TORONTO (AP) -Wade Belak scored a rare goal and Vesa Toskala stopped 34 shots to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Nashville Predators 3-1 Tuesday night.
Goofy goals by Nik Antropov, Matt Stajan and Belak - his first in four years - helped the Leafs win their third straight.
Shea Weber scored for Nashville, and goalie Chris Mason made 12 saves.
Belak got his first goal since Dec. 20, 2003, at 2:48 of the third period.
Flames 3, Blues 1
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Dustin Boyd's first goal of the season broke a tie in the second period.
Boyd banked the puck off the backside of Blues goaltender Hannu Toivonen. It was a bad break for the Finnish goaltender who was otherwise spectacular in the middle period as Calgary outshot St. Louis 20-2.
Marcus Nilson and Kristian Huselius also scored for the Flames, who took 37 shots on Toivonen.
Miikka Kiprusoff had 21 saves for Calgary.
Lightning 4, Senators 3, SO
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Vinny Prospal scored in the fourth round of a shootout and the Tampa Bay Lightning extended Ottawa's losing streak to seven games with a 4-3 victory over the Senators on Tuesday night.
The Lightning, who blew a 3-1 lead in the final two minutes, won the shootout 2-1.
Daniel Alfredsson scored twice during a three-goal third, helping the Senators tie it at 3. Alfredsson (1:57 left) and Wade Redden (1:21 remaining) completed the comeback scoring 36 seconds apart late in the period.
The Senators have lost seven games in a row for the first time since Feb. 22-March 9, 1996.
Mathieu Darche, Chris Gratton and Filip Kuba scored for the Lightning.
Red Wings 4, Canadiens 1
MONTREAL (AP) - Pavel Datsyuk scored two unassisted goals off turnovers and Dominik Hasek stopped 15 shots to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.
