BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ryan Callahan scored the decisive goal in the shootout and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots to lead the New York Rangers to a 1-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night.
Callahan scored in the fifth round of the shootout by driving in on Ryan Miller, leaning to his right and snapping a shot into the open left side.
Marian Gaborik had scored in the first round of the shootout and the Sabres' Jason Pominville answered in the third round, beating Lundqvist on the stick side.
Both goalies earned a shutout, with Miller stopping 29 shots through overtime. It was Lundqvist's sixth shutout of the season, his third in his last five starts and 41st of his career ? putting him alone in second place on the team's all-time list, one ahead of Dave Kerr.
MAPLE LEAFS 1, PENGUINS 0
TORONTO (AP) ? James Reimer stopped all 25 shots he faced and Clarke MacArthur scored in the third period to lift Toronto over Pittsburgh.
The win gave the Maple Leafs a split of a home-and-home set with Pittsburgh one night after the Penguins erased a 4-1 deficit in the third period before pulling out a 5-4 shootout win.
It looked as if overtime would again be necessary Wednesday until MacArthur took a pass from Mikhail Grabovski and deked around Brent Johnson with 6:05 to go in regulation.
Reimer, who was starting for only the second time in 14 games, registered his first shutout since opening night against Montreal in October.

Brooks Laich and John Carlson scored for the Capitals, and Michal Neuvirth had 35 saves.
Samuelsson's second goal came during a power play and gave the Panthers a 2-1 lead. It was his first multi-goal game since Feb. 12, 2011, at Vancouver.
