NHL Game Summary - Vancouver at Anaheim



(Sunday, January 5th)

Final Score: Anaheim 4, Vancouver 3 (OT)

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Corey Perry lit the lamp with less than a second remaining in overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks from Honda Center.

The Ducks trailed 3-2 late in the third period, but Nick Bonino forced the extra session with his 12th goal of the season at 18:33.

After nearly four minutes of scoreless OT, Bonino stripped the puck, skated in alone and was hooked by Kevin Bieksa for a penalty. Anaheim appeared to have squandered the 4-on-3 advantage, but Ryan Getzlaf shuffled the puck to Perry near the left slot, and the Ducks' leading scorer on the season beat Eddie Lack with 0.6 ticks showing on the clock.

"I knew there wasn't much time left, coming into the zone. I saw a couple seconds on the clock, and just yelled for the puck," said Perry. "I knew I would shoot it right away. It wasn't hard, but it probably fooled him more than anything. It found a way in. Of all the places I shot tonight, a trickler is the one that goes in."

The Ducks remained the only team without a loss at home this season, improving to 17-0-2.

Saku Koivu and Matt Belesky also scored in the triumph, as Anaheim won for the 13th time in 14 games overall. Jonas Hiller made 17 saves to earn the victory.

Henrik Sedin recorded a goal and two assists, while Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa scored for Vancouver. Lack made 45 saves in the setback.

Kesler and Sedin scored power-play goals 2:01 apart midway through the first period to spot the visitors a two-goal edge.

Koive cut into the deficit 24 seconds into the second when he deflected a shot by Jakob Silfverberg. Late in the period, Kyle Palmeiri skated down the left side and flipped a backhand to Beleskey, who batted it past Lack to knot it at 2-apiece.

The Canucks went back in front 1:06 into the third on Bieksa's deflection.

"We've beaten ourselves a little bit. We've had a lot of struggles in a lot of different areas the past couple of games. We have to keep our heads and keep on working at our game," said Canucks coach John Tortorella.
