Ducks top Stars in OT to advance

Dallas, TX ( - The Anaheim Ducks made sure history didn't repeat itself.

Facing the prospect of a Game 7 on their home ice for a second straight year, the Western Conference's top seed staged a furious third-period push.

Nick Bonino ignited the rally and supplied the game-winner in overtime, as the Ducks eliminated the Dallas Stars with a 5-4 win in Game 6 of their first- round series.

Anaheim was in a similar position a year ago, with a chance to finish off the Detroit Red Wings in a West quarterfinal. The Ducks lost Game 6 on the road in overtime before dropping Game 7 when a longer postseason run was expected.
