Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars game postponed for Rich Peverley incident rescheduled

The NHL announced on Sunday that the game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Dallas Stars that was postponed due to Rich Peverely’s cardiac incident on March 10 has been rescheduled for April 9 in Dallas at 8:30 p.m. ET.

From the Stars:

The original game, which was halted at 6:23 of the first period due to a medical emergency involving Stars forward Rich Peverley, will be played for a full 60 minutes of regulation time, plus any potential overtime and shootout. The rescheduled contest will begin with the Blue Jackets ahead, 1-0 -- the score at the time play was stopped Monday. A goal will be credited to Nathan Horton, with assists to Matt Calvert and James Wisniewski. All other statistics will be expunged.

Today's decision mirrors actions the League took in rescheduling the postponed game between the Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena on Nov. 21, 2005, as a result of a medical emergency involving Detroit player Jiri Fischer at 12:30 of the first period.

Tickets for the postponed Monday, March 10 are now valid to the rescheduled game on Wednesday, April 9. Fans that possess a ticket dated March 10 do not need to exchange it. The seat from March 10 is reserved for April 9, and the existing ticket will be valid for admission. Fans with questions on the process may call 214-GO-STARS. Season Ticket Holders may direct any questions to their Customer Service Managers.

Columbus plays at home on Tuesday, April 8, against the Phoenix Coyotes and then flies to Tampa Bay for a Friday, April 11 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Dallas hosts Nashville on Tuesday, April 8, and then hosts St. Louis on Friday, April 11.

One wrinkle to keep an eye on: The Stars were set to face Curtis McElhinney in that postponed game; will they see Sergei Bobrovsky instead?
