Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim on a second-period power play -- 18 seconds after Detroit's Justin Abdelkader was ejected for a violent hit on Toni Lydman -- and the Ducks went on to a 4-0 victory Saturday night to take a 2-1 series lead over the Red Wings in the Western Conference playoffs.
Emerson Etem is one of the Ducks' top prospects. He exploded last season with 107 points (61 goals) in 65 games for the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL. He was the first guy to score more than 60 in that league in 11 years and he came oh-so-close to scoring at a goal-a-game pace. He is a sprinter on ice with a sniper's mentality and he profiles as a top-line winger. The only knock on him -- and he is getting better -- comes from his roller hockey roots. He still occasionally lapses into the sweeping turns associated with that no-stop league and forgets that the game on the ice is exclusively stop-start. In juniors, his speed got him back into the play after one of those swathing machine turns, but he won't get away with it in the pros. He'll knock on the door in 2012-13 and maybe even get a cup of coffee with the Ducks. He should vie for a full-time gig in 2013-14. (Updated 8/14/12)
