NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Chris Mason made 47 saves through overtime and then was perfect in two shootout rounds to carry the St. Louis Blues to a 1-0 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Mason earned his first shutout of the season and the 13th of his NHL career. He outdueled Nashville's Dan Ellis, who also posted his first blanking with a 17-save effort but allowed shootout goals to Dave Perron and Brad Boyes.

Ellis, who made his ninth straight start, picked up his seventh NHL shutout.

Mason clinched the win with stops against Rich Peverley and Ville Koistinen in the shootout, and was sharp in killing off Barret Jackman's tripping penalty in overtime.

TORONTO (AP) - Todd White scored two goals and Johan Hedberg made 32 saves in Atlanta's victory over Toronto.

Colby Armstrong, Chris Thorburn, Ilya Kovalchuk and Mathieu Schneider also scored for Atlanta (8-10-2).

Nik Antropov, Jeff Finger and Niklas Hagman had goals for the Maple Leafs, who lost for the eighth time in 10 games.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Rene Bourque scored twice and linemate Curtis Glencross added a goal and two assists for Calgary in a win over Los Angeles. Craig Conroy, the third member of that trio, chipped in three assists as the Flames' third line played as though it was the top-scoring unit.
