The Duo Of Anthony Mantha And Filip Zadina

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

Yesterday we had a couple of scoring chances," Mantha said. "Obviously Montreal wasn't my best game, first game back, played a couple minutes. Yesterday I think was a better sample. He got robbed that one play, that 3-on-2 with Fil, himself and me. Then we had another scoring chance, he hit me for a breakaway. Chances are there, it's just a matter of time for them to go in."

After the game Sunday, Zadina said he enjoyed playing with Mantha.

"It's tough to say right now, after two games, but we both are skill players and we know what to do with the puck and when to pass the puck," Zadina said. "For sure it's easier to play with him. I'm so glad to play with him and give him some chances and create some plays together. It's fun."

Of course, the two will get to know each other better the more they play on the same line and Mantha will get more in the swing of things after missing so much time.

"I felt better last night personally," Mantha said. "Just getting back into it, obviously it takes a couple times. But like I said, yesterday felt better and hopefully next game tomorrow night it's even better than those two games."

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.
