 NEW YORK (AP) -Steve Valiquette outdueled Toronto's Vesa Toskala in a goalie showdown, and Fredrik Sjostrom scored the deciding goal in a shootout to lift the New York Rangers to a 1-0 victory over the Maple Leafs on Friday night.
Valiquette allowed a goal in the tiebreaker to Nikolai Kulemin, but earned his third NHL shutout when Jason Blake hit the post on the final shot of the shootout.
Nikolai Zherdev opened the shootout with a goal for the Rangers, who bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Buffalo on Wednesday night to improve to 6-1. Toronto is 0-1-2 since opening with a victory over the Stanley Cup champion Detroit.
Three of Valiquette's 11 career victories have come against the Maple Leafs, including a shootout victory last season. He skated off as the first star of the game to chants of ``Vall-ey! Vall-ey!'' from the appreciative Madison Square Garden crowd.
Valiquette, getting a rare home start over No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist, made 21 saves - but only nine after the second period. Lundqvist is expected back Saturday night in Detroit.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Rick Nash had two goals and rookies Nikita Filatov and Jake Voracek added goals in a Columbus-record span of 8 seconds.
The victory ended Nashville's string of 16 consecutive games with a point against Columbus (15-0-1). It was the longest active streak in an NHL regular-season series.
Filatov - an 18-year-old playing in his first career NHL game - and Voracek scored 8 seconds apart in the opening period. Jason Chimera also scored for Columbus.
Blue Jackets goalie Pascal Leclaire stopped a hard shot with the palm side of his blocker with just over 5 minutes left, then left the ice in pain while holding out his bare right hand. The club said he didn't break any bones, just bruised a thumb. He will not play when the teams meet again Saturday night in Nashville.
Nashville's Greg de Vries and Scott Nichol scored in an 11-second span in the second period, and J.P. Dumont added a goal.
Sabres 5, Canucks 2

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Erik Cole, Lubomir Visnovsky and Robert Nilsson scored power-play goals in the second period for Edmonton.
