John Tortorella tells Blueshirts United that Brandon Prust's struggles are due to him being banged up...

"This spread schedule hopefully is going to help him. We're trying to get him healthy, and Prust is a big part of our team, and he has struggled. I believe he has struggled, on the ice, because he's banged up. We just need to get him healthy."

In 15 games this season Prust has 2 goals, 5 points, and 26 penalty minutes.

...not surprising to hear this as he has not been himself this season. Assuming it has to do with the shoulder he had surgery on in April.

...i do want to point out that he made an outstanding defensive play in the first period diving to break-up a certain breakaway. Makes that play or the more impressive.
