In Finland, Joel Armia fired six shots but went without a point in 18:06 of work as Assat earned a 4-3 win over the Espoo Blues. Armia, who entered play coming off a two-goal, one-assist performance over the weekend, has yet to score in back-to-back games this year. The Aces enters Fenruary five points out of the final SM_liiga plahyoff spot.
Linus Ullmark served as backup as MODO's SEL squad rolled past Frolunda 6-1. Ullmark is 2-0 in top league play, earning a 1.19 GAA and .957 save% along the way.
