WASHINGTON (AP) - Troy Brouwer scored two goals and Braden Holtby stopped 27 shots and assisted on Brouwer's second goal and the Washington Capitals shut out the Florida Panthers 5-0 in the opener of a home-and-home series Saturday night.

Mathieu Perreault and Joel Ward each added a goal and an assist, and Alex Ovechkin also scored for Washington (3-8-1), which snapped a three-game losing streak.

It was the first time Washington has scored more than three goals in a game this season.

The two teams play at Florida (4-6-1) on Tuesday.
