Jakob Silfverberg and Ondrej Kase scored in the shootout after Hampus Lindholm tied the game on the power play with 1:46 remaining in the third period, and the Ducks rallied for a 4-3 win over the visiting New York Rangers on Saturday.

Silfverberg also had a power-play goal for the Ducks (14-15-4). Erik Gudbranson also scored, and John Gibson stopped three shots in the shootout after making 29 saves through overtime.

Mika Zibanejad had two goals for the second consecutive game and Artemi Panarin scored for the fourth straight game, but the Rangers (16-12-4) ended up going 2-1-1 on their four-game road trip.

Henrik Lundqvist made 39 saves, and New York still has not won consecutive games this month.
