ANAHEIM — J.T. Miller scored on a breakaway 26 seconds into overtime and the Vancouver Canucks won their seventh straight game under coach Bruce Boudreau, 2-1 against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Wednesday.

Boudreau is 7-0-0 since replacing Travis Green on Dec. 5.

Tanner Pearson scored, and Thatcher Demko made 22 saves for his sixth straight win for Vancouver (15-15-2), which was playing its first game since Dec. 16.

Sam Carrick scored, and John Gibson made 35 saves for the Ducks (17-9-7) in their first game since Dec. 17.

Pearson scored on a one-timer off a feed from Quinn Hughes to tie the score 1-1 at 1:21 of the third period.

The Ducks took a 1-0 lead at 16:26 of the first period. Hampus Lindholm and Nicolas Deslauriers each banked the puck off the boards to get it ahead to Carrick, who skated in and scored from in close. 

The Ducks started the game with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler collided with the corner boards with 2:55 left in the first period and did not return because of an upper-body injury.
