Sturm's quiet playoffs end with knee injury

Lindy Ruff said in Thursday's wrapup press conference that a Buffalo win in the first round would have resulted in a lot of fingers in Boston pointing at the no-shows of Marco Sturm and Milan Lucic, much the same way everyone in these parts is giving it to Tim Connolly and Derek Roy.

Sturm didn't have a goal against the Sabres and he won't have any more chances in these playoffs. He limped off the ice on the first shift yesterday and the Bruins announced today that he's done for the playoffs with a serious knee injury. Torn ACL AND MCL? Yikes. Might see him by Halloween.

At first glance, a big loss for the Bruins. At second glance, no goals in seven games and the B's are 5-2 in the playoffs thus far after yesterday's thrilling OT win over the Flyers.

Hard to figure these playoffs. Bruins are looking mighty good right now.
