Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Nick Bonino buried the game winner 1:54 into
overtime, as the Anaheim Ducks downed the Detroit Red Wings, 3-2, in Game 5 of
this Western Conference quarterfinal series from Honda Center.
Ben Lovejoy set up Bonino's deciding goal, as the Anaheim defenseman carried
the puck below the Detroit goal line and worked around a defender before
sliding a backhand pass through the crease to the low left side, where Bonino
pounded in a one-timer to give Anaheim a 3-2 series lead.
Ryan Getzlaf and Kyle Palmieri each scored once in regulation, while Jonas
Hiller posted 29 saves for the Ducks, who will look to wrap up the series in
Detroit on Friday.
Mikael Samuelsson and Johan Franzen registered a goal apiece in the setback,
with Jimmy Howard stopping 31-of-34 shots for Detroit, which had won the
previous two overtime games in this series.
