Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist lit up the 2016 Coors Light Stadium Series game against the Colorado Avalanche at Coors Field on Saturday when he scored on a no-look backhand in the third period.

With Detroit trailing 2-1, Nyquist took a pass from Tomas Tatar near the right faceoff circle with his back to the net and Colorado defenseman Tyson Barrie behind him. Instead of turning to face the net, Nyquist flipped a backhand shot over the Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov's left shoulder at 1:27 of the third. Detroit won 5-3.
