ANAHEIM - Jacob Silfverberg has wasted no time making a good impression with the Anaheim Ducks.

Few Ducks fans were familiar with Silfverberg before he arrived in the offseason trade that sent Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators. But they had to like what they saw in their first close-up look at him when Silfverberg scored twice to highlight a 6-0 rout of the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Silfverberg's team-leading third and fourth goals came in Anaheim's home opener. He joined Teemu Selanne and Daniel Winnik as the only players in franchise history to score four goals in their first four games.

Jonas Hiller stopped 34 shots for his 17th career shutout as the Ducks improved to 3-1-0. Dampening the festivities for Anaheim was the loss of Dustin Penner and Nick Bonino to lower-body injuries and Mathieu Perrault to an upper-body injury.

Reeling might not be a strong enough word for the Rangers, now 1-3-0, who played their first game without star forward Rick Nash. He returned to New York to recover from an illegal hit to the head by San Jose's Brad Stuart on Tuesday. The Rangers have been outscored 15-2 in losses to the San Jose Sharks and the Ducks; they have five games remaining on a season-opening nine-game trip.

The Rangers were outshot 17-3 in the first period and left the ice trailing 3-0. New coach Alain Vigneault had to adjust lines without Nash, and the Taylor Pyatt-Derek Stepan-Jesper Fast trio was on the ice for all three first-period goals.

Ryan Getzlaf buried Corey Perry's pass for his first goal of the season after Perry drove past Ryan McDonagh and slid the puck past a sprawled Dan Girardi at 5:06.

Silfverberg scored his team-leading third goal when his swat from the slot of Selanne's pass trickled in at 9:17. Winnik completed the Rangers' first-period nightmare with a shot from the top of the right circle that handcuffed Henrik Lundqvist and went in over his left shoulder at 11:36.

The Rangers struggled to take care of the puck for most of the night, and the Ducks made them pay with three more goals in the second period.

Lundqvist got caught in no-man's land trying to outrace Selanne to a loose puck. Selanne won the race and slapped a shot off the right post that Silfverberg easily put into the open net at 1:27 for a 4-0 lead.

Saku Koivu made it 5-0 at 8:11 with a one-time finish of Winnik's pass after the Rangers turned it over on a breakout. Penner muscled his way to the net and put Perry's feed past Lundqvist at 16:15.
