The 36-year old Bouwmeeste­r suf­fered a car­diac episode dur­ing the first pe­riod of Tues­day night’s game against the Ana­heim

“He is do­ing very well and is cur­rently un­der­go­ing a bat­tery of tests. Things are look­ing very pos­i­tive,” Arm­strong said.

Pi­etrangelo — who was one of the first to call for help af­ter Bouwmeeste­r slumped over with 7:50 left in the first pe­riod — said he vis­ited Bouwmeeste­r in the hospi­tal Tues­day night and the rest of team got to see him via Face­Time af­ter the game was can­celed.
