Perreault, Corey Perry and Nick Bonino scored power-play goals for the NHL-leading Ducks, who improved to 18-0-2 at home.

Andrew Cogliano scored short-handed during the Ducks’ three-goal second period. Teemu Selanne added two assists in Anaheim’s eighth consecutive win at Honda Center, matching its 8-0 streak to open the season.

Daniel Paille and Dougie Hamilton scored for the Bruins, who played without forward Milan Lucic for the first time this season due to an illness.

Tuukka Rask stopped 15 shots, but the Atlantic Division leaders couldn’t overcome their special-teams woes in the opener of a three-game California road trip.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia • Sidney Crosby tied the score with 55 seconds left in regulation and added the only goal in a shootout to rally Pittsburgh past slumping Vancouver.

Evgeni Malkin and Brian Gibbons also scored for the Penguins. Jussi Jokinen added two assists, and Crosby had one of his own. Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves for the win.

Chris Higgins, Zack Kassian and Christopher Tanev each had a goal and an assist for Vancouver, which lost its fifth in a row. Jason Garrison also scored and Eddie Lack made 31 saves.

Vancouver appeared to be on its way to a victory when Higgins beat Fleury through the legs on a breakaway with 6:53 left in regulation and Kassian batted down a puck off the rush and swatted it past the goalie 17 seconds later.

WILD 2, KINGS 1, SO

LOS ANGELES • Nino Niederreiter scored the tying goal early in the third period and netted the only goal in a four-round shootout to lead Minnesota over Los Angeles.

The Wild, playing their first game since leading scorer Mikko Koivu broke his ankle Saturday at Washington, have won three straight for the first time since Nov. 1-5.

Koivu underwent surgery Monday and is expected to miss at least four weeks.

Minor league call-up Darcy Kuemper made 17 of his 39 saves during the first period in his third appearance this season and fifth NHL start.

Jarret Stoll scored for the Kings, and Jonathan Quick made 16 saves in his second straight start after missing 24 games because of a groin injury.
