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-behind 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 defenseman Kevin Bieksa scored in the third for the Canucks. Rookie Eddie Lack made a career-high 45 saves.

Sharks 3, Blackhawks 2, SO: In Chicago, Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored in a shootout, and the San Jose Sharks won in Chicago for the first time in three years.

Alex Stalock made 33 saves through overtime as San Jose bounced back from a 4-3 loss at Colorado on Saturday. Jason Demers scored in the first period and Brett Burns had a tying goal in the third.

Oilers 5, Lightning 3: In Edmonton, Alberta, Jordan Eberle scored two goals, and the Edmonton Oilers snapped a four-game losing streak.

Taylor Hall, Luke Gazdic, and Boyd Gordon also scored for the Oilers (14-26-5), who have won three of 13. Edmonton avoided its fourth five-game losing streak of the season.

Hurricanes 2, Predators 1: In Raleigh, N.C., Alexander Semin and Jeff Skinner scored and Anton Khudobin made 31 saves to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to their season-high fourth straight win.

Patric Hornqvist tied it for Nashville with a power-play goal at 6:46 of the third period when he tipped in the puck at the right post for his ninth goal. But the Predators, who had earned points in four straight games, dropped their third in a row.

Penguins 6, Jets 5: In Pittsburgh, Evgeni Malkin scored twice in his return from injury and James Neal added two more for Pittsburgh, which matched a club record by winning its 12th straight home game. Jussi Jokinen picked up his third goal in two games and Matt Niskanen put in the winner with less than 8 minutes left.
