Anthony Mantha On The Playoffs

06/10/2021 at 7:18pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

...Washington was eliminated in five games by Boston, with Mantha contributing two assists and no goals in the five games. His ice time dwindled to a series-low 12:23 seconds in Game 5....

"All the excitement that goes with it, the continuous overtimes," Mantha said. "You don't want to make any mistakes. You're trying to create something offensively. Just playing a couple of games will help out a lot in my future.

"The fact we didn't win was the only (negative). It's fun, exciting, but at the end of the day you're playing to win every playoff series. It didn't go our way and so you look back and you're real disappointed we didn't get to advance."...

"I'm a little disappointed in myself, the way I played," Mantha said. "But hopefully I can come back stronger next season and I'll know what to expect.

"I went some games there at the end of the year when I didn't score any goals. We had couple of games that went into overtime in the series. If you score two goals, maybe you win those games.

"It's so tight out there (on the ice), there's not a lot of room. I just need to create more space for myself in those types of games."

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
