The Rangers and Ducks will be meeting for the first time in nearly two years on Thursday night. The two teams did not face each other last season, but in 2011-12 they met twice with each team winning in a shootout by the scre of 2-1. Anaheim grabbed the first of the two games by defeating the Rangers in Stockholm as part of the NHL Premiere on October 8, 2011 before the Rangers beat the Ducks on November 3, 2011 at Madison Square Garden. Though just 1-1-1 in their last three games against the Ducks, the Rangers are 7-3-1 since November 19, 2002 versus Anaheim. Their last win at the Honda Center came on December 16, 2008. Lifetime the Rangers are 10-13-1-1 against the Ducks, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this season. The Rangers do not have any former Ducks on their roster, and likewise the Ducks do not have any former Blueshirts.
