TORONTO (AP) -Dwayne Roloson made 58 saves - the most by an NHL goalie in 18 years - and Josh Bailey scored at 4:18 of overtime to give the New York Islanders a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.

The 40-year-old Roloson improved to 7-2-5 this season. The last goalie to turn aside at least 58 shots was Ron Tugnutt, who had 70 saves for the Quebec Nordiques at Boston on March 21, 1991, according to STATS.

Bailey took a pass from Sean Bergenheim in overtime and slammed the puck into an open net. It was the Islanders' only shot of the extra period. Jeff Tambellini, Matt Moulson and Bergenheim also scored for New York.

Phil Kessel, Wayne Primeau and Niklas Hagman scored for the Maple Leafs (4-11-7), who outshot the Islanders 61-21.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 19 shots for the Penguins, who outshot Florida 45-21.

Nathan Horton and Keith Ballard scored for the Panthers, who have lost only once in regulation in their last 12 games (8-1-3). Michael Frolik had two assists, and Tomas Vokoun made 42 saves.

Rookie defensemen Michael Del Zotto and Matt Gilroy also scored for the Rangers. Artem Anisimov had a goal and two assists.

Blake Wheeler and Mark Recchi also scored for the defending Northeast Division champions, who are 11-8-4. They had twice won consecutive games this season before beating St. Louis for only the third time in 18 meetings since 1996-97.

Defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo had a goal and an assist, and Keith Tkachuk scored on a deflection for the Blues, who failed in an attempt for their first three-game winning streak.

The Coyotes have dropped two of three and are yet to win consecutive games this month.

Moreau beat goalie Ilya Bryzgalov at 7:59 of the first period. Edmonton then quickly opened a three-goal cushion when Souray scored at 11:07 and Hemsky at 11:14.
