Rangers Vs. Maple Leafs Final Score: New York Clings To First Place With Shootout Win

Ryan Callahan - the New York Rangers venerable captain - put home his shootout attempt in the third round to push the Blue Shirts past the Toronto Maples on Saturday night, earning his team a 4-3 win and maintaing its stronghold on first place in the Atlantic Divison and Eastern Conference standings.

Marian Gaborik notched a pair of goals in regulation for New York, who was desperate for a quality effort with the Pittsburgh Penguins breathing down their neck and a night after being waxed by the Buffalo Sabres, 4-1.

Although it wasn't his best outing, Henrik Lundqvist got it done once again between the pipes for New York, stopping 22 of 25 shots on net and making a key stop of Nazem Kadri in the shootout to set up Callahan's game-winner.

The Rangers, who currently sit three points ahead of Pittsburgh, will next hit the ice on Tuesday night in Minnesota against the Wild.
