Armia scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Vegas. He added one hit and one block while finishing minus-1 over 17:48 of ice time.

A goal that was originally credited to defenseman Brett Kulak was changed to Armia, who finished off a hopeful Montreal start, scoring the home team's third goal of the first period and giving the Habs a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes. It was Armia's 13th goal in 37 games, matching the career high he set last season in 57 games. The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Armia appears to be fulfilling the potential the Sabres saw in the Finn when making him a first-round selection in 2011. He's averaging a career high in overall ice time (17:03) and power-play minutes (2:06) while using that big frame (96 hits, team-high 2.6 per game) to dominate opponents.
