Anthony Mantha feels he learned his lesson from being a healthy scratch twice earlier this month.
"He just wants me to bring it every night, and that is, basically, what I need to learn," Mantha said referring to coach Jeff Blashill. "We have been working on it for years now, even when I was playing in (Grand Rapids), we were talking about it. It's just something that needs to come into my mind and be an automatic instinct for me to move my feet as hard as I can and do the little details." Mantha didn't have a point in six outings prior to scoring the game winner against Montreal on Tuesday night. Mar 23 - 8:28 AM

Anthony Mantha will return from the press box on Wednesday night.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past two games, but will play against Colorado. "I think he'll respond great. Doesn't mean he'll play great," coach Jeff Blashill said. "It means, in the long term, his long-term approach is that he wants to be a very good hockey player. So I think, in the end, he'll get as close as possible to reaching his ceiling." Mantha has 14 goals and 33 points in 50 games this season. He hasn't gone more than two games without a point since late January.

"I just have to come back when I get a chance and try to prove that I'm never going to sit again. Obviously, this is hard."

"There's opportunities in coaching to have kind of teaching moments to make sure the trajectory of the player is upward as we're going to need him to be," Blashill said. "He's going to be a great player in the league, he's going to be a great player for us still this year, but tonight we're going to give him an opportunity to watch and then he'll get back in there, and when he gets his opportunity I assume he's going to be great." Mantha has 14 goals and 33 points in 50 contests this season. He talked with Blashill and said that he'll work harder, so we'll see how he responds when he's back in the lineup.
