Nick Bonino gets early OT goal, Ducks move to brink of 2nd round with 3-2 win over Wings

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Nick Bonino scored 1:54 into overtime, and the Anaheim Ducks moved to the brink of the second round with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Defenceman Ben Lovejoy took the puck behind the Detroit net and fed it in front. Bonino scored for the Ducks, who took a 3-2 series lead.

Game 6 is Friday night at Joe Louis Arena, where the Ducks will attempt to close out just their second playoff series victory since winning the Stanley Cup in 2007.

Johan Franzen and Mikael Samuelsson scored for the Red Wings, who had two brief leads. Jimmy Howard stopped 31 shots.

Captain Ryan Getzlaf tied it, Kyle Palmieri also scored, and Jonas Hiller made 29 saves in Anaheim's first victory in three overtime games in the series.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
