Detroit Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill had some harsh words for forward Anthony Mantha, who suffered the wrath of the coach’s ire after Detroit’s 6-2 blowout loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

“It’s a hard league if you don’t show up with shift-to-shift intensity every single night,” Blashill said after the loss.

“We’ve got some young guys that have really helped in our success, when we’ve had success, but with those types of minutes comes big-time responsibility.
