That was also a reason.
But Mantha didn't outperform (2 G 1 A) anyone else who would have necessarily had his opurtunity (1st line with Pav + PP time) in his 10 games. Blashill said that he also didn't believe the PP success in those 10 games was Manthas doing.
Again, it's Anthony Mantha - not Alex Ovechkin were talking about.
Blash also said Joakim Andersson was up for insurance and PK and then he played every game and never on the PK.
