Nichushkin only played 7:59 TOI in game four, with 0:00 TOI in the third period as Traktor trailed 2-0 and shortened the bench; Traktor lost 3-1, but leads the series 3-1.
It was an uneventful game for him, as I only recall one 1-on-1 rush early, but the defenseman held him in check and forced him behind the net, negating any chance [
at 0:44 in this clip
]. He may have finished a check or two, but otherwise, his game was relatively quiet and failed to register a SOG. His minus was the result of a stretch pass that allowed Kalinin to get behind their defense and score the opener; nothing to fault him for there.
