

Stastny's empty-netter in the game's final minute was largely inconsequential, but at least gave the center an opportunity to give something back to fantasy owners after providing precious little to date. Though Stastny was the Blues' most high-profile offseason acquisition at center, discount pickup Jori Lehtera has been the far better performer for the Blues, making minutes a little scarcer than anticipated for Stastny. The 28-year-old is averaging two and a half minutes fewer ice time with the Blues than he enjoyed with the Avs a season ago, producing six points and a minus-5 rating over 13 games.

Stastny potted the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Predators.

The goal came on Stastny's lone shot of the game and marked his first point since returning from injured reserve three games earlier. The struggling Stastny saw just 11:57 of action with the Blues having all their forwards at full health, but look for his ice time to rise once he becomes further removed from the upper-body injury.

Stastny was held without a point in 18:17 of ice time Tuesday in a 6-1 win over Buffalo. He failed to register a shot and only won 38% of his face offs in the contest.

Stastny has now gone three straight games without a point since his return from an upper body injury. While he is back up to a regular shift he is clearly not up to speed. Patience will be required with the Blues' center as he works his way back following a two week absence.
