Vokoun, who played the last four years with the Panthers, earned his 45th career shutout and first with the Capitals.
 
Marcus Johansson scored in the first period, and Alexander Semin had a goal and an assist on Jason Chimera’s empty-net goal in the third. It was Chimera’s team-leading fourth goal.

Johansson scored his third of the season 4:24 into the game on the power play, sneaking a shot just inside the right post from a bad angle. Washington outshot Florida, playing its third game in four nights, 11-2 in the first period.
 
Dennis Wideman had an assist on Semin’s goal, giving him a point in all five games.
 
Florida went with seven defensemen in the lineup as forward Sean Bergenheim was scratched with a minor injury. Defenseman Keaton Ellerby played his first game this season for the Panthers.
