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.

Tarasenko scoring

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.

Isles get the W

David Ullstrom scored early in the third period to give the Islanders a big lead, and New York held off the Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-3.

Coach Jack Capuano returned to the Islanders and guided them to their first win of the season. He missed the opening-night loss to New Jersey on Saturday because of surgery to remove a kidney stone.

Kings' Greene out

The Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings were hit with a significant blow as one of their most durable defenseman, Matt Greene, suffered a back injury in the season opener, putting his season in jeopardy.
