Aaron Musick: Stastny steps up in third

During the three game losing streak, no one took more heat than Paul Stastny. The heat grew to an inferno during after the second period when Stastny was minus-3 as the Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames went into the final intermission tied 3-3.

Eklund: Morning Buzz: Does O'Reilly Have Leverage?

The official word on restricted free agent Ryan O'Reilly's negotiations with the Colorado Avalanche is that the two sides remain at an impasse. However, my feeling from day one in his situation has been that an offer sheet from another team would be the only way he could fetch nearly the contractual price tag he and agent Mark Guy have set.
