Sturm won’t play against Kings

LOS ANGELES ‘€“ Bruins leading goal scorer Marco Sturm [1] will not play in this afternoon’€™s contest against the Kings. ‘€œHe’€™s got a leg injury so he won’€™t be able to play,’€ Bruins coach Claude Julien [2] said. ‘€œIt’€™s a little bit of creeping up to the point that he’€™s not able to go today.’€ The leg injury is considered day-to-day.

The B’€™s are looking to have defenseman Mark Stuart [3] and center David Krejci [4] back for the contest. ‘€œ[Stuart] is going to do the warm up, if everything goes well he should be in the lineup,’€ Julien said. ‘€œKrejci will also be in the warm up and if everything goes well there, he should be able to play.’€

Tim Thomas [5] will start in goal as Boston looks to close out a three-game road trip, building on a 2-1 victory in San Jose Thursday.
