MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust is well aware of the turmoil surrounding the Toronto Maple Leafs these days, but he says his team has enough on its plate to deal with at the moment.
Saturday, Toronto is at Bell Centre to face Montreal for the first time since Oct. 8, when the Canadiens won the season opener against the Maple Leafs, 4-3 at Air Canada Centre.
Toronto has lost 21 of its past 25 games since starting 19-9-3.
Growing up in London, Ontario, Prust was a keen consumer of the media scrutiny that follows the Maple Leafs everywhere they go.
"I think they're definitely going through a rough time right now, and being in Canada, you see it all," Prust said. "I was a Leafs fan growing up, so I saw it all. We're not really worried about other teams right now, we've got to worry about ourselves."
