All Brandon Prust

from Frank Servalli of TSN,

Here are five minutes with Prust on the Canucks’ struggles, how to right the ship, and his fight card this season:

TSN: How do you self-diagnose what’s been happening with the Canucks of late?

Prust: “It hasn’t been that easy to pinpoint. It’s kind of been a bunch of things. We’ve had some ups and downs. We’ve had some times we’ve looked great, where I think we look like a Stanley Cup contender. Then we’ve had slumps where we feel like a bottom-feeder. You know, we’re in one right now. It’s about getting out of slumps as fast as you can. We’re struggling to put the puck in the net. There’s a lot of games that we’ve been in. There’s been a lot of games we feel like we deserved to win, but we haven’t scored on our opportunities. (Tuesday night) that wasn’t the case at all. It was pretty lopsided. We have to rectify and realize what we’re doing wrong, getting our compete and battle level up.”

TSN: You’ve had a few games during this run where your team was almost never in it from the start of games. Can you put your finger on why? Is it a preparation issue?

Prust: “I think we’re well prepared. We’ve talked about getting off to a good start, something that every team focuses on, setting the tone. We just haven’t done that.”
