Werenski is good to go for Blue Jackets

The Pittsburgh Penguins are ready to defend their title as they face Columbus Blue Jackets in the First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Zach Werenski is good to go for the Columbus Blue Jackets. He’ll play tonight in Pittsburgh, where the Jackets and Penguins will face off in Game 1 of their first-round series.

Werenski, the impressive rookie defenseman, missed the last four games of the regular season with a shoulder injury after getting hit by Alex Ovechkin on April 2.
