Big Valeri Nichushkin goes coast to coast

Valeri Nichushkin scored his league-leading sixth goal of the year during Colorado's 3-2 victory over the hosting Las Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday. He provided a goal, six shots and two hits.

Fantasy Impact:

Nichushkin gained some steam coming out of his own zone and threw down a couple of quick dekes to dodge the defenders. He drove to the middle and snuck one past the glove of Logan Thompson. Him and Mackinnon accounted for 13 of the 25 shots on goal in the game. He's looking darn good playing on the top line right now with six goals and 12 points through six GP.
