from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
The Wings have had six games this season. How many of those games has Mantha felt, coming off the ice, he’s had a good game?
Detroit Red Wings right wing Anthony Mantha has one goals and two assists while being a minus-5 in six games.
“One,” said Mantha, during Monday’s Zoom chat with the media. “The afternoon game against Columbus (Jan. 18), the one we won in overtime.”
He has a power-play goal in the 3-2 OT win at Little Caesars Arena. That, in itself, goes a long way to show how much of a frustrating start to this season it’s been for Mantha.
“Oh yeah,” Mantha said. “It’s not something that I like, to not be involved and help the team. I’m someone that’s hard on myself and I want to get better and that’s the mentality I’m going in with.
“Today was a good day at practice and it’s fun when we play every other night, so I can redeem myself as quick as (Tuesday) night.”
In a sluggish start to this season, Sunday’s loss in Chicago was a personal low point for Mantha.
