Sturm's practice shortened

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Winger Marco Sturm made an unplanned exit from Bruins practice Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena after about 45 minutes of the hour-long session.

Head coach Claude Julien said that Sturm, who has already missed two games with a leg injury, is questionable for Thursday night's game against Columbus.

Defenseman Matt Hunwick took a puck to his left eye during battle drills and was bleeding. He left the ice but returned to finish up the drill and should be fine for the Blue Jackets game.

While Sturm at least got on the ice, injured forwards Steve Begin and Byron Bitz didn't practice and remained day-to-day.
