WASHINGTON (AP) – Tomas Vokoun blanked his former team with a 20-save performance, and the Washington Capitals beat the Florida Panthers 3-0 on Tuesday night to improve to 5-0, the best start in franchise history.
Marcus Johansson, Alexander Semin and Jason Chimera scored for the Capitals, who led 1-0 heading into the third period.
Washington and Detroit are the only NHL teams to win all their games thus far. The Capitals’ four-game winning streak at home to start the season is also a club record.
