Valeri Nichushkin scored the opening and game-winning goal for Colorado in their 4-0 home win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. He finished the game with a goal, a plus-1 rating, one shot, and one block.

Fantasy Impact:

Nichushkin was driving down the side boards very early in the bout and found himself fighting off Brent Burns. He went to the net and slid one through Martin Jones five hole. He's up to eight goals and 17 points along with a very nice plus-16 rating in his first year with Colorado.
