WATCH: Mantha chases Korpisalo from net with his 3rd of the season

It was just about a perfect period for the Detroit Red Wings, in stark contrast to the rest of their season. Michael Rasmussen put in his first NHL goal, Dylan Larkin scored his 150th and 151st NHL points, and Anthony Mantha chased Joonas Korpisalo from the Columbus Blue Jackets’ net with his 3rd goal of the season.

With a long stretch-pass from Dylan Larkin, Mantha was set off on a 2-on-0 with Darren Helm against Korpisalo. Bringing the puck to the top of the faceoff circle, he let off a wicked wrist shot that beat Joonas far-side for his 3rd of the year, and the Red Wings’ 3rd of the period. Korpisalo was then pulled from the net.

Not to mention that with Arby’s new updated threshold, Mantha earned everyone free curly fries with that goal! The Red Wings hold a 3-0 lead over the Blue Jackets during the first intermission. GO WINGS!



Struggling Red Wings cause new threshold for Arby’s to make it rain curly fries

Who doesn’t like curly fries? I mean, they’re not all that different from regular fries. Still potato-y and everything. But there’s just something about their pigtail-shaped cousins that makes them more appealing. Detroit Red Wings fans could potentially be getting a lot of more them, if Arby’s new promotional threshold has anything to say about it.

For over a decade now, Arby’s has offered the promotional free curly fries any time a Red Wings player scores a hat trick. All a fan needed to do was simply bring a copy of the game’s box score to an Arby’s location as proof, and they’d receive a free small curly fry. No purchase needed. (Some locations even just knew about the hat-trick and would simply need a patron to announce why they were there).
