Stars win game delayed after player collapsesDallas Stars forward Rich Peverley remained hospitalized Tuesday in Dallas, undergoing heart tests after collapsing on the bench during a game that was postponed a night earlier.
His teammates did a fine job concentrating on the business at hand and earned a 3-2 overtime victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.
After an eerily quiet flight and a sleepless night all around, the Stars were back on the ice for a morning skate in St. Louis on Tuesday.
They were relieved that Peverley’s heart condition had stabilized but were clearly shaken by an event that put their playoff push in perspective.
Even if the NHL hadn’t postponed the game Monday with the Columbus Blue Jackets leading 1-0 early in the first period, linemate Tyler Seguin was done for the night.
He had come off the ice just ahead of Peverley and was right there when Peverley lost consciousness during what was called a “cardiac event.”
