Marcus Johansson scored twice and the Washington Capitals beat Vancouver 5-2 on Saturday night, handing the Canucks their fifth straight loss.

T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson and Karl Alzner also scored for the Capitals, who avoided their first three-game skid since February 2015. Philip Grubauer made 23 saves for Washington in his second start this season.

Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen scored for the Canucks, who are 0-4-1 since opening the season with four wins. Jacob Markstrom stopped 30 shots in his fifth start of the season.

Vancouver had been shutout in the previous two games, but Hansen scored with 6 seconds left in the first period for their first goal since the third period against Anaheim last Sunday.
