Huberdeau, Panthers beat Capitals for first win of season

WASHINGTON (AP) A dominant first period and a three-goal lead had the Florida Panthers feeling a little too good about cruising toward their first victory of the season.

"You feel comfortable, but I think we can't feel too comfortable," forward Jonathan Huberdeau said.

The Panthers blew that lead and allowed the tying goal with 85 seconds left in regulation before Huberdeau scored the shootout winner to beat the Washington Capitals 6-5 on Friday night and end a four-game season-opening skid.
