Joel Armia had two goals and an assist, Carey Price made 26 saves, and the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Winnipeg Jets 5-1 on Sunday night to take a 3-0 lead in their second-round playoff series.
Corey Perry, Artturi Lehkonen and Nick Suzuki also scored for the Canadiens, who have won six straight playoff games and haven¨t trailed in a game since losing Game 4 against Toronto in the first round. Montreal will try to complete a four-game sweep of Winnipeg on Monday night at home.
Armia, Perry and Eric Staal are listed as the Canadiens¨ fourth line, but the trio is a big reason why Montreal is one win from advancing to the third round.
＾They¨re definitely not a fourth line,￣ Montreal forward Brendan Gallagher said. ＾They¨re playing big-boy hockey. They¨ve been able to put together such long cycle shifts. They know what they are as a line and they just play to their strengths. Playoff hockey has certainly brought the best out of the three of them.￣
The Canadiens lead a playoff series 3-0 for the first time since 2015, when they beat Ottawa in the opening round.
＾We know the feeling of having your back against the wall,￣ Suzuki said. ＾We know they¨re going to be coming out with a lot of intensity.￣
Adam Lowry scored for the Jets, and Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves. Winnipeg was without top center Mark Scheifele, who is serving a four-game suspension for a charging penalty in the series opener. The Jets got Paul Stastny back after he missed the first two games with an undisclosed injury.
＾You¨ve got to keep believing,￣ Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. ＾There¨s some things in our game that we really like, some things we can clean up certainly, and hopefully we get a bounce to go our way. Hopefully one goes off of one of their sticks and ricochets into the net and we¨ll take a lead and see how it looks from there.￣
Montreal welcomed another 2,500 fans Sunday night after hosting the first NHL crowd in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic for Game 6 against Toronto.
＾It¨s only 2,500,￣ Gallagher said. ＾But they¨re a loud 2,500. They give us a lot of energy.￣
The Canadiens opened the scoring at 4:45 of the first period on a grinding shift by the fourth line of Perry, Armia and Staal. Caught in the middle of a change following a turnover, the Jets were hemmed into their own end for 30 seconds before Perry¨s shot ！ the Canadiens¨ third chance of the sequence ！ went off Winnipeg defenseman Jordie Benn¨s stick and past Hellebuyck.
Lehkonen made it 2-0 at 9:24 of the second on a scramble after Phillip Danault hit the post.
The Jets went to the power play when the Canadiens were whistled for too many men, but Armia intercepted Stastny¨s pass and broke the other way on a 2-on-1 before delaying around a sliding Josh Morrissey to make it 3-0 at 13:41 of the second. It was Montreal¨s third short-handed goal of the playoffs.
Lowry broke Price¨s shutout streak at 99 minutes, 33 seconds with 2:09 left in the period when he took a pass from Mathieu Perreault and fired blocker side for his second.
Suzuki made it 4-1 on a power play at 8:52 of the third, and Armia added his second of the night into an empty net with Hellebuyck on the bench for an extra attacker and Montreal killing another penalty with 3:18 remaining.
