   DALLAS (AP) — When the pounding of their sticks on the boards didn't get the attention of the officials, Dallas Stars players jumped off the bench and onto the ice while the game was going on.
   Teammate Rich Peverley had collapsed, and Stars coach Lindy Ruff was among those trying frantically to carry him into a nearby tunnel.
   After the game stopped and the chaotic scene played out, the 31 year old Peverley was stabilized, transported to a hospital and in good condition Monday night.
   But for several anxious minutes on the ice, the Stars stood in stunned silence, clearly in distress, unsure what had happened to a player just six months removed from undergoing a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.
   "When he dropped, it was red alert," Ruff said after the game between Dallas and Columbus was postponed with the Blue Jackets leading 1-0 in the first period. "Don't worry about the game. It was about getting the doctors. The players don't want to play, and I don't want to coach the team right now."
   Stars forward Erik Cole tried to rush into the tunnel just after Peverley was carried through, only to be turned away. He then gnawed at the thumb on one of his gloves while he waited for word on what the players would do next.
   Sergei Gonchar stared blankly near fellow defenseman Trevor Daley, who was hunched over on the bench, wiping his face with a towel.
   "I was scared," Ruff said.
   Play was halted at 6:23, and the postponement was announced about 30 minutes later.
   Dr. Gil Salazar of UT Southwestern Hospitals said Peverley was treated "successfully" for a cardiac event at American Airlines Center.
   "We provided oxygen for him," Salazar said. "We started an IV. We did chest compressions on him and defibrillated him, provided some electricity to bring a rhythm back to his heart, and that was successful with one attempt, which is very reassuring.
   "As soon as we treated him, he regained consciousness. He was able to tell me where he was."
   Many in the hushed crowd lingered long after the postponement was announced "as a result of the emotional state of the players on both teams caused by the medical emergency." The NHL didn't say when the game would be rescheduled.
   Peverley's wife, Nathalie, accompanied him to a hospital, and the Stars essentially told the Blue Jackets they weren't up for finishing the game.
   "They're shaken and they want to reschedule. We understand that," John Davidson, the Blue Jackets president of hockey operations, told Fox Sports Ohio. "They were shaken to the core."
   Peverley missed the preseason and the season opener because of a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, a condition diagnosed during a training camp physical. He made his Stars debut on Oct. 5 against Washington.
   "We monitor him closely for a different type of arrhythmia he has," Salazar said. "He does have a pre-existing condition, and the condition — a normal quivering of the heart that does not allow him to send blood to places where he needs to, in his brain and heart."
   Peverley sat out last week's game at Columbus because of an irregular heartbeat. He had felt strange after last Monday's game and couldn't fly. He played in Dallas' next two games before Monday.
   "There wasn't any concern," Ruff said. "Our doctors have done a fabulous job monitoring the situation."
   In 62 games this season before Monday, Peverley had seven goals and 23 assists.
   He was acquired last July from Boston with forward Tyler Seguin and defenseman Ryan Button for forwards Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser, and defenseman Joe Morrow.
   "The first thing (Peverley) asked me was how much time was left in the first period," Ruff said.
   The Stars went to the airport after the postponement, and even had a scheduled departure for St. Louis that was earlier than it would have been if the game was played. Dallas is scheduled to play the Blues on Tuesday night.
   "He's going to be OK," Ruff said. "The care he's getting and the care going forward is the most important thing."

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera hit his first two home runs of spring training and AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer struck out five in 4 2-3 scoreless innings Monday during the Detroit Tigers' 17-5 romp over the St. Louis Cardinals.
 
Cabrera a go-ahead, two-run homer off Shelby Miller in a seven-run third inning and another two-run drive against Keith Butler in an eight-run fourth as Detroit built a 15-0 lead. The Tigers made 17-0 on Steven Moya's two-run double in the eighth.
 
"You feel like this could happen every day," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "Obviously it won't, but it could."
 
Scherzer allowed two hits and a walk.
 
"Right now I'm very sharp," Scherzer said. "Usually it takes a while to get all the pitches going. Right now I feel very good about where all my pitches are at - all four. I was generating swings and misses on all four of them."
 
St. Louis pitchers allowed double-digit runs for the second straight day and 22 hits.
 
Nick Castellanos hit a three-run homer for the Tigers in the fourth. Prospect Stephen Piscotty hit a three-run homer in the seventh for the Cardinals, his first of spring training.
 
STARTING TIME
 
St. Louis: Miller gave up two runs and five hits in 2 1-3 innings, while Stoppelman gave up five runs and five hits while getting just two outs. Tyler Lyons also got just two outs, allowing seven runs and six hits.
 
"I felt like my fastball command wasn't near as good as I wanted it to be but you're going to have days where you are a little off," Miller said. "Obviously, I didn't want to give up any runs but at the same time, I felt good. I thought I am getting better out there."
 
Detroit: Justin Verlander is set to make his first start of spring training on Tuesday against Toronto after recording from core muscle repair surgery. His first scheduled start was rained out, and Verlander opted to throw in a batting cage.
 
TRAINERS' ROOM
 
Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said outfielder Andy Dirks' back surgery was successful. Dirks is expected to need 12 weeks to recover.
 
St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Oscar Taveras (hamstring) is moving well, but the Cardinals aren't going to rush him. The Cardinals' top prospect missed most of spring training while recovering from offseason ankle surgery.
 
MEET DIAZ
 
Shortstop Aledmys Diaz, who signed last weekend, will begin the season in the minors. The Cardinals will give him some time in major league spring training games, but that won't happen for at least a few days. Diaz has to return to Mexico, where he's been living since his defection, to obtain a U.S. work visa.
 
DUELING CENTERFIELDERS
 
Peter Bourjos and Jon Jay are battling to become the Cardinals' starting centerfielder. On Monday they were both in the starting lineup for the first time this spring training. Bourjos covered plenty of ground in center and went 2 for 2, while Jay played right field and went 0 for 2 with a walk.
 
RUSHING ALONG
 
Lou Villano had to make a quick trip from the field to the press box. The official scorer for the Cardinals' high Class A affiliate in Palm Beach sung the national anthem, then returned to the press box where he inputs the data for MLB.com.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals and the St. Louis Blues took over the top spot in the NHL standings with a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.
 
In his first shootout since his memorable Olympic performance against Russia, Oshie beat Ilya Bryzgalov - a Russian - through the five-hole in the first round. Steen sealed the win in the following round after the Blues' Brian Elliott turned away Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu.
 
The Wild fell behind 2-0 early, but tied it with second-period goals from Jason Pominville and Matt Moulson.
 
Oshie and Carlo Colaiacovo scored on the second and third shots of the game for St. Louis. It was Colaiacovo's first goal since Feb. 11, 2012, a span of 42 games.
 
Bryzgalov had 21 saves in his first start for Minnesota since coming over in a trade with Edmonton on Tuesday.
 
The momentum shifted in the second after Pominville scored at 3:11 to make it 2-1.
 
Matt Moulson tied it 4 minutes later with his first goal in a Wild sweater since being acquired in a trade with Buffalo on Wednesday.
 
Mikko Koivu intercepted a clearing attempt and zipped the puck to Moulson, who was in front of the net and knocked it past Brian Elliott.
 
Elliott stopped 17 shots and kept the game tied at 2 with a lunging stick save to deny Mikael Granlund with 13 minutes left in the third period.
 
Granlund was again denied by Elliott from in close early in the overtime session.
 
The Blues have won 16 in a row against the Central Division and are now 18-0-1 in division play. They've beaten Minnesota eight straight times, outscoring the Wild 25-10.
 
The Wild are 14-6-2 since Jan. 2, but lost their second straight after a five-game winning streak.
 
Both teams played Saturday night and appeared tired at the end of the third period and in overtime.
 
NOTES: Blues F Magnus Paajarvi was a healthy scratch and was replaced by Chris Porter, who was recently recalled from AHL Chicago. ... The Wild didn't register a shot on goal until 7:02 of the first period. St. Louis didn't get a shot for the first 12 minutes of the second period. ... Minnesota's Kyle Brodziak and the Blues' Steve Ott fought 2 minutes into the game.

VIERA, Fla. (AP) -- As he warmed up in the bullpen for his second spring training start, Stephen Strasburg felt strong. Perhaps a little too strong.
 
The right-hander overcame a shaky first inning and the Washington Nationals' offense came up big again in an 11-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.
 
Strasburg walked two and gave up an RBI single to his first three batters before settling down. He went three innings, allowing two hits while throwing 28 of 48 pitches for strikes.
 
"I got some good work in," Strasburg said. "I felt too good in the bullpen and then went out there and tried to paint the first pitch on (the black) instead of starting out with a little bit bigger zone and then working off the middle of the plate.
 
"I made a good adjustment and then I didn't see any problems."
 
Anthony Rendon homered and Wilson Ramos had two hits and three RBIs for the Nationals, who have 27 runs in their last three games. Washington scored four runs in the third inning, three on infield singles.
 
Allen Craig had two of St. Louis' three hits, including an RBI single. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly gave up five runs and seven hits in 2 1-3 innings.
 
STARTING TIME
 
Cardinals: Kelly had a rough outing, but manager Mike Matheny wasn't entirely displeased.
 
"I thought he did a lot better job than what his line is going to look like," Matheny said. "It was just one of those days."
 
Nationals: Strasburg continued to work on his slider, which he is mixing in about as often as his curveball right now. He said he throws the slider to get contact, not for a strikeout.
 
"Before, I would kind of throw it easy, a little unsure," Strasburg said. "But in the `pen, it felt really good. Then I go out there and I was overthrowing it. It had a little too much movement. But then I took a step back and then I started to get some better results with it."
 
TRAINER'S ROOM
 
Cardinals: Outfield prospect Oscar Tavares made the trip to Viera, but his only action was shagging fly balls before the game. Matheny said Tavares felt tightness in his right hamstring during Saturday's game. Tavares is day to day.
 
Nationals: Manager Matt Williams said RHP Doug Fister (elbow inflammation) is feeling better, but there is still no timetable for his return. Ryan Mattheus (chest inflammation) has started a throwing program, but has not thrown off a mound yet.
 
THE OTHER CORNER
 
Ryan Zimmerman did not play for the Nationals, but he did take some grounders at first base. Williams indicated he plans to give the team's starting third baseman some time on the other side of the diamond this spring.
 
NEW ADDITION
 
The Cardinals signed 23-year-old Cuban infielder Aledmys Diaz to a four-year contract. He will report to camp Monday.
 
"He looked like a very experienced player for as young as he is," said Matheny, who attended Diaz's workout. "He was clean fielding the ball. ... The ball jumped off his bat. He looked pretty polished."
 
Matheny said Diaz would have to be evaluated by the team's medical staff before it could be determined when he will be ready to play this spring. Diaz can play shortstop or second base.
 
NATS MAKE CUTS
 
The Nationals made their first cuts of spring training Sunday morning. The team reassigned 1B-3B Matt Skole, C Jeff Howell, INF Josh Johnson, C Brian Jeroloman, LHP Tyler Robertson and RHP Gabriel Alfaro to minor league camp.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Antonio Barton scored 16 points and Jarnell Stokes had a double-double Saturday as Tennessee trounced Missouri 72-45 to win its fourth straight game and boost its NCAA tournament hopes.
 
Tennessee (20-11, 11-7 SEC) hasn't trailed at any point during its winning streak. Its last three games have been decided by an average margin of 31 points.
 
Barton shot 4 of 7 from 3-point range against Missouri and has now gone 13 of 22 from behind the arc over his last three games. Stokes had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Jordan McRae added 11 points.
 
Jordan Clarkson had 13 points for Missouri (21-10, 9-9).
 
Both Tennessee and Missouri are perceived to be on the NCAA tournament bubble, raising the stakes in this regular-season finale for both teams. Missouri had beaten Tennessee 75-70 on Feb. 15 in Columbia, but Saturday's rematch bore no resemblance to that game.
 
The Tigers shot 56.5 percent in their victory over Tennessee last month. Missouri shot 32 percent (15 of 47) overall and was 2 of 17 from 3-point range Saturday while recording its lowest point total of the season.
 
Missouri's Jabari Brown, who entered the day leading the SEC with 20.1 points per game, shot 1 of 10 and was held to eight points. His only basket came with 1:19 left in the game. Brown scored 24 points against Tennessee last month.
 
Tennessee grabbed a 37-19 halftime lead by crushing Missouri on the boards and from 3-point range.
 
At the start of the day, Tennessee was second in the SEC and Missouri third in rebound margin. But their matchup Saturday turned into a mismatch. In the first half, Stokes nearly outrebounded Missouri by himself. Stokes had 11 boards in the first half to give Tennessee a 23-12 rebounding edge. Tennessee ended up outrebounding Missouri 45-28.
 
Tennessee also shot 6 of 16 from 3-point range in the first half while Missouri was just 1 of 6. Tennessee got some long-range contributions from unlikely sources. Armani Moore, who entered the day 8 of 32 from 3-point range in his college career, made both his first-half attempts from behind the arc. The Vols cooled off from long range in the second half — going 1 of 8 — but the game already was pretty much out of reach by then.
 
While Tennessee was on fire early, Missouri had nearly had as many first-half turnovers (six) as baskets (seven).
 
Missouri briefly threatened to make a game of it early in the second half.
 
McRae picked up his third foul on a Ryan Rosburg three-point play that cut Tennessee's lead to 39-25 with 17:25 left. With McRae on the bench in foul trouble and plenty of time remaining, Missouri had a chance to rally.
 
Tennessee instead responded with a 10-0 run to put the game away. The Vols' lead never dipped below 22 points the rest of the way as they delighted the partisan crowd with five second-half dunks, including a reverse jam from McRae that resulted in a three-point play with 3:58 remaining.

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Trevor Rosenthal had a pain-free spring training debut and Michael Wacha pitched three effective innings for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 4-4 tie with a Washington Nationals split squad that was called after 10 innings Saturday.
 
Groin pain prompted the Cardinals to sideline Rosenthal for a few days this spring, but that wasn't a problem Saturday. The hard-throwing closer said he's nearly in regular-season form following his first Grapefruit League appearance.
 
Wacha worked two perfect innings before allowing a run on two hits and a walk in the third.
 
Destin Hood's three-run homer gave the Nationals a 4-1 lead in the eighth. St. Louis tied it with three in the bottom half, including Greg Garcia's two-run single.

DENVER (AP) -- Ryan Miller stopped 26 shots, and David Backes broke up a scoreless game in the second period, helping the St. Louis Blues beat the surging Colorado Avalanche 2-1 Saturday in a Central Division showdown.
 
Patrik Berglund added a pivotal insurance goal early in the third period as the Blues won their fourth straight.
 
Colorado finally solved Miller midway through the final period when P.A. Parenteau lifted a shot over him while he was trying for his first shutout in nearly two years. Miller is 4-0 since being acquired from Buffalo.
 
Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon had his point streak snapped at 13 games. It is the NHL's longest streak by an 18-year-old player.
 
Miller withstood a furious rally by the Avalanche in the final two minutes after they pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov.
 
The division-leading Blues are five points ahead of Colorado.
 
St. Louis also improved to a league-best 17-0-1 in division games. The Blues have outscored the Avs 13-5 in taking all three games in the season series. The teams will meet again on April 5 in St. Louis.
 
This was a frustrating afternoon for the Avalanche as their four-game winning streak was halted. Early on, they couldn't sneak anything past Miller, even hitting the post twice. They also lost one of their top offensive players when Paul Stastny went out with a back injury after his opening shift.
 
Berglund gave St. Louis a 2-0 cushion at 3:53 of the final period when he gobbled up the puck down low, spun and lined it over the glove of Varlamov.
 
Moments later, Parenteau beat Miller after receiving a pass from Matt Duchene.
 
With 6:05 remaining, Gabriel Landeskog had a chance to tie it after getting loose in front, but Miller rose up to stop it.
 
St. Louis made it 1-0 at 7:03 of the second period on a play set up by a long pass from defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, who has thrived against his former team since he was traded three years ago.
 
Deep in his own end, Shattenkirk sent a pass to T.J. Oshie, who, as he was falling down, slid the puck to Backes. From there, Backes guided the puck past Varlamov's left skate.
 
Shattenkirk has four goals and five assists in 12 games against Colorado.
 
Both teams had a failed power play in the first period and eight shots. Miller had the save of the period when he stopped a point-blank shot from Parenteau with his left shoulder.
 
At one point, Colorado's Patrick Bordeleau made his way back to the bench following a big hit, and was pushed by Barret Jackman, then by Ryan Reaves and finally by Maxim Lapierre in a comical scene.
 
NOTES: Blues coach Ken Hitchcock tied Ron Wilson for seventh place on the NHL career wins list with 648. ... Miller has stopped 84 of 90 shots since his arrival in St. Louis. ... Colorado had 13 of its 27 shots in the final period.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Ian Cole had a goal and an assist to lead the St. Louis Blues to their third straight win, 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
 
Magnus Paajarvi had the other goal for the Blues, who have won all four of their games against Nashville this season.
 
Ryan Miller stopped 20 shots to win his third game in as many starts since being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Nick Spaling scored for the Predators, losers of six of seven.
 
Cole scored the game's first goal at 4:03 of the opening period after Steve Ott won a faceoff in the left circle and Cole beat Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot high to the far side.
 
Ott's assist was his first point as a Blue.
 
Nashville drew even at 10:28 of the first on Spaling's 11th goal of the season.
 
From the right half boards, Patric Hornqvist sent a pass in front, where Spaling tipped the puck high over Miller's right shoulder.
 
St. Louis regained the lead at 8:18 of the second on Paajarvi's sixth of the season.
 
Paajarvi took a pass from Roman Polak in the neutral zone and then skated into the Nashville zone on the right side, where he cut into the right faceoff circle and beat Rinne with a quick wrist shot.
 
Alexander Steen was awarded a penalty shot at 15:27 of the second period after being fouled from behind on a breakaway, but Rinne gloved down Steen's wrist shot from the right side.
 
Steen has converted one of two penalty shot attempts this season, while Rinne has turned aside the two that he has faced.
 
NOTES: Hornqvist's assist was the 100th of his career. . Nashville C Mike Fisher has points in five consecutive games, equaling a season high. . The Blues are 34-1-4 when scoring first this season
