Armia collects as Finns trounce Germans

Joel Armia notched a goal and two assists Wednesday as Finland opened the World Junior Championship relegation round with an 8-0 trouncing of Germany. The productive outing gives Armia eight points (3+5) through five tourney games, eclipsing the seven (5+2) he posted in seven games of the 2012 tournament. Six of Armia's eight points have come on the power play, including a goal and an assist versus the Germans.

Finland continues relegation play Friday versus Slovakia.
