Tonight, the Dallas Stars will play the make up game with Columbus Blue Jackets which was originally scheduled for March 10th.
At the 6:23 mark of the first period, Rich Peverley skated to the bench after his shift and collapsed on the bench. Having a known heart condition that kept Peverley out of the preseason, Rich had to be revived by on-site medical staff and a portable defibrillator.
The league rescheduled the game to be played in its entirety tonight, with the score beginning with Columbus holding a 1-0 lead.
The great folks at Bring Hockey Back created incredible shirts that highlight the team's perseverance proclaiming Dallas hockey "Is All Heart." Fans in attendance tonight are encouraged to don their shirts along with standing to a wild ovation with 17:17 mark of each period (17 of course representing Peverley's number).
