ANAHEIM, Calif., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Corey Perry scored with 0.6 seconds left in overtime Sunday, capping an Anaheim rally that carried the Ducks over Vancouver 4-3.

Anaheim erased an early 2-0 deficit on second-period goals from Saku Koivu and Matt Beleskey, and again fell behind early in the third following a score by the Canucks' Kevin Bieksa.

But with 1:27 left in regulation, Nick Bonino fired a wrist shot that deflected off a prone Bieksa and into the top corner of the net, forging a 3-3 tie.

With time running out in overtime, the Ducks quickly cleared the puck to Ryan Getzlaf in the Canucks' zone. He fed a pass ahead to Perry, who shoveled the puck between the pads of Eddie Lack for the game-winner.

Jonas Hiller made 17 saves for Anaheim, which continued the best home start in franchise history. The Ducks improved to 17-0-2 at Honda Center and remain the only NHL team without a regulation loss on home ice.

The victory was also the Ducks' 13th in 14 games overall.

Lack finished with 45 saves for Vancouver.

Henrik Sedin notched a goal and two assists and Ryan Kesler also scored.
