Ducks rally to eliminate Stars

DALLAS — Nick Bonino helped the Ducks tie it late then scored 2:47 into overtime as they beat the Stars 5-4 and won the West quarterfinal in six games Sunday. Anaheim next faces the Kings or Sharks.

Down 4-2, the Ducks pulled goalie Jonas Hiller with about three minutes left. Bonino came from behind the net and got a puck over Kari Lehtonen's left shoulder to make it 4-3 with 2:10 left.

Then the puck trickled free from a goal-mouth scramble, and Devante Smith-Pelly put it in with 25.9 seconds left.

In OT, Bonino converted an Andrew Cogliano centering feed.

Champs oust Blues

CHICAGO — The Blackhawks used a four-goal third to beat the Blues 5-1 and win the West quarterfinal in six games.

The defending Cup champs next play the Wild or Avs.

For the second straight season, the Blues won the first two games of a first-round series at home but lost the next four. Last season, the Kings rallied. This season, it came after the Blues lost their final six regular-season games to fall into second place in the Central.

"It was one play here, one play there," captain David Backes said. "It was on our stick, and we needed to get the job done. We didn't get it done, and we're going home too early."

Rangers hold on

NEW YORK — Brad Richards and Dominic Moore scored second-period goals as the Rangers beat the Flyers 4-2 to take a 3-2 lead in the East quarterfinal.

Down 3-0, the Flyers got Vinny Lecavalier's goal with 32.6 seconds left in the second.

"It is really frustrating … when you give up a goal like that late in the period," New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist said. "It was about letting it go and being focused on the right things going into the third."
