The Ducks are in a bit of a funk. On Tuesday, the Anaheim entry in the National Hockey League suffered its third straight defeat, falling to the New York Rangers 4-1 at Madison Square Garden.
That loss dropped the Ducks to 28-17-10, putting them in a tie with the Edmonton Oilers for second place in the NHL Pacific Division. Each team had 66 points. They both trail the San Jose Sharks, in first with 70 points.
The lone Anaheim goal was scored by Jakob Silverberg (his 16th of the season) in the second period on a assist by Andrew Cogliano at the 6:14 mark. John Gibson had 16 saves in goal for the Ducks.
Anaheim is next in action on Thursday visiting the Buffalo Sabres in the fourth contest of a six-game road swing
