Ovechkin scored twice from in close on the power play, and weaved through traffic for his other goal, as the Capitals (19-17-2) improved to 8-2-1 in their last 11 games in completing a four-game season sweep of the Panthers.
Tomas Vokoun's first shutout with the Capitals was quite unlike the six he had last season with the Florida Panthers — the team he and his Washington teammates beat Tuesday night.
Bruce Boudreau didn't really want to talk about it. He and the Capitals were one win away from the first five-game winning streak to start the season in the 37-season history of the franchise.

Tomas Plekanec netted his second goal of the game during Montreal's three-goal spurt early in the third period, and the Canadiens topped the Florida Panthers 6-2 in a preseason game Monday night.
