John Tortorella Impressed By Zach Werenski’s OT Goal

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers,

Tortorella marveled at how Werenski pushed through in a game that was, at times a struggle. It's easy for young players -- especially defensman -- to get down when the game tries to humble them.
He also marveled at Werenski's game-winner.

“I’d like to see how many players in this league could get it backhand to forehand in the net as quickly as he did on that goal,” Tortorella said. "There are some great young players in this game, and you hear their names all the time. We have a defenseman. To me, that's a key position in our game. To have a kid like that, who I thought struggled at times tonight, but he makes a huge play right there."
