Ryan Miller stopped 34 shots to lead the Buffalo Sabres past the host Toronto Maple Leafs, 2-1, on Monday night.
Miller lost his shutout bid when Nazem Kadri scored on the power play with 1 minute, 42 seconds remaining. Toronto's Joffrey Lupul appeared to tie it seconds later with goalie Ben Scrivens on the bench, but the goal was disallowed.
Elsewhere: Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in the shootout to lift the host Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.
Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and two assists for St. Louis as the Blues edged the host Nashville Predators, 4-3, on a shootout. Tarasenko, who scored two goals in his NHL debut, remained just as active against Nashville. He scored on a wrister from the right circle.
