Brandon Prust found himself on linesman Scott Driscoll’s bad side last night in Montreal’s game against the Sabres.
You don’t want to be on Driscoll’s bad side.
Brandon Prust just earned a penalty. Escorted off the ice and to the room. Barking at the ref?

Prust earned himself two-minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct.
He kept on jawing at the officials and soon found his night coming to an abrupt end. Referees Ghislain Hebert and Brian Pochmara slapped Prust with a game misconduct for his continual yapping at Driscoll.
Linesman Scott Driscoll doesn’t take too kindly to backtalk. He’s also the one who famously found himself on the receiving end of a Dan Carcillo shove during last year’s playoffs.
Too many zebras figure fans come to see them lay down the law. Prust gets 2, 10 & 10 more for chirping linesmen? Bloody ridiculous #HabsIO

No, we didn’t, but man I’d love to know what exactly earned Prust an early trip to the showers…
