Valeri Nichushkin netted a pair of goals in Colorado's 6-3 road-loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night. He also had a plus-1 rating, five shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact:

Nichushkin opened the scoring in the game when the Avalanche broke in on a 3-on-1 and took a one-time pass from Bowen Byram and made no mistake blasting it through Mike Smith. His second goal found him set up from the slot with a clear line at the net. He wristed it low, away and over the goal line. He is up to 24 goals on the year. He is on a six game point streak registering eight in that span.
