TORONTO -- In a dogfight for the Eastern Conference title, a visit to Air Canada Centre was just what the New York Rangers needed. cheap nfl jerseys . Ryan Callahan scored the shootout winner Saturday as the Rangers beat the Maple Leafs 4-3 to stretch their lead in the conference race and extend Torontos home winless stretch to nine games. The Rangers captain moved in on Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson and wired a shot top corner in the third round to clinch it. Torontos Tim Connolly gave the Leafs an edge in the second round before Brad Richards replied for New York. Rangers goalie Henrik Lunqvist then stoned Nazem Kadri to set up Callahans winner. "I just like the way we found a way to win. I dont think were doing everything great. Theres a lot of things to work on, but we found a way to win," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "I thought we were ugly as hell through a number of minutes, and with of the things were doing, we have a lot of things to work on. But by killing penalties, blocking shots, we found a way to win a road game." The Rangers lead Pittsburgh in the Atlantic Division, and top spot in the conference, by three points after the Penguins lost 8-4 to Ottawa on Saturday night. "There was a lot of back and forth, a lot of momentum swings ... We stuck with things and kept going," Callahan said. "We had a lot of big penalties at the end and were able to get two points out of it. "I dont want to talk about the Penguins -- Im tired of talking about them. Its about us now." Marian Gaborik, with two goals, and Brandon Dubinsky scored in regulation for New York (47-21-7). Lundqvist made 22 stops for the Rangers, while Richards added two assists. Joey Crabb, with a goal and an assist, Cody Franson and Connolly replied for the Leafs (33-34-9), who got 30 saves from Gustavsson. Toronto has not won at Air Canada Centre since a 6-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 6, a stretch of 0-7-2. "Were trying to win every game regardless of whether we get booed or we get cheered," said Leafs centre David Steckel, who had two assists. "We had that mentality tonight but fell a point short." The line of Crabb, Steckel and Connolly has been given the responsibility of checking opposing teams top lines by Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. The trio has also chipped in offensively, as was the case on Saturday night. "Its always nice when you can get a bit of offensive pressure on an offensive line," Crabb said. "When theyre in their zone theyre obviously not scoring, so the more time you can get in the offensive zone, the better defensively youre doing." Carlyle, who took over for the fired Ron Wilson three weeks ago, has been impressed with Crabb. "He seems to be around the puck," Carlyle said. "Hes getting lots of minutes and their line is earning it, so its a win-win situation for a young players whos starting to grow." Both teams had chances to end it in overtime, including a shot from Torontos Phil Kessel on a partial break that just went wide. Gaborik scored his second of the night and 37th of the season at 4:19 of the third on a beautiful saucer pass from Richards in the slot to give New York at 3-2 advantage. But the Rangers lead didnt last long as Connolly followed up a shot by Crabb for his 12th of the season just 19 seconds later. Tortorella marvelled at Gaboriks second but added his two stars need to play a more complete game. "(Richards and Gaborik) have to play a little defence, too, and theyre both capable of doing that. The third goal is probably one of the greatest goals Ive ever seen, as far as what Richie did at the blue-line -- to stay onside, get the puck and then saucer one to Gabby," Tortorella said. "It was just one helluva goal. But they cant get scored on twice by (Torontos) fourth line." Crabb gave Toronto a 2-1 lead at 6:53 of the second after the Rangers failed to clear the zone. Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf kept the puck in at the point and it found its way to Crabb in front, whose shot just slid over the line behind Lunqvist. Dubinsky tied it at 15:29 off a faceoff where the Leafs got outmuscled in front of their own net. Dubinsky fished the puck out of a maze of bodies and buried it behind Gustavsson for his ninth of the season. Gustavsson, who was making his first start since March 11, said its easy to get up for a game against a fellow Swede like Lundqvist. "Hes a good goalie -- one of the best and hes having a really good year and you always know youve got to be sharp. Its fun to play against him but in the end you prepare yourself the same way." A first period that saw just 13 combined shots still produced plenty of action. Toronto opened the scoring at 9:11 off a pretty feed from Kessel to Franson on a 2-on-1 before Gaborik tied it on a shot off a faceoff in the Leafs zone that deflected off Phaneufs stick and past Gustavsson at 12:19.

MATCHUPS: Its really fun to watch both head coaches move around the chess pieces and create situations where they get their better players in scenarios where they have the supposed upper hand. Its fascinating stuff to key in on and its the essence of NBA hoops. Been impressed with both coaching staffs preparation and attention to detail. Plays out of timeouts from both sides have been well scripted and the amount of details flying around in both huddles is evident. As a former coach, I really enjoy and respect this aspect of these games. 2. LANDRY FIELDS: Totally agree with this move and I said it the other day. Hes the most capable defender that they have in the Joe Johnson matchup due to his size, strength, athleticism, smarts and overall range. Hes a guy you can play for a possession or two at the four-spot as well to match Paul Pierce. He made a big impact on Tuesday night in spite of not scoring. Ive said it many times before - yes, he has limitations but hes a winning player that does the little things that teams must have to get over the hump. A true pro just like so many of the guys on both of these teams. 3. TURNOVERS: Toronto has 40 in just two games - at home! To be tied 1-1 in the series after that youve got to feel really fortunate. You do that on the road and this series will be over quick. Nets defence in the half court has been sensational. Multiple help and amazing communication and coverages. Raptors must realize that the Nets are incredibly help-conscious and play on that and look to create their help and then get rid of the balll quick to the next guy and keep them on the run and prevent them loading up on the guy with the ball. cheap nfl jerseys china. Must be a whole lot tougher with the ball and play through contact. Not going to get the whistle-deal with it and be that much better. It can be done. Move the ball side-top-side and make the defence cover. Better spacing, screening, ball and player movement and inside-out play are imperative. 4. BENCH USAGE: Jason Kidd goes with 11 guys and Dwane Casey with eight. Different styles. Considering that both teams didnt play from Saturday afternoon until Tuesday night and you would think you would load up your starters minutes, yet Jason Kidd wants his team all in on every possession defensively so no plays off. No right or wrong answer here, just interesting to watch the points of emphasis on both sides play out. 5. CROWDS (both inside and outside ACC): Wow! My goodness, I have goose bumps just typing this. Im so proud of the fans and feel so happy for them that theyre getting to experience this. Blown away by the enthusiasm and atmosphere. Toronto is making a major statement that its a major league hoops town and that this country is embracing this sport more and more each day. The singing of the Canadian national anthem by the fans is awesome - it chokes me up. Been working as a Raptors broadcaster for the past 16 years and have seen all of the good and all of the not-so-good. Your loyalty to the Raptors and the growth of the sport are truly appreciated. Im so fortunate to be a part of it. This has been remarkable to watch develop over the years. Enjoy - you deserve it. ' ' '
