Brandon Prust (upper body) is game time decision for tonight game vs Rangers. #canadiens — Renaud Lavoie (@RenLavoieRDS) February 23, 2013 ...geez, now ex-Rangers might not play in this game?

Joe Finley vs. Brandon Prust

Wow! Big Joe Finley is becoming a much better fighter and not leading with his chin any more as he did in his first professional fight. Actually, I would say that Finley did pretty well in this fight.
