Anthony Mantha Critique's His Play

01/25/2021 at 7:26pm EST

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.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
