New York Rangers Diary: Brandon Prust has 'a pretty ugly shiner'
When I came to New York City last season, I knew it was a great move for me both on and off the ice.
I was excited about playing in a big city and also about getting to live in Manhattan. Nothing can beat the pace of this city! I live on the Upper West Side, but I find myself spending a lot time downtown. Some of my favorite spots are La Esquina (best tacos in the city), LAVO and The Eldridge, which is always a good scene.
Last week I had a friend in town and had the chance to check out my first Broadway show, “Jersey Boys.” Great show; I definitely recommend seeing it.
As you may have heard, on the road in Boston last weekend, I got clipped by Bruins player, and I took a high stick pretty close to my eye. This left me with a pretty ugly shiner. I consider myself a relatively tough guy, but when it comes to the eyes, you always want to be careful.
Thankfully, I was given the OK to play with a shield and I was back on the ice for Sunday’s game, which we won.
Today, I am feeling 100 percent and ready to take on Atlanta at the Garden tonight. Hope to see you in the stands cheering us on.
