Armia (upper-body) not expected to play Wednesday; but is nearing a return.

Armia has been out since December 23rd but was a full participant in Tuesday's practice and head coach Claude Julien said he's close to returning. Julien added that he's "very doubtful" for Wednesday which makes him at least questionable for Thursday's game in Philadelphia.

Armia (lower-body) is not expected to play on Thursday.

Armia was forced to leave Tuesday’s game in New York and was not on the ice for Thursday’s morning skate. Armia will come out of the lineup vs. the Sabres, which means Tomas Tatar will play on the top power-play unit and Kenny Agostino was called-up to play on the third line and second power-play.
