DETROIT (AP) -The Toronto Maple Leafs watched the Detroit Red Wings hoist the Stanley Cup banner to the rafters, then they put a damper on the celebration.

Pavel Kubina, Dominic Moore and Nikolai Kulemin scored, lifting the Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win Thursday night in the opener for both teams. Vesa Toskala made 35 saves - and stood strong against a power play in the final 30 seconds - to help Ron Wilson win his first regular-season game behind Toronto's bench.

Tomas Holmstrom scored twice for Detroit, which raised its 11th championship banner to the Joe Louis Arena rafters in a pregame ceremony.
