ST. LOUIS -- Stars forward Rich Peverley remained hospitalized Tuesday in Dallas, undergoing heart tests after collapsing on the bench during a game that was postponed. His teammates? They are trying to deal with what they saw. After an eerily quiet flight and sleepless nights all around, the Stars were back on the ice for a morning skate in St. Louis, relieved that Peverleys irregular heart condition had stabilized but clearly shaken by an event that puts their playoff push in perspective. Even if the NHL hadnt postponed the game Monday night in Dallas with the Blue Jackets leading 1-0 early in the first period, linemate Tyler Seguin was done for the night. Hed come off the ice just ahead of Peverley and was right there when Peverley lost consciousness during what the team called a "cardiac event." "I went in the room and took my stuff off right away," Seguin said, his voice catching a bit. "I was right beside him when it was all happening." Forward Vernon Fiddler was with Nashville when the Red Wings Jiri Fischer collapsed on the Detroit bench in 2005, also from a heart problem. "You dont expect that ever to happen," Fiddler said. "Ive been unfortunate to be part of both of those." Fiddler was among four Stars players made available after the morning skate, a veteran hoping to help the kids cope. "Its pretty emotional when you see your teammate collapse like that," Fiddler said. "We have some young guys on the team and its a lot more difficult for them because they havent been through things the older guys have been through. Youve got to help them through that." For one Stars teammate, Alex Chiasson, it was too much. The team said he had joined Peverley in a Dallas hospital for observation because he was so distraught. "Yeah, yeah, he wasnt doing good," coach Lindy Ruff said. "A lot of anxiety associated with what happened last night." The Blues also had emotions to sort out. Coach Ken Hitchcock was watching on TV and remembered "the silence was deafening." Hitchcock rewound his DVR and then froze the screen trying to detect who was in peril on the Stars bench, then waited nervously for an update. "Lindy saying hes OK, hes asking about Can he play? again, I think calmed everybody down," Hitchcock said. "But there was no way you could play the game. The look on the players faces on both sides, there was no way you could play the game." Blues forward Brenden Morrow has vivid memories of Buffalos Richard Zednik getting his throat slashed by the skate of a tumbling teammate in 2008. Morrow roomed with Zednik in juniors and the two were close friends. "Those are scary things," Morrow said. "I dont even know where to begin with what theyre thinking in that locker room." The 31-year-old Peverley, who averaged 16 minutes of ice time in all six games of the Stanley Cup last season with Boston, was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in training camp and underwent a procedure that sidelined him through the first regular season game. He had played in 60 consecutive games before sitting out at Columbus last week due to effects of his heart condition, but Mondays game was his third straight since then. "Hes always taken the precautions, hes a very focused, organized guy, you can say," said Seguin, who won a Stanley Cup with Peverley in Boston. "Sometimes bad things happen to good people." A doctor who specializes in the study of athletes and heart conditions questioned whether Peverley should have been playing, while taking care not to criticize those handling his medical needs. "Its a symptomatic athlete," said Dr. Barry Maron of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation. "Thats the key. A symptomatic athlete with known heart disease whos out there. That would not seem to be optimal." Ruff said there were no previous concerns about Peverley and praised team doctors for doing "a fabulous job monitoring the situation." Before the morning skate, Ruff emphasized the positive medical report. "Hes doing good, hes stable and hes in good spirits," he said. "A few guys whove interacted say hes got his sense of humour back already." General manager Jim Nill said Peverley was undergoing tests to find the "cause of the event and a long-term solution." The condition places Peverelys career in jeopardy and its likely he wont be back this season. Ruff, asked whether there was a prognosis for Peverleys return, replied: "No, no, nothing." This adds poignancy to Peverleys request, upon being revived, to get back out there. Every NHL season is filled with tales of players heading to the dressing room for repairs, getting stitched up, then rejoining the action seemingly no worse for wear. "Athletes in general, hockey players in general are kind of weird that way," Stars wing Ray Whitney said. "Youll play through injuries. Im not sure about playing through a heart injury. Thats a little bit aggressive in my opinion, but thats Rich." The Stars recalled forward Colton Sceviour and Chris Mueller from their Texas AHL affiliate and Ruff said both would be in the lineup against the Blues. "Were still in a big playoff race," centre Jamie Benn said. "I guess well be playing for Rich tonight." Josh Rosen Jersey

. LOUIS -- The St.(SportsNetwork.com) - A pair of struggling Western Conference teams will fight for a much-needed win on Saturday when the Los Angeles Kings host the Winnipeg Jets at Staples Center. The Jets and Kings both enter tonights battle having lost four of their last five games. Despite the recent slides, the teams are currently in playoff position as they are tied for the conferences two wild card spots at 47 points. Los Angeles has suffered through an inconsistent 2014-15 after claiming its second Stanley Cup title in three years last spring. The club has even struggled at home lately, losing two straight and three of its past four games in L.A. after beginning the season with a 13-4-1 record at the Staples Center. The Kings have lost two straight to begin a seven-game homestand and fell to 14-5-3 as the host this season following a regulation loss in Thursdays Stanley Cup Finals rematch against the New York Rangers. The Rangers fell in five games to L.A. for the Cup last spring, but the Blueshirts won the first encounter between the clubs in 2014-15. New York recorded a 4-3 win behind a 28-save performance from backup goaltender Cam Talbot. The Kings led New York 2-0 after a pair of first-period goals, but New York scored four straight to claim control. Justin Williams second goal of the game with 4:03 remaining in the third made it a one-goal game and LA went on a power play following Rick Nashs tripping penalty with 36 seconds left, but Talbot turned aside the only shot he saw before the final horn sounded. Tanner Pearson also found the back of the net, but Jonathan Quick was responsible for all four goals on 26 shots. You cant give up four goals in a game and expect to win, ever, said Kings coach Darryl Sutter. The good news for the Kings is they have won their last three games against Winnipeg, including a 4-1 win in L.ddddddddddddA. on Oct. 12. Pearson, Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter each posted a goal and an assist in the victory, while Kings backup Martin Jones earned the win with 29 saves. The October win also marked L.A.s third straight home win over the Jets. The Kings own a 7-0-2 mark at the in nine all-time meetings at the Staples Center against the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise. While the Kings have managed to earn four of a possible 10 points during their current 1-2-2 slide, the Jets are just 1-4-0 over their last five trips to the ice. Winnipeg has lost two straight and fell 4-1 Thursday at Arizona in the opener of a three-game road trip. Mikkel Boedker and Shane Doan each posted three- point nights in the win for the Coyotes, while Arizona goaltender Mike Smith stopped 34-of-35 shots. Arizona went 3-for-5 on the power play and killed off all seven Winnipeg power plays. Mathieu Perreault supplied Winnipegs lone goal and Ondrej Pavelec gave up all four goals on 30 shots as the Jets fell to 11-5-4 as the guest this season. Too many penalties. They were just better than us on special teams, Perreault said. They just kind of took the wind out of us. Pavelec has only one win since Dec. 2, a victory against the Buffalo Sabres on Dec. 16. He is 2-2-0 with a 2.54 goals against average in five career games against the Kings. Fellow Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson took the loss in his only career appearance against L.A., giving up three goals on 13 shots in the setback on Oct. 12. Quick is expected to start tonight for the Kings. He is 3-2-0 with a 3.15 GAA in six career games versus the Jets.
