Sturm not at Friday practice
Friday morning they hit the ice for practice again with one last home game on the docket Saturday against Vancouver. Andrew Ference, trying to return from a groin injury, again skated. Forward Marco Sturm did not take the ice and defenseman Derek Morris joined practice late.
The formal session started at 11:30 a.m. but at around 11, a handful of players were already on the ice working on different power-play situations with assistant coach Geoff Ward.
