05/09/2013 01:19 Ducks seize 3-2 lead on Bonino's overtime goal
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.
Niklas Kronwall will enter the 2012-13 season as the Wings' top blueliner following the retirement of Nicklas Lidstrom this summer. It's unclear who will skate in Kronwall's pairing, but he should have a larger role on the power play and see the heaviest share of minutes that he's been given in his entire career. Kronwall potted a career-high 15 goals while piling up 36 points over 82 games for the Wings last season, and might be in position to reach the 50-point threshold for the second time as an NHL player with the perfect storm of opportunity and health.
