Schneider made a great save on Kessel during a Leafs 3-on-1 in overtime to help force the shootout.
Kessel scored on the power play at 8:12 of the third period to open the scoring.
Ryder tied it on his own power-play score with 4:45 remaining in regulation.
DUCKS 6, SABRES 2
Getzlaf got his first career hat trick before the first intermission as the league-leading Ducks (14-3-1) trounced the league-worst Sabres (3-15-1) for their seventh win in eight games overall.
Frederik Andersen made 25 saves and improved to 5-0 in his NHL career as Anaheim won its seventh straight at Honda Center.
Mikhail Grigorenko scored his first two goals of the season for the Sabres, who finished their three-game California road swing with back-to-back losses. Ryan Miller stopped 28 shots in the first two periods while dropping to 2-11.
JETS 5, PREDATORS 0
Little, Jokinen and Tangradi each scored in the first 8:23 of the game, and Setoguchi made it 4-0 with 3:15 remaining in the first period. It was the most goals the Jets have scored in a period since March 1, 2012, when they had five against Florida.
Tangradi's goal sent goalie Carter Hutton to the bench after he stopped just five of the eight shots he faced over nearly 8½ minutes. Marek Mazanec, making his NHL debut after being called up from Milwaukee of the AHL on Nov. 5, turned aside 21 of the 23 shots he faced.
AVALANCHE 4, FLAMES 2
The Avalanche joined the 1995 Quebec Nordiques for the best 15-game start in franchise history. Colorado (13-2) needed 29 games to earn 26 points in last year's lockout shortened season.
