Sturm: 'Better than I expected'

WILMINGTON, Mass. – Boston Bruins forward Marco Sturm skated Tuesday morning at Ristuccia Arena for the first time since he suffered a knee injury in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers last spring. Sturm needed surgery to repair MCL and ACL tears.

He was working on skating and stick handling drills and spent about 30 minutes on the ice.

Sturm admitted he felt no pain, only a little weakness in his right leg.

“It was good. It was better than I expected,” Sturm said. “I’m just going to start rolling now and try to skate almost every day now and then we’ll see.”
