Peverley back, Stars upbeat about facing St. Louis Blues
Seguin said that the players and franchise were much relieved to see that Peverley was okay and as they head to face the Saint Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center, they will need their players to be healthy physically and mentally to play the game.
"Thank God he's OK," Seguin said. “Hockey's just a game at that point. It really puts things in perspective."
The incident which had everyone happened on Monday night when Peverley collapsed on bench during the first period of the home game against Columbus Blue Jackets. General manager Jim Nill said that Peverley was well and resting and was alright.
Dallas captain Jamie Benn said that the team was in much better mood and the atmosphere had lightened once they came to know on Tuesday that Peverley was not in serious condition and was going stable for now.
Benn said that the team was concerned for his health and when the news came that he was going strong and in stable condition, they were much relieved.
"It's a big relief," Benn said. "We were pretty scared there. Once we found out that he was good and stable, it was a very big relief. He's in good hands.”
Benn added that things like these were freak accident which no one had anticipated and every player was a family within, so it hurt to see even one of them in pain.
"It's something you never want to see. Obviously Rich is a big part of this team. We're obviously a family in here and we never want to see someone go down like that."
