ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Nick Bonino scored 1:33 into overtime, and the Anaheim Ducks finished the regular season with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.

Devante Smith-Pelly controlled the puck in the slot and passed to Bonino, who wrapped up Anaheim's 54th victory with his 22nd goal.

With their playoff position secure, the Ducks used the game to honor Teemu Selanne, who plans to retire after the season. The 43-year-old Finnish Flash got standing ovations on every shift in the third period in Anaheim, his home for 15 of his 20 NHL seasons.

Selanne was honored as all three postgame stars in a no-stakes meeting of the Western Conference's two division champions. Anaheim clinched the West's top spot Saturday, while Colorado won the Central earlier Sunday when St. Louis lost.
