ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Kevin Klein had the first two-goal game of his 11-year NHL career, scoring the tiebreaking goal with 6:41 to play in the New York Rangers' 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.

Klein also scored the tying goal in the second period for the Rangers, who opened their three-game California road trip with their second win in five games overall. The veteran defenseman played 555 regular-season games with Nashville and New York and 67 playoff games before his first two-goal performance.

Antti Raanta made 22 saves in the Rangers' second victory over Anaheim this season.

Jamie McGinn scored and John Gibson stopped 21 shots for the Ducks, who have lost four of five in their first poor stretch since Christmas.
