Marco Sturm to miss remainder of playoffs with torn ACL & MCL

New, comments

The Bruins announced today that forward Marco Sturm will miss the rest of the playoffs with a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. The B's winger injured the knee during his first shift in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. He attempted to throw a check at Flyers defenseman Matt Carle and his leg hit the boards awkwardly. Sturm is expected to undergo surgery in the next 4 to 6 weeks once the swelling in the knee subsides. After surgery, Sturm will likely be out of action for 6 months while he recovers. The injury to the veteran forward's right knee comes just over a year after tearing the ACL and meniscus in his left knee.
