Who's in for a little seven-card stud? Marco Sturm, the Boston Bruins' left wing, certainly is. Linda Holliday joins this ice hockey champ at the Liberty Hotel in this 'Off the Field' to talk about philanthropy, his recent winning goal at Fenway and his secret vice: shopping!
The inaugural Poker Party was a special event to benefit the Boston Bruins Foundation. All proceeds from the event went to the Franciscan Hospital for Children. A father himself, Sturm said the cause was very close to his heart. He actually has his own foundation in Germany and added, 'I do anything I can to help them.'
Hot off his winning goal in overtime at the Bruins/Flyers Fenway Duel, Sturm was smiling the entire evening. Also in attendance were teammates Patrice Bergeron, Johnny Boychuk, Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Mark Recchi, Marc Savard, Dennis Seidenberg, Mark Stuart, Tuukka Rask, Blake Wheeler and Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys.
