MIAMI (AP) _ Peter Bondra continued his hot streak with two goals and an assist as the Washington Capitals won their fourth straight on the road, 5-2 over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.

Bondra, who leads the Capitals with 16 goals, has six goals in four games and a point in his last eight. He moved ahead of Mark Reechi into second place behind Eric Lindros in all-time scoring against Florida with 15 goals and seven assists in 14 career games.

Washington, which had given up 11 goals in a tie with Colorado and a loss to San Jose, scored first just 1:44 into the game when Bondra rebounded the puck after a shot by Chris Simon and put it past John Vanbiesbrouck.

It was the 15th time in 24 games that Washington (13-8-3) has scored first.

Florida, which is next to last in the league on the power play, tied it on Ray Sheppard's goal at 6:40 of the first on a 5-on-4. Sheppard, who beat Olaf Kolzig with a high shot, hadn't scored since Oct. 25 when he had two in Boston.

Kolzig stopped 28 shots to improve his record to 12-4-2.

Phil Housley scored on the power play to give Washington a 2-1 advantage before Bondra scored his second with 29.8 seconds remaining in the second period from in close.

Mark Tinordi and Simon had goals in the final period for the Capitals.

Ray Whitney scored for Florida just 23 seconds after Tinordi redirected a shot off the post that had extended Washington's lead to 4-1.

Florida (7-12-4) dropped its fourth consecutive game at home and has a five-game winless streak at Miami Arena.

The Panthers have won only two games at home this season, the last coming against Washington on Nov. 9.

Vanbiesbrouck (5-8-2) had 25 saves.
