Anthony Mantha understands where Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill was coming from when he called Mantha out.

"You can take it two ways," Mantha said. "You can take it the way, oh, he’s always on my back, or you can tell yourself, he cares about me and he wants me to be a better player. It’s for me to take the decision to get better and that’s what I’ll do." It's worth noting that Mantha has had a great season overall with 10 goals and 19 points in 22 games. He should bounce back from this rough patch.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill called out Anthony Mantha after Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

"Anthony Mantha has got to be way better. Way better. It's not OK to just be a passenger when you are given the opportunity to be an impact player," said Blashill. "He's not alone, but certainly he is a guy who — I said to him at the beginning of the year, 'for us to be great, you've got to be great.' He's gone through large stretches of being great, but he hasn't been great the last two games." He was disappointed with other players, but he is clearly looking for more from Mantha, who leads the team with 10 goals and has 19 points in 22 games.
