Nichushkin lifts Avalanche past Maple Leafs 3-1

TORONTO (AP) The Colorado Avalanche kept Toronto at bay and got some timely scoring to beat the struggling Maple Leafs.

Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and an assist, Valeri Nichushkin and Joonas Donskoi also scored, and Philipp Grubauer stopped 38 shots to help the Avalanche beat the Maple Leafs 3-1 Wednesday night.

"One of the most complete games we've played," said Grubauer, who was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots against the Maple Leafs in Colorado on Nov. 23. "We protected the middle."
