Looking back: The New Captain Clutch
A couple of Anaheim Ducks fan sites have hung the title of “Captain Clutch” on Nick Bonino, after his overtime winner in game six of the Ducks-Stars series—following his goal late in the third period that helped Anaheim rally from a two-goal deficit.  It’s a nickname that had been earned by another former BU captain and Connecticut native, Chris Drury, for his penchant for scoring key goals in Stanley Cup playoff games.  Drury, who is BU’s all-time goal scoring leader with 113, racked up 47 playoff goals,including 17 game-winners, so Bonino has a ways to go emulate those numbers. But he’s off to a good start.  The Ducks have won seven playoff games in the past two seasons and Bonino has three GWGs, two of them in overtime.

Earlier this month Bonino's no-look goal from his knees, beating his former Avon Old Farms teammate Jonathan Quick, was a highlight reel sensation. (Video)
