VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) - After suffering a rare home loss, the Vancouver Canucks will try to bounce back against the Los Angeles Kings in a matchup of 20-win teams.

The Canucks had won four straight overall and six in a row at home before dropping a 5-4 decision in overtime to Edmonton on Saturday.

Vancouver twice lost two-goal leads before seeing Oilers center Michael Peca convert the game-winner with 52 seconds to go in the extra session, sending the Canucks to just their second loss in 15 home games.

Todd Bertuzzi had a pair of goals in the losing effort.

Vancouver's league-best 13-1-1 mark at General Motors Place will be threatened by the Kings, who have won three of their last four, including Saturday's 4-1 triumph over Phoenix.

Defenseman Joe Corvo scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and Craig Conroy had a goal and two assists to back Mathieu Garon's 25-save effort.

Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky scored twice in the first period as Los Angeles built a four-goal lead and held on for a 5-4 victory in the first meeting between the teams November 17.
