Bruins say there is no Sturm trade

Immediately following Thursday's win over Tampa, the Bruins released the following statement regarding the uncertainty surrounding the reported trade of forward Marco Sturm to the Kings:

"I am aware of the various media reports today regarding Marco Sturm," said Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli. "I can confirm that I spoke to Marco about waiving his no trade clause and have had discussions regarding Marco with other teams. I can also confirm that there is no trade in place with Marco. At this time, Marco is a member of the Boston Bruins and will continue to train with our team."


Earlier in the day, reports emerged that Sturm, recovering from a torn ACL and MCL suffered in the playoffs last year, had been traded to the Kings for a conditional fifth round pick. Hours went by with no announcement of a deal from either club. Around the start of the Bruins' game vs. the Lightning, TSN's Bob McKenzie that the deal had fallen...

Eight a plenty: B's blast Lightning

David Krejci scored twice and six different Bruins scored at least once as the Bruins romped to a 8-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday night at TD Garden. Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi, Milan Lucic, Blake Wheeler, Shawn Thornton and Dennis Seidenberg also scored for the Bruins, who have outscored the competition, 11-1, in the last two games. 

 

Tim Thomas allowed only one goal, a score by Victor Hedman, with 15:14 left in the third to spoil his bid for a second straight shutout and his fifth of the season. 

 

The game also marked the return of Marc Savard after missing the first 23 games with post-concussion symptoms. He had one shot in just over 15 minutes of ice time and centered the third line with Tyler Seguin and Ryder.

Report: Sturm trade dead for time being
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, the deal that would send Bruins forward Marco Sturm to the Kings is up in the air due to medical concerns. Sturm is coming off a second major knee surgery and is weeks away from being able to play in games. 

 

Sturm had reportedly waived his no-trade clause to facilitate the deal. McKenzie is reporting that there is "no deal in place at this time" and that there is uncertainty over whether a deal could be completed.

Savard makes season debut for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard will make his long-awaited season-debut on Thursday night when the Bruins take on the Lightning. Savard will center Tyler Seguin and Michael Ryder, while Jordan Caron is a healthy scratch for the first time since the season-opener on Oct. 9. Caron missed two games last weekend with the flu.

 

Savard met with Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien Thursday to determine the center's status after he skated earlier in the day. 

 

“When I am able to play, I can’t wait," Savard said before the meeting on Thursday. "It’s going to be an exciting time."

 

Savard has missed the beginning of the season with post-concussion symptoms. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins.
