Werenski's OT goal lifts Blue Jackets over Blues 3-2 Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella hopes an overtime victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions will loosen up his team, which he says has been a bundle of nerves lately. “I hope a win will relax this hockey club,” Tortorella said shortly after Zach Werenski scored in overtime to help the Blue Jackets beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 Friday night. “We are one uptight .... team,” he said. “Hopefully it will help them.

And we find a way.” Columbus had killed a 4-on-3 Blues power play in the extra period and then got the man advantage.
