Video: Ducks’ Bonino scores OT winner against Red Wings

May 9, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

Prior to Wednesday, the Detroit Red Wings had won both games that went to overtime in their Western Conference quarter-final against the Anaheim Ducks.

Nick Bonino changed that. He scored 1:54 into the first extra period and the Ducks took a 3-2 series lead over the Red Wings with a 3-2 victory on home ice. The Red Wings led twice in the game, but both times the Ducks came back, before Bonino finally decided it.

Here’s a look at the winner.

    What a surprise Bonino has been. Clutch as hell through this first round. Gives his all every night. No matter which team you’re pulling for, you have to respect that kind of jam in the playoffs.

      As a Wings fan I have to admit you’re right about Bonino. He’s become one of those players I see as very dangerous during this series. As much or more so than, say, Selane.

      Not saying he’s more skilled. After all, age has affected Selane’s ice presence a little bit. Just saying Bonino is very noticeable.

    Wings’ forecheck last night was killing the Ducks, Hiller had to make some great saves to keep them in it. It is the young guys like Bonino, Palmieri, and Etem that are energizing this team right now and the reason why they’re up 3-2 in this series. Meanwhile Corey Perry can’t buy a freakin goal right now and only has 1 point. Howard has his number. Maybe he could bust out tomorrow night and get going. Anyways, been a great series.
