DALLAS -- Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was certainly trying to remain optimistic, even if he didnt expect such a dramatic comeback. "I wasnt confident at all," Boudreau admitted. "Youre always hopeful. ... But deep down, you dont really think its going to happen." Well, it did. And the Ducks are moving on in the playoffs. The Ducks scored twice in the final 2:10 of regulation, and then Nick Bonino scored in overtime for a 5-4 series-clinching victory over the Dallas Stars in Game 6 on Sunday night. "Its still hard to believe. Ive got butterflies in my stomach," said Bonino, who also scored one of those late regulation goals. "Scoring the winning goal in a playoff series is something you play in your driveway when youre a kid." Bonino got the game-winner on a wrist shot from in front of the net 2:47 into overtime after getting a pass from Andrew Cogliano, and made sure the Ducks didnt need a Game 7 to advance in the playoffs for only the second time since winning their lone Stanley Cup title seven years ago. "Weve done it all year. We had games when we clawed back, especially in the third period," Cogliano said. "Thats what the playoffs are all about, to keep clawing." The home team won in each of the first five games, but the Ducks wanted to take advantage of the first opportunity they had to end the series. Anaheim also led its opening-round series 3-2 last year. But the Ducks then lost twice to Detroit, including Game 7 at home. Trevor Daley scored twice on breakaways for the Stars, , the first goal coming after he got the puck charging out of the penalty box. Daley, who also had an assist, is the only current player that was also on their last playoff team in 2008 for the Stars, who came so close to a deciding Game 7 in their first season under coach Lindy Ruff. "Sometimes hockeys cruel," Ruff said. "It was cruel, really cruel, to a group of guys that worked as hard as they possibly could tonight. There wasnt one guy that was a passenger." Bonino skated around the from behind the net and got a puck over Kari Lehtonens left shoulder to get the Ducks within 4-3 with 2:10 left in regulation. "After they got the first one, we were just kind of on our heels too much," Stars forward Ryan Garbutt said. 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. I was just standing outside the net, and guys were whacking at it," Smith-Pelly said. "You do what youve got to do to score. Not every goal is going to be tic-tac-toe." Corey Perry had the primary assists on both third-period goals for the Ducks, who will have to wait to see if they play San Jose or Los Angeles in the second round. Teemu Selanne assisted on the first two Anaheim goals, by Smith-Pelly and Ben Lovejoy. Ducks veteran goalie Jonas Hiller stopped all 12 shots he faced after replacing rookie Frederik Andersen midway through the second period after Daleys second breakaway put Dallas up 4-2. He stopped only eight shots. "This was a little more special for me. It was a great feeling," said Hiller, who won 29 games during Anaheims best regular season ever. "I thought I had a couple of good stops right when I came in, and that gave me confidence. When you get the chance, you get so much adrenaline going." Cody Eakin had a goal and an assist for Dallas, while Lehtonen stopped 25 shots. Dallas went ahead only 5 minutes into the game when Daley came out of the penalty box and skated toward the Anaheim net. After having to get around a referee to get to the puck pushed ahead by Shawn Horcoff, Daley scored. Eakin scored a power-play goal five minutes later, a one-timer on a pass from Tyler Seguin to make it 2-0. Smith-Pelly had a power-play goal with about 2 minutes left in the first period. But Garbutt scored a minute later. Garbutt got a major penalty for spearing Perry and a game misconduct midway through the first period of the Ducks 6-2 win in Game 5 on Friday night. He was fined by the NHL but not suspended. Notes: Daley had only two goals in his first 34 career playoff games. ... The last time the Stars scored at least three goals in a period in a post-season game was on April 27, 2008, with four in the third period of a 5-2 win over San Jose in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. ... Selanne (43 years and 207 days) became the second oldest player to record a multi-assist game in the playoffs. Chris Chelios of Detroit had two assists in the 2007 playoffs at 45 years and 102 days. ... Selanne has 66 career playoff points for Anaheim, matching captain Ryan Getzlaf for the most in franchise history. Getzlaf had a goal and two assists in Game 5. Cheap NHL Jerseys
