TORONTO, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- A 24-save effort by Jonas Gustavsson brought him his first shutout of the season Thursday in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 4-0 victory over Winnipeg.

Gustavsson has two shutouts in 84 career appearances spread over three seasons. The Maple Leafs won their second straight on the heels of a three-game losing streak.

Phil Kessel, who began the night tied for second on the NHL's goal-scoring list, produced his 23rd goal of the season 5 minutes into the game.

Tim Connolly delivered the only second-period goal and Toronto then pulled away with third-period scores from Mikhail Grabovski and Clarke MacArthur.

All four goals were surrendered by Chris Mason on 25 shots.

The Jets have lost two in a row, having suffered a 7-3 defeat at the hands of Montreal Wednesday.
