Capitals' Vokoun shuts out Canadiens

Tomas Vokoun made 30 saves for his third shutout of the season and Alexander Semin scored on the second of Washington's two penalty shots in the Capitals' 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Alex Ovechkin returned to the Capitals' lineup after serving a three-game suspension for his hit on Pittsburgh's Zbynek Michalek.

Dennis Wideman and Matt Hendricks also scored for Washington, which won for just the second time in its last six (2-2-2).

Vokoun recorded his 47th NHL shutout, his first in 21 games against Montreal. He debuted with the Canadiens in 1996-97.

Peter Budaj stopped 20 shots for the Canadiens, who lost their third in a row.
