The Ducks' ability to time their goals dramatically Sunday allowed them to extend their unbeaten-in-regulation home winning streak and beat the Vancouver Canucks. "Those things are what character teams are made of," forward Corey Perry said after slipping a shot under goalie Eddie Lack with 1.3 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Ducks a 4-3 victory. Overtime happened only because center Nick Bonino blasted a tying shot off a sprawled Canucks defenseman past Lack with 87 seconds remaining in regulation.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Anyone who saw John Tortorella's testy, 20-second news conferences when he coached the New York Rangers might have been shocked Monday when he conducted a cordial 20-minute session before the Canucks' morning skate at Rogers Arena. Tortorella scored a few mild jabs when asked about the lineup - a subject he has established as a no-go - but he was personable and thoughtful, as he has been since he was hired to coach the Canucks last summer. It's a deliberate difference from his rudeness in New York.

This post has been updated. See below for details. VANCOUVER, Canada -- Greetings from Vancouver, where it's chilly but sunny. The big news from the Kings' morning skate at Rogers Arena was that they planned to activate forward Jeff Carter off injured reserve before Monday night's game against the Canucks, and they will have Carter skate in the warmups with 12 other forwards. If all goes well, Carter -- who has been out of the lineup because of a foot injury -- would play for the first time since Oct. 30. Carter had five goals and nine points in 14 games before he was injured.

When the Kings meet the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday at Staples Center, it will be the team's sixth look at a Pacific Division opponent in eight games. And so far Coach Darryl Sutter isn't sure he likes what he sees. "The division's tough, and every team's good," he said. "And we're trying to hang in there. " The Kings are fifth in the division, but with 20 points they have a better record than all but four teams in the Eastern Conference. "It is what it is," he said.

+ A key to the early success of the Phoenix Coyotes (10-3-2) is the production they are getting from their defense. Oliver Ekman-Larsson (three goals, 11 points), Keith Yandle (1-10 - 11) and Derek Morris (4-6 - 10) ranked 4-5-6 in defensemen scoring through Sunday's games. + Welcome back Manny Malhotra, who returned to the NHL last Friday with the Carolina Hurricanes. The classy forward suffered a devastating eye injury in 2011 while with the Vancouver Canucks; fearing his impaired vision jeopardized his safety, they played him in only nine games last season and didn't re-sign him. He won 15 of 20 faceoffs in his first game back and 10 of 14 in his second.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + If Sidney Crosby can be said to do anything quietly, he is quietly having a sensational start. Through Sunday he led the NHL in scoring with 17 points, including at least one point in all eight games the Penguins had played. That's a personal best to start a season for Crosby. + St. Louis forward David Backes scored six goals in the Blues' first seven games, matching his total in last season's 48-game schedule.
