Coaches always tell players on the bench during games to watch tendencies in players and it’ll help out in clutch situations.

In the Blue Jackets game against the Florida Panthers, it would benefit rookie winger Maksim Mayorov in the shootout.
Earlier in the game, Mayorov saw teammate Scottie Upshaw beat Florida goaltender Scott Clemmensen high to the glove side in the first period and put it in his memory for future use.
In the second-round of the shootout, Mayorov became a surprise shooter. He fired a quick, deceptive wrist shot past Clemmensen for the only goal in the shootout and the Blue Jackets stopped a couple of streaks in its 3-2 win. Six consecutive shootout losses and six losses in a row at home were put to rest.
The Three Stars of the Game include: Maksim Mayorov, LW Columbus; Fedor Tyutin, Defenseman Columbus, played 28:27 and had a plus-2 rating; Steve Mason, Goalie Columbus, had 29 saves and did not give up any points in the shootout.
