Patrik Elias was the only skater to miss a shot in the shootout, failing in the third round and thus costing New Jersey a chance at victory.
Toronto built a 2-0 lead in the second period on goals by Bozak and Kadri but New Jersey eventually tied the score at 3-3 with just 4:42 to play on a tip-in by Adam Henrique.
James Reimer stayed busy while making 43 saves to help Toronto halt a two-game slide. Martin Brodeur faced just 17 shots, but let three of them get by and then did not stop a single effort in the shootout.
