Teemu Selanne and Mathieu Perreault assisted on both goals by linemate Silfverberg, who had the second two-goal game of his career. He has scored four goals in his first four games with the team. Dustin Penner and Daniel Winnik each added a goal and an assist.

New York has been outscored 20-6 to start their first season under new coach Alain Vigneault.

The Ducks outshot the Rangers 37-34 for their third win in a row in the teams' first meeting in nearly two years.

Playing without injured All-Star forward Rick Nash, the Rangers fell to 1-3 on their nine-game trip, the longest to open a season in franchise history.
