Keeping An Eye On Anthony Mantha

from Arthur J. Regner of DetroitRedWings.com,

"I can't lie. I'm pretty happy with my start," Mantha said. "I knew I wanted to come into this season and just have a good start and confidence could build up from there. I think it's working my way right now and I need to keep going this way."

When he was asked about the opposition keying in on him making it more difficult for him to find his spots on the ice, Mantha says it comes with the territory.

"Maybe a little bit (being keyed on) but as soon as you play on a line with Zetterberg he always faces those top Ds on the other side," he said about receiving extra attention. "For me, it's been a couple games I've been on his line. We've played against them (top lines) and even last year we played against the top D, so for me it's just to keep doing the simple things and things I'm good at.

"It's a great challenge for sure. You like playing against the best on the other side. I think for me it's to keep going the way I am and shooting more pucks and making plays. Just keep pushing offensively."

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
