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. Jonas Hiller made 23 saves for Anaheim.
