Bonino collected a third-period, game-winning goal Thursday against the Capitals. Bonino continues to raise his game in the postseason. Dating back to 2012-13 with Anaheim, the center has netted six playoff game-winners (including three in overtime) in 56 contests. The centerman has two goals in six playoff games after totaling 18 points in 24 postseason contests last spring.
Bonino potted a power-play goal to go with two assists in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils. The goal was just icing late in a game that the Pens had under control, but it really rounded out a huge game for Bonino, who led all Penguins forwards in ice time. He'd recorded just one point in the past six games despite filling in for Evgeni Malkin on the second line, but this game brought back memories of how hot Bonino got at the end of last season.
Bonino netted his 16th goal of the season, a power-play effort, in a 2-1 shootout loss to Ottawa on Thursday. He continues to rake with seven goals in his last nine contests. Bonino, who registered a season-high six shots Thursday, saw the fourth-most minutes (19:00) among Pittsburgh forwards. He had a tough night in the faceoff circle, losing 12 of 18 draws, but otherwise excelled against the Sens.
Bonino registered his 15th goal of the season against Buffalo on Tuesday. The game-winning goal was Bonino's first in 141 regular-season tilts dating back to March 30, 2015, when he played for Vancouver. He now has six goals and two assists in 11 contests this month. Given Pittsburgh's rash of injuries, Bonino's surge couldn't come at a better time for the depleted roster.
Bonino posted a goal with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 3-2 win against the Oilers. Bonino has come alive with four goals, six points and a plus-2 rating during his four-game point streak. He continues to see plenty of time on the power play and has emerged as a decent addition off the waiver wire in deeper fantasy pools.
