When Peverley collapsed, confusion, concern, relief

When the Dallas Stars’ Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench during Monday night’s Stars-Columbus Blue Jackets game, there was initial confusion.

Then came word what had happened.

A bit less than a half-hour later, the Stars let everyone know that Peverley — who had been treated for an irregular heartbeat at the beginning of the season –€“ had suffered a "cardiac event" but was OK.

And that stuff about hockey players being tough? It’s not just a cliche.

And everybody was on board with the NHL’s decision to postpone the game.
