— 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.

Abdelkader appeared to catch Lydman square in the side of the head with his left shoulder, and he was given a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct with 4:49 remaining in the second.

The Ducks immediately took advantage when Bonino backhanded a shot past goalie Jimmy Howard from point-blank range.

Ryan Getzlaf, Emerson Etem and Matt Beleskey scored in the third period for the Ducks.


At Boston, Joffrey Lupul scored two goals, and Toronto evened its first-round series.

Nathan Horton gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead at 1:56 of the second period, but Lupul scored at 5:18 on a power play and at 11:56 with the teams at even strength.

Phil Kessel made it 3-1 on a breakaway 53 seconds into the third period.


At Washington, Mike Green scored eight minutes into overtime, Braden Holtby made 24 saves for his first career playoff shutout, and Washington took a 2-0 series lead.

Green nailed a one-timer from high in the slot on a feed from Mike Ribeiro during a power play. Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh was in the penalty box for delay of game, having lifted the puck over the glass in New York’s defensive zone.

Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers.
