Ducks can't handle Rangers' speed in 2-1 loss at the Honda Center

It took longer than a New York minute for the Ducks to find out how much the game can change from one East Coast team to the next.

For most of 60 minutes Wednesday they were largely bottled up against the New York Rangers in a tight, low-scoring game with flow but little space. While the Ducks have prided themselves on winning such affairs in their turnaround this season, they couldn't prevent a 2-1 loss at the Honda Center.

Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein delivered his first career two-goal game, in his 555th game, the winner on a tap-in of Eric Staal's pass with 6:41 remaining to delight the blue-shirt heavy crowd.
