    Canadiens' Joel Armia: Buries pair of goals

    Joel Armia scored twice in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.Armia began the game on the fourth line, and he netted the opening tally at 13:45 of the first period. Less than four minutes later, he scored again while filling in for Josh Anderson (undisclosed) on the second line. Armia hadn't posted a point in six games since returning from a concussion, so this was a much-needed return to the scoresheet -- and against his former team, to boot. The 27-year-old has four goals, seven points and a plus-10 rating in 12 contests this year, but he's only gotten on the scoresheet in three games.

    Canadiens' Joel Armia: Kept quiet in return

    Joel Armia (concussion) skated 15:25 in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.Armia's only statistical contribution was a takeaway, although he did resume a penalty-killing role. The Finn has five points, a plus-6 rating, seven hits and seven shots on goal through six appearances. He may still need some time to get back into form, and Armia shouldn't be expected to play higher than the third line barring injuries to the Montreal Canadiens' top six. Paul Byron was a healthy scratch to accommodate Armia's return to the lineup after a seven-game absence.
