STOCKHOLM (AP) - Bobby Ryan scored the only goal in a shootout and the Anaheim Ducks offset New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist’s spectacular play to beat the Rangers 2-1 on Saturday night.

Andrew Cogliano opened the scoring for the Ducks midway through the first period, and Brad Richards tied it with 2:15 left in the third period.
