National Hockey League Game Capsules(Monday, March 10th)
Columbus at Dallas, postponed
Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Monday's game between the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets has been postponed after Stars' forward Rich Peverley suffered a medical emergency while on the bench early in the first period. Peverley, who had a procedure performed during the preseason to correct an irregular heartbeart, collapsed shortly after completing a shift as players from both teams frantically called for medical personnel to assist the nine- year veteran. The incident occurred with 13:37 remaining in the first period and the Blue Jackets holding a 1-0 lead. Peverley was transported to a local hospital after being attended to for several minutes, and the Stars later issued a statement saying that he is conscious and his current condition is not life-threatening. The 31-year-old was held out of the Stars' game at Columbus last Tuesday following a recurrence of his condition, but returned two days later and recorded two assists in Dallas' 6-1 win over Vancouver. Peverley regained consciousness before he left American Airlines Center, with both Salazar and Stars head coach Lindy Ruff remarking that he was asking to get back in the game. A makeup date for Monday's contest has yet to be determined.
Final Score: Pittsburgh 3, Washington 2
Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Kunitz potted a pair of goals, including the go-ahead marker in the second period, as the Pittsburgh Penguins continued their recent dominance of the Washington Capitals with a 3-2 victory at Verizon Center. Sidney Crosby assisted on both of Kunitz's scores and tallied one of his own in Pittsburgh's seventh consecutive win over the Capitals, while Jeff Zatkoff outperformed counterpart Jaroslav Halak with a 31-save performance between the pipes. Halak, making his second start for Washington since being acquired from Buffalo at last week's trade deadline, stopped just 17-of-20 shots. Eric Fehr and Nicklas Backstrom accounted for Washington's goals in the loss, the Capitals' fourth in five games. The two rivals will square off again Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
Final Score: Nashville 4, Ottawa 3 (OT)
Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Rookie defenseman Seth Jones scored with 1:11 remaining in overtime and the Nashville Predators edged the Ottawa Senators 4-3. The Senators forced the extra session with a spirited third-period comeback, scoring three times in the final 12:05. On the game-ending goal, Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis had a breakaway. Robin Lehner stopped Ellis' shot, but Jones pushed the rebound under the goalie's right pad. Nick Spaling combined with Craig Smith and Eric Nystrom for a three-goal second period. The output matched the total amount of goals Nashville scored in its previous four games, all regulation losses. Pekka Rinne made 34 saves in his first win since returning from a hip infection. Anderson allowed three goals on 29 shots before being shaken up in a third-period collision. Lehner stopped 12 shots in relief for Ottawa, which has dropped five of its last seven games.
Final Score: Phoenix 4, Tampa Bay 3 (SO)
Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Radim Vrbata scored the winner in the shootout as the Phoenix Coyotes edged the Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-3. Vrbata had the second chance for Phoenix and he faked to the backhand before lifting it high past Ben Bishop. Mike Smith then stretched the left pad out to the post to stop Ryan Callahan's stuff attempt for the win. Martin Erat, Brandon McMillan and Mikkel Boedker all scored for the Coyotes, who have won three of their last four. Smith stopped 28 shots. Ondrej Palat had two goals and an assist for the Lightning, who have dropped a season-high five straight games. Tyler Johnson also scored and Bishop made 17 saves.
