The Slumping Anthony Mantha

12/07/2022 at 10:50am EST

from Sammi Silber of Washington Hockey Now,

After a significant shoulder injury and subsequent surgery interrupted his first full year as a member of the Capitals last season, he came into this season 100 percent healthy and ready to make an impact, something the team needed with top-6 forwards Nicklas Backstrom, Tom Wilson and Connor Brown all hitting the injured list. However, the year’s been inconsistent at best, as he has just six goals and six assists through all 27 games this season.

The Capitals don’t think they’ve seen the best of Mantha yet. And going forward, the team expects more from the 28-year-old, who came over at the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for Jakub Vrana and high picks.

“He should be a big part of our offense,” general manager Brian MacLellan said.

Mantha has just one goal in his last 11 games. And though he has gotten some good looks on the third line with Lars Eller and Marcus Johansson, he hasn’t been able to capitalize on some of those high-danger chances.

Imagine Pittsburgh, St. Louis And Washington Missing The Playoffs

11/07/2022 at 9:07am EST

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

The Penguins are winless in their past seven games. The Blues have lost six straight in regulation. The Capitals are playing .462 hockey.

Oy.

Three programs with lengthy histories of being winners, going back more than a dozen years, that have combined for four Stanley Cups since 2016, are fighting it big time. Which is not to say they won’t come out of it. There’s too much institutional knowledge to write any of them off yet. But there are clearly some question marks.
