Baertschi scored his first two goals of the season, and Dorsett scored his fourth goal in the past three games as the Canucks downed the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Sunday.

"I've had a lot of chances in the last few games, so it was good to get one to go in," said Baertschi, who opened the scoring and later made it 3-1. "The second one made it even better."

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- With a late arrival into D.C., a backup goalie in net and a formidable foe across the ice, the outlook for the Florida Panthers to earn their first road victory of the season didn't appear promising Saturday.

But the Panthers shook off the cobwebs, James Reimer withstood an early barrage of shots and Florida took advantage of uncharacteristically sloppy play by the home team to earn an impressive 4-1 triumph over the Washington Capitals to end a three-game losing streak and pick up its first road win in four attempts.
