COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Once the Columbus Blue Jackets built some momentum, they rallied past the Washington Capitals for another home win. Shake Milton Jersey .Nineteen-year-old rookie Zach Werensky tied the game late in the third and Cam Atkinson scored 37 seconds into overtime to give Columbus a 2-1 victory over Washington on Tuesday night for the Blue Jackets sixth straight win at home.Atkinson buried a wrister off a face-off from the right circle past Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer to win it.Werenski scored the tying goal with just under seven minutes remaining, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 26 shots.I think for us its just staying patient, Werenski said. Thats what we did tonight, capitalizing on our chances when we had them. It was huge.Nicklas Backstrom scored late in the second period for Washington, and Grubauer finished with 20 saves.I thought in the first two periods we played a real good road game against a team thats been quite hot in this building, Washington coach Barry Trotz said.The Blue Jackets started slow, struggling to penetrate Washingtons defense and getting off just 12 shots in the first two periods.We kept our patience when we were down, didnt open up, Columbus coach John Tortorella said. Its a really good win for our team to win a game that way.Backstrom scored his second goal of the season when he skated through traffic and shot from the right circle past Bobrovskys glove side with 4:17 left in the second.The Blue Jackets tied it with 6:58 left in the third when Werenski rocketed a wrist shot off the post and past Grubauer.Scoring opportunities were rare for both teams in the opening period, although Columbus missed some passes early on that could have put them in productive situations. Washington got off six shots in the period, and Columbus had just five as the Blue Jackets blocked seven Capitals shots.The Blue Jackets got some good looks and a couple promising shots on the back end of a power play at the beginning of the third period, but Grubauer held firm. Players said those on-target shots helped build momentum in the period, even if they didnt produce a goal.I think in the third period we had a lot of chances, four or five shots that could have gone in but their goalie made good saves, Werenski said. I think it really gave us a lift.Game notes A third-period goal by Backstrom was erased after video replay determined T.J. Oshie was offside bringing the puck down. ... Washingtons Alex Ovechkin hasnt had a point in the past four games. ... D Scott Harrington was on the Blue Jackets bench for the first time this season. Hes been a healthy scratch in the past 13 games. ... D Dalton Prout was a late scratch with an upper-body injury for Columbus. RW Brett Connolly and D Nate Schmidt were healthy scratches for Washington. ... The Blue Jackets are dropping morning practices on game days on a trial basis.

PAUL, Minn.Former Rangers player and manager Graeme Souness believes the clubs return to the Scottish Premiership will offer a boost to the whole of Scottish football. The Gers defeated Dumbarton 1-0 on Tuesday night to secure their return to the top-flight after they were demoted to the fourth-tier in 2012.Rangers and rivals Celtic go head-to-head in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup on April 17 - live on Sky Sports -  but the fixture will once again be a regular occurrence from next season, something Souness feels can only benefit the domestic game. Graeme Souness says its great news Rangers have been promoted back to the Scottish Premiership No one can argue its not been bad for Scottish football for Rangers not to be in the Premier League, said Sky Sports football expert and columnist Souness.If the shoe had been on the other foot, I am sure Rangers supporters would have celebrated Celtic having the same problems.But thats the short-term outlook because Celtic, since Rangers went down, have not really had a challenge. Rangers fans talk about their delight as their team were promoted back to the Scottish Premiership Theres been a bit of a challenge from Aberdeen but its not been sustained. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Jersey. [Virgil] van Dijk, [Victor] Wanyama, [Fraser] Forster, three of Celtics better players, have gone. Do Celtic sell them if Rangers are still a challenge? No. That means the quality of football that Celtic fans are watching has diminished. Dont take my word for it, take a look at the gates at Celtic Park since Rangers have not been in the big league. Rangers Harry Forrester celebrates promotion The profile of the Premier League in Scotland has been diminished, its not as interesting to people outside of Scotland as it was when Rangers were there.Theres not the same interest from television companies and other media outlets. Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Rangers manager Mark Warburton insists his side wont become complacent following their promotion back to the Premiership As much as people have enjoyed the demise of Rangers and the damage to Rangers, they are shooting themselves in the foot and if they are thinking any differently, they are kidding themselves on.Watch Rangers v Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
