Sturm out for season with torn ACL/MCL

Bruins forward Marco Sturm is out for the season after he crumpled to the ice when he missed a check on Philadelphia defenseman Matt Carle in the first period of Game 1 Saturday afternoon. The Bruins announced on Sunday that Sturm has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee and will need surgery in 4-6 weeks and then six months of rehabilitation time. Sturm was held pointless through the first seven games of the postseason but had been the Bruins' leading goal-scorer in the regular season with 22 strikes.

 

“Marco suffer a knee injury yesterday that will keep him out for the rest of the year,” coach Claude Julien said. “It is unfortunate news for our hockey club and especially for him who has battled through a major injury last year and was really looking forward to these playoffs.”

Lowell, Varitek in lineup vs. O's

Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek are in the lineup for the Red Sox' series finale in Baltimore against the Orioles, with both Adrian Beltre and Victor Martinez getting the day off. Varitek gets another day behind the dish with Sox starter Josh Beckett on the hill, though with a day game following a Saturday night contest, Martinez likely was in line for a day off regardless of the starter. Both Lowell (.344/.437/.541) and Varitek (.387/.424/.548) also enjoy excellent numbers against Baltimore tarter Kevin Millwood.

 

Here are the lineups:

 

RED SOX

 

Scutaro, 6

Pedroia, 4

Drew, 9

Matsuzaka, Red Sox succumb to Orioles

After allowing just one run and one hit over his first four innings Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed the Orioles to score six runs in the fifth inning as the O's claimed a 12-9 victory for their second straight win over the Red Sox, Saturday night at Camden Yards. Matsuzaka, who allowed seven runs over 4 2/3 innings, was relieved with two outs in the fifth by Tim Wakefield. Wakefield, making his first relief appearance since the 2004 American League Championship Series, became the first Red Sox reliever to allow three home runs since Keith Foulke in '06. The knuckleballer would give up five runs over 2 1/3 innings. The highlight for the Sox came in the form of David Ortiz' 35th career multi-home run game. The designated hitter blasted a solo shot in the first inning off of Baltimore starter Brad Bergesen before hitting his third home run of the season off of left-hander Alberto Castillo, onto Eutaw...

Bruins jump Flyers, grab 1-0 series lead

On his second shot of the game, Marc Savard scored with 6:08 left in the first overtime as the Bruins beat Philadelphia, 5-4, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Saturday afternoon at TD Garden, giving the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The goal came on a delayed penalty against the Flyers. Savard was playing his first game since suffering a concussion on March 7. 

 

Patrice Bergeron scored and assisted on another and Dennis Wideman added three assists, including on the game-winner, as the Bruins built leads of 2-0 and 3-1. Marco Sturm was injured and had to be helped off the ice in the opening three minutes of the game with an apparent right knee injury and did not return. His replacement on the Bergeron-Mark Recchi line, Steve Begin, scored the game's first goal. The Flyers tied the game on a spectacular rush by Daniel Briere, who split defenseman Wideman and Matt Hunwick to beat Tuukka Rask with just 3:...
