ST. PAUL, Minn. - Zach Parise was in the starting lineup for the Minnesota Wild against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Parise blocked a shot with his left foot in a loss to St. Louis on Monday and was expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks with a contusion.

Avs forward Paul Stastny was scratched for the second straight game with back spasms.
