DENVER -- Avalanche center Ryan Stoa joined teammate Milan Hejduk on the sideline after sustaining a lower-body injury during the second period of Game 3 in Colorado's 1-0 overtime victory over San Jose on Sunday night.

Hejduk left 2:06 into the contest after sustaining an upper-body injury.

Hejduk, who had one goal for the Avalanche in the first two playoff games, was injured after colliding with teammate Paul Stastny while the two skated into the Sharks' zone. It wasn't immediately clear how Stoa was injured.
