Patrick Laine scores in OT, Blue Jackets beat Kraken 2-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Patrick Laine scored at 2:16 of overtime to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 2-1, come-from-behind win over the expansion Seattle Kraken on Saturday night.

Eric Robinson scored, and Elvis Merzlikins stopped 19 shots for his second win for the Blue Jackets, who are off to a 2-0-0 start.

"I thought we were a lot more plugged into this game," Blue Jackets coach Brad Larsen said. "It was a grind, but structurally we were better in a couple of areas we addressed as a group. You had to fight for your ice out there."
