Red Wings 25-year-old winger Anthony Mantha single-handedly destroyed the Dallas Stars on Sunday night, putting up an absurd four goals--all of which Detroit needed to pull out a victory.
In front of his home crowd at Little Caesars Arena, Mantha ensured Wings fans were witness to some incredible entertainment. As for the Wings, they're 2-0 on the season with wins over the Nashville Predators and Dallas--not a bad way to start the year for a team many expected to be on the outside looking in as it pertains to the Eastern Conference Playoff picture.
“We beat two of the best teams out there," Mantha said after his four-goal performance, via the Detroit Free Press. “People rank those two teams as the top 10 in the league and here we are beating both teams in regulation. We said it over and over: We could surprise a lot of teams this year.”
Mantha and the Wings might have something cooking in Motown.
