Anaheim Ducks get even late, beat Stars 5-4 in OT to clinch series in Game 6

DALLAS - Nick Bonino scored 2:47 into overtime, after getting one of Anaheim's two goals late in regulation, and the Ducks beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 in Game 6 on Sunday night to clinch the first-round series.

The Ducks scored twice in the final 2:10 of regulation to force overtime for the first time in the series.

In OT, Bonino skated around the from behind the net and got a puck over Kari Lehtonen's left shoulder to get the Ducks within 4-3.

Anaheim got the overtime-forcing goal with 24 seconds left after a wild scramble in front of the net with an extra skater and Lehtonen without his stick.

When the puck trickled free, Devante Smith-Pelly pushed into the open gap for his second goal of the game for a 4-4 tie.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
