Center Nick Bonino returned to practice for the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, and this was the first time he practiced since sustaining what has been termed as a severe lower-body injury about a month prior to that. Coach Bruce Boudreau stated that day that he wanted Bonino to play in a few games before the playoff start, and it sounds like Boudreau will get his wish. According to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register, Bonino will be back for the Ducks today at 8:30 p.m. ET and in the line-up to face the Edmonton Oilers, who just lost Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for the remainder of the season.
