Richards saves a point against Ducks

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers
Bobby Ryan scored the only goal in a shootout Saturday to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers.

Andrew Cogliano of the Ducks opened the scoring, assisted by Andrew Gordon and Devante Smith-Pelly.

Brad Richards scored his first goal since joining the Rangers with just over two minutes remaining in regulation time, making it 1-1 and forcing overtime at 17:45 of the third period.

Richards' goal came after the Ducks had trouble clearing the puck. Ryan McDonagh took control and passed to Richards. He skated up to Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller and put the puck over his shoulder, making it 1-all.

It was Richards' second point in his first two games with the Rangers, and showed precisely why the team brought him into the fold over the summer.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist kept his team close, rewarding the crowd with spectacular saves. The most memorable came in the second period when Ryan, alone to the side of Lundqvist, took a pass from Corey Perry. The crowd applauded wildly and began chanting "Henke! Henke!" -- Lundqvist's Swedish name.

The Rangers will return to New York having earned two points in two European games.
