ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry scored his league-leading eighth game-winning goal of the season with 0.6 seconds on the clock in overtime, giving the Anaheim Ducks a come-from-brhind 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

The Ducks, off to a franchise-best 31-8-5 start and 17-0-2 at Honda Center, are the only team in the league without a regulation loss at home. Anaheim is also the third NHL team to open a season with a home point streak of 19 or more games, joining San Jose (2008-09) and Philadelphia (1979-80).

Nick Bonino got the tying goal with 1:27 left in the third period. Saku Koivu and Matt Beleskey scored in the second and Jonas Hiller stopped 17 shots.

Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin scored power play goals 2 minutes apart in the first and defenceman Kevin Bieksa scored in the third for the Canucks. Rookie Eddie Lack made a career-high 45 saves.
