A four-goal outburst in the first period put the Anaheim Ducks on the path to a 6-3 win over the New York Rangers Tuesday night at Honda Center.
The win improved the team’s record to 23-17-9, worth 55 points and a tie for fourth place in the NHL Pacific Division with the Los Angeles Kings.
In the first, the Ducks got scores from J.T. Brown, Corey Perry, Andrew Cogliano and Adam Henrique to build a 4-2 edge. The Rangers cut the lead to one with a goal in the second, but the Ducks pulled away with two scores in the third. Rickard Rakell and Ryan Getzlaf lit the red lamp for Anaheim.
The Ducks are next in action on Thursday hosting the Winnipeg Jets (29-13-7).
