BOSTON (AP) -Marco Sturm will miss the rest of the Boston Bruins season with a right knee injury.

Coach Claude Julien said Sunday that Sturm will not be back after injuring his knee on the first shift of Boston's 5-4 overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Saturday's opener of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal. Game 2 is Monday night.

Sturm led the Bruins with 22 goals during the regular season but had no goals or assists in his seven postseason games.

He fell after throwing a check at Matt Carle. Aided by teammates Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi, he skated to the bench as he flexed his right knee. On Dec. 18, 2008, Sturm tore ligaments in his left knee and missed the rest of the season.
