Silfverberg scores 2 goals, Hiller earns 17th career shutout as Ducks rout Rangers 6-0

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Jakob Silfverberg scored twice, Jonas Hiller made 34 saves for his 17th NHL shutout, and Anaheim routed the New York Rangers 6-0 Thursday night in the home opener of the Ducks' 20th season.

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.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
