Canadiens' Joel Armia: Snaps drought

Armia spun and beat Andrew Hammond over his left shoulder to give the Canadiens a 4-2 lead late in the second period.

Canadiens' Joel Armia: Moved to top line

Armia had three shots on net and three hits while finishing minus-2 over 16:19 of ice time in Thursday's 4-0 loss to Carolina. Montreal interim head coach Martin St. Louis altered the lineup, moving Armia to the top line alongside Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield. The move is seen as a surprise, but the coach is looking for the right combination. Josh Anderson worked with the two young guns early but has since gone cold. Mike Hoffman had a one-game tryout on the top line in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Florida before Thursday's move. Armia did have a streak of five points in five games during a stretch earlier in March, but the 28-year-old forward was back to being unproductive for the three games since, which increased to four straight contests Thursday.

Canadiens' Joel Armia: Scores shortie in loss

Armia had a short-handed goal and three shots on net in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins. Armia intercepted a pass at the blue line and beat Jeremy Swayman on a breakaway. He went backhand-forehand before lifting a shot over the goalie's left shoulder to give Montreal a 2-1 lead early in the third period. It looked like the goal might hold up, as Jake Allen (43 saves) was sterling in net for the Canadiens, but Boston tied it up late and went on to take two points in OT. It was the second straight game with a goal for Armia, who pocketed a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Senators.
