Bonino gathered an assist, three shots and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3. Bonino has two goals and four helpers in six games since the start of April. Bonino is an experienced playoff performer, having won two Stanley Cup titles with the Penguins. However, with third-line deployment and minimal power-play time, Bonino is hard to recommend for fantasy purposes this early in the playoffs.
Bonino generated an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Stars in Game 1. Bonino ended the year hot with two straight two-point outings to give him 35 points overall in 81 appearances. Bonino has 46 points in 89 playoff appearances in his career, and he has also won the Stanley Cup twice while he was a member of the Penguins. The 30-year-old will likely be a reliable depth scorer and veteran presence for the Predators on this run.
Bonino found the scoresheet twice Thursday, scoring a goal and adding an assist in a 3-2 win over the Canucks. Bonino had gone six games without a point, but the Predators' forward found himself two points in Thursday's come-from-behind win. He's up to 33 points in 80 games and is tied for the team lead with a plus-26 rating.
Bonino picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks. The helper gives Bonino 30 points (15 goals and assists apiece) in 72 games this season. It's his fourth 30-point campaign, and the first since 2016-17, when he was with the Penguins. The center is currently on the second line, and will usually play in a middle-six capacity.
Bonino notched his 15th goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild. Bonino's goal gave the Predators the early lead, but left wing Filip Forsberg would have to provide an equalizer after the Wild struck twice in the second period. Bonino had only a single point in February, but now has 29 in 67 contests this season. The center will likely finish in the mid-to-high 30s for points if he can overcome his recent struggles.
