Despite finishing the game with only 10 forwards, the Colorado Avalanche were able to edge out the Winnipeg Jets in overtime Monday, with Matt Duchene putting his own rebound past goaltender Al Montoya in the extra frame.

Unfortunately, they did not make it through the contest unscathed.

After losing center Paul Stastny to a back injury on the first shift of Saturday’s game; the Avalanche were dealt another blow early in Monday’s contest, losing P.A. Parenteau to a knee injury on the second shift.

While Stastny is listed as day-to-day, Parenteau’s situation seems more serious. Avalanche coach Patrick Roy speculated after the game that the 30-year-old winger could miss 4-6 weeks, potentially putting an end to his regular season and putting a cloud around his availability for the playoffs.

“It sucks,” said Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog. “Certainly tough to see him go down, same as Stastny. Two great players. We just have to make sure we do what we can with what we have.”

In response to the injuries, the Avalanche recalled forwards Paul Carey and Brad Malone from the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL.
