The Swiss Leo Braillard quickly gave the visitors the lead with his first career goal, in the 34th second of the game. Shawinigan struck three more times.
Defender Jordan Tourigny was an accomplice on three of his four nets.
The Armada finally found a way to beat goaltender Remi Delafontaine in the third period. Vincent Desjardins scored his second goal of the campaign before seeing Jonathan Fauchon rattle the strings for the 18th time of the season, midway through the third period. However, the efforts of Bruce Richardson's troupe were insufficient.
The Armada will visit the Foreurs on Saturday night in Val-d’Or.
