Brandon Prust is "playing the best hockey of his career," according to Habs coach Michel Therrien.
Prust had a goal and two assists Thursday night, and he has nine points on the season -- by far the best offensive pace of his career -- to go with 81 penalty minutes. "He's getting a chance and he's playing the best hockey of his career," Therrien said. "He's in a position not only to play defence and kill penalties, but also to contribute on offence. That line was our best line tonight." Prust is a solid start because of those penalty minutes and becomes a stronger one if he can keep producing offensively.
