The Canadian will have to do without Joel Army services for a while. The post-hitting confirmation Finn received from Tyler Myers was unquestionable: the Army was suffering from a concussion.

Claude Julian made the announcement moments after his team won 7-3 in Vancouver. Apparently, he did not hesitate to deny the gesture of the Canucks defenseman.
“It seemed more like a shoulder kick. Armia never saw it coming. 2 minutes 28 seconds from the end of the match, with a score of 6 to 3, is this really necessary? This is definitely the kind of check we are trying to eliminate in the NHL, ”the Canadians coach insisted.
“The referees responded well by giving him a big penalty. We have to see what the league does,” he said.
Apparently, the 6ft, 8in reference player can expect a call from the Safety section.
Byron, uncertain case
This season is only a week away, but already the NHL has had to break down on some occasions, at various levels, for border action. With a series of two and three games with the same teams, it should come as no surprise that the Canadian coach sees this kind of blow happening more regularly than usual.
“When you play back-to-back games against the same team, there is no doubt that animosity will form. What we saw this evening is something we expect to see very often, ”said Franco-Antarion.
Armia is not the only player to miss Saturday’s game against the same Conx. In the middle of the third period, Paul Byron hit a step through a powerful shot from Shia Weber. He was unable to complete the meeting. His condition is re-evaluated daily.
Another good show
Those who accused Canadians of playing sleepy hockey in recent campaigns have no reason to complain anymore. Already for the third time, in five games, the Montreals have scored at least five goals. Is the promotion of five chicken wings still in effect during the epidemic?
After eight minutes of play, we wondered whether or not to attend the ceremony of goals like the day before. It adds visibility to te enthusiasts, but it also gives coaches stomach ulcers.
“Quick four goals looked like Wednesday. When we got back to the locker room, we agreed to tighten our defensive game and reduce penalties to limit the opponent’s scoring chances. We received better than the day before.
