Last night in Dallas, Devante Smith-Pelly (21 years and 317 days) became the youngest Ducks player to record a multi-goal game in the postseason (previously Bobby Ryan, 22 years and 37 days; two goals on Apr. 23, 2009 vs. SJ).
Jonas Hiller became the first goalie in Ducks history to win a playoff game in relief (stopped 12-of-12 shots).
Last night marked just the third time in franchise history where two Ducks players had multi-goal performances in a single playoff game (the aforementioned Smith-Pelly and Bonino). The feat was previously accomplished by Joffrey Lupul/Dustin Penner, May 25, 2006 @ EDM (6-3 win), and Paul Kariya/Teemu Selanne, Apr. 16, 1997 vs. PHX (4-2 win).
The Ducks became the fifth NHL team since 1977 to rally from a multiple-goal deficit in the final 2:10 of regulation to win a playoff game. The previous four instances: BOS vs. TOR, 5/13/13 (BOS won 5-4 OT, 1:22 remaining when rally started), DAL @ EDM, 4/15/01 (DAL won 3-2 OT, 1:03 remaining), QUE vs. MTL, 4/18/93 (QUE won 3-2 OT, 1:19 remaining), PHI @ TOR, 4/17/77 (PHI won 6-5 OT, 1:49 remaining).*
