Joel Armia helped spark Winnipeg's penalty kill on Tuesday night.
He scored his third shorthanded goal of the year in the contest. The Jets also killed off all four of the Devils' power plays in a 4-3 shootout win. "I've been trying to improve my PK a lot," said Armia. "When you play good defence, maybe you get the (scoring) chances sometimes. But it's not about scoring goals. It's about shutting their power play down." Unfortunately, that hasn't happened often as Winnipeg ranks 28th overall in the league on penalty kill this season. Mar 30 - 11:20 AM

Joel Armia scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Armia did all of his damage in the middle period, as he helped set up Bryan Little's goal to cut the deficit to 3-1 and he really made things interesting when he scored to make it 3-2. Unfortunately for the Jets, that's as close as they would come to tying the game. Armia has four goals and five assists in 31 games this season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy format.
