One day after Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed during a game, the hockey community spoke up about the incident and were relieved that Peverley is in stable condition. "Thank God hes OK," Stars forward Tyler Seguin said as his club prepared to face the St. Louis Blues Tuesday night. "Hockeys just a game at that point. It really puts things in perspective." The incident occurred with 13:37 remaining in the first period of Mondays contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Peverley was transported to hospital after being attended to for several minutes, and the Stars later issued a statement saying that he was conscious and his condition was not life-threatening. "Hes doing good. Hes stable, hes in good spirits," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said on Tuesday. "A few guys said hes interacted and said hes got his sense of humour back and ready. Hes in good medical care and the story we get to tell is a real good one. Thats the part I like." On Tuesday, Stars general manager Jim Nill said in a statement that Peverley is in stable condition and has been communicating with teammates and friends since he was admitted into hospital. Nill said doctors are focused on finding a long-term solution to Peverleys irregular heartbeat. The condition was diagnosed in training camp, and he underwent a procedure that sidelined him for the preseason and the season opener. "Its a big relief. We were pretty scared there. Once we found out that he was good and stable, it was a very big relief," Stars captain Jamie Benn said. "Hes in good hands. Its something you never want to see. Obviously Rich is a big part of this team. Were obviously a family in here and we never want to see someone go down like that." The Stars game against the Blue Jackets was postponed after Peverley went down. "Its scary when you see something like that happen," Senators captain Jason Spezza said. "Its very scary when you see a guy collapse like that; Im sure those guys that were involved in the incident are pretty shaken up and everyone wishes him the best and hopefully he recovers well. "When you see things like that happen, it puts things into perspective for everybody and their families." Senators forward Clarke MacArthur added "When something like that happens its like time stands still. I was just waiting by the TV hoping to hear the best news possible. Thank God for the trainers and the guys who took care of him. Hes got a wife and a family and its a scary situation." Blue Jackets centre Brandon Dubinsky said Tuesday that he and his teammates are coming to grips with what they witnessed. "Obviously being part of a traumatic incident like that is never easy, but hopefully the fact he is doing well will allow us to get ready for an important game," Dubinsky said. Blue Jackets forward Nathan Horton added: "I was sick to my stomach wondering if hes OK." The situation on the bench brought back memories of when Detroit defenceman Jiri Fischer went into cardiac arrest during a game against the Nashville Predators on Nov. 21, 2005. Fischer, now the Red Wings director of player development, subsequently retired due to heart problems. "It affects everybody," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "I know how rattled our guys were. Its way different than hockey and obviously way more important than hockey." Senators head coach Paul MacLean, who was an assistant coach in Detroit when Fischers emergency happened, added, "When I got home last night I got to see it again on the news and its a terrible thing to have happened; having been there for one previous event, its scary. Its really scary to see something like that happen. You dont expect that from professional athletes with the highest fitness level. It gives you a bad feeling in your stomach." Meanwhile in Montreal, Canadiens forward Brandon Prust said Peverley has the support of the entire NHL. "I think everyone in the league is thinking about him and praying for him," Prust said. "Its always really sad to see, it kind of breaks your heart."

Amarista celebrated his 25th birthday by delivering a go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh inning to lift the San Diego Padres to a 4-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. "I was happy," Amarista said. "Instead of me getting gifts from my teammates, I gave a gift to the team. After all that we went through this series, to get a W the way we did and come through on my birthday is something Im not going to forget." Will Venable and Tommy Medica singled with one out in the seventh. Nathan Eovaldi was able to get Yasmani Grandal to ground out before Amarista came to plate. Batting for pitcher Ian Kennedy, Amarista drove the ball over the right-field wall on the ninth pitch of the at-bat for a 3-1 lead. "Hes a little guy, but hes got a little sock on the pull side," Padres manager Bud Black said. Amarista, a centre fielder, was held out of the starting lineup, but came through when he got his chance. "Some guys were giving me a hard time, you always play a guy on his birthday," Black said. "We didnt start him, but he sort of showed me I guess." Kennedy (1-1) was sharp, using his fastball and curveball as he allowed one run and three hits in six innings. He struck out five before exiting in favour of Amarista. "Its a good birthday gift for him," Kennedy said. "If he does that every single time, thats pretty awesome." Four relievers then helped the Padres end a four-game losing streak, including two against the Marlins to begin the series. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his second save. "No doubt it was a good win. You hate to leave on a loss, especially a sweep,"; Black said.dddddddddddd. Eovaldi (1-1) held the Padres scoreless through six. Eovaldi struck out eight, which tied a career high. "I definitely didnt see that coming," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Eovaldi pitched a great game and deserved better than that, but sometimes thats the way it goes." The Marlins completed their opening homestand with a 5-2 record. "The goal is to try to win every series and we were able to do that," Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee said. "We had a chance to go for a sweep today. We had our chances, but now we have to go on the road and try to keep the momentum going." Miami got a run back in the bottom of the seventh with Jeff Bakers pinch-hit RBI double. San Diegos Yonder Alonso had a sacrifice fly in the eighth to extend the lead to 4-2. It was the first time this season San Diego had scored at least four runs in a game. "No doubt weve got to get the bats going," Black said. "Ive said that repeatedly over the last three to four days. You look at some of those averages and theyre obviously a little low. We need those guys to start getting some hits." Giancarlo Stanton pushed his RBI total to 12 in the fourth with a base hit to drive in Christian Yelich, who tripled to lead off the inning. Stanton already has a career-high RBI total for April. NOTES: Stanton posted nine RBIs in April in each of the last three years. ... It was the first career pinch-hit home run for Amarista. ...
