Brandon Prust chipped in his second career playoff goal during Thursday's 6-2 Game Four win over Tampa Bay.
Of course, Prust's goal was also the sixth in Montreal's line of tallies. But give him credit, Prust drove the net through Jason Garrison's check and poked the puck, with one hand, back at goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. Which proceeded to rebound again, then off Vasilevskiy's glove before Garrison's stick knocked it in. But it looks like a laser in the books. Prust, who also took a minor in the game, now has 10 points and 112 PIMs in 51 career playoff games. May 7 - 11:28 PM

Brandon Prust has been fined $5K for his "derogatory public comments directed toward Referee Brad Watson" during last Sunday's post-game interviews.

Per HL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell, "Brandon Prust's post-game comments were both baseless and demeaning of a referee whose 20-year career in the League has been marked by professionalism, integrity and a high degree of respect from players, coaches and management." And with that, Prust's bank account lightens up a bit.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien wasn't happy with Brandon Prust's comments about referee Brad Watson.

Prust claimed that Watson was provoking him and that the referee likes to "play God." Therrien said that he feels what happens on the ice should stay on the ice. "We'll take care of that internally," Therrien said, referring to Prust's comments.

Brandon Prust made it very clear after Sunday's 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay that he was unhappy with referee Brad Watson.

"I thought the original call was kind of soft and I let (Watson) know on the way to the penalty box," Prust said, referring to his first period roughing penalty. "He kept provoking me, he came to the box and called me every name in the book (expletives removed), coward, said he’d drive me right out of the building. That's the kind of ref he is, he tries to play God, tries to control the game and he did it tonight." Prust might end up receiving a fine for that statement. By the end of the game, Prust had accumulated 31 penalty minutes.

Brandon Prust is sorry that he injured Derek Stepan with his late hit in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Prust was suspended two games for the hit in the first period that broke Stepan’s jaw. The former Ranger texted Stepan to say he felt "awful" about the result of the hit. "It's an unfortunate injury, unfortunate for him and unfortunate for me," Prust said. "I'm not out there trying to injure anybody, and (Stepan's) a friend of mine. My main focus of my hit was keeping my elbow tucked and trying to make sure I got him in the chest. By no means, whether they're friends or not, you don't want to injure anybody." The Canadiens trail in the series 2-1, with Game 4 on Sunday night.
