Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust shed some light on a melee that erupted during the second period of Saturday's game after he and Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop exchanged words.

Prust also clarified that he did not spear Bishop.

Bishop had the last laugh as the Lightning went on to defeat the Canadiens 2-1 in overtime.
