Winnipeg Jets forward Paul Stastny returned to the lineup for Game 3 against the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night.

Stastny missed the first two games of Round 2 with an undisclosed injury. He previously played in all four contests during the Jets' first-round sweep of the Edmonton Oilers.

Despite typically playing center, the 35-year-old slotted in as a left-winger on a line with Andrew Copp and Nikolaj Ehlers. With Mark Scheifele serving his four-game suspension, Pierre-Luc Dubois centered the team's top line in Game 2.

After dropping Sunday's contest 5-1, the Jets now trail the Canadiens 3-0 in the series.
