Flames rally for 4-3 shootout win over Stars in Dallas' 1st home game since Peverley collapse

DALLAS - Mike Cammalleri scored two goals, Corban Knight netted the winner in a shootout, and the Calgary Flames erased a two-goal deficit in the third period to beat Dallas 4-3 Friday night.

It was the Stars' first home game since forward Rich Peverley collapsed on their bench on Monday.

Peverley got a standing ovation when he was shown on the video board in the first period, four nights after he was revived by medical personnel during a game against Columbus that was postponed.

The 31-year-old Peverley, who was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in training camp, is out for the season. He will soon undergo a procedure designed to correct the condition.

The Stars looked as though they were on their way to a second straight win since Peverley's collapse, but the Flames scored a pair of goals 3 minutes apart to get even late in the third.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
