WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Tomas Vokoun registered his first shutout for Washington Tuesday, stopping all 20 Florida shots in the Capitals' 3-0 whitewash of the Panthers.

Vokoun, who left the Panthers as a free agent after last season and signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Capitals, stopped nine shots in each of the final two frames to record his 45th career shutout.
