Seven games remain in the season for the Ducks and it is safe to say that they won't replicate the importance or the atmosphere of the four Stanley Cup playoff contests that Nick Bonino took part in last season.
The season figures to end for the young center once the final horn sounds in Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome on April 7. But it would be foolish to say that the remaining games won't carry any meaning.
Bonino knows he will be watched closely, as will wingers Kyle Palmieri and Devante Smith-Pelly. The seven games will be about leaving a favorable impression in the minds of the Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau and the organization's chief decision-makers.
"Someone's always watching," Bonino said. "We want to show Bruce that we're not going to quit. As far as being out of the playoffs, that (stinks). Everyone wants to be in the playoffs.

Yeah, it was only 20 minutes of a career that would be entering its 20th NHL season. And, sure, it’s not my gut that will...
I've been going full bore in my attempt to snatch up all of the Ryan Getzlaf Dominion cards I can get my grubby hands on. It was something I mentioned in a previous White Whale themed post, and 2012 has definitely been a boon in terms of adding not only to my Captain Getzlaf PC, but to the Dominion portion of it.My latest addition (that I've posted....hint hint) is this sweeeet...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Marty Turco won for the first time in the NHL in more than 13 months with the help of a disallowed goal that would have tied it, and the Boston Bruins got second-period goals from Zdeno Chara and Benoit Pouliot less than 1 12 minutes apart to beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Sunday night.
Anaheim's Matt Beleskey beat Turco to the stick side with a wrist...
