WASHINGTON (AP) Elias Pettersson insisted he never worried throughout a monthlong drought about when his next goal would come.

"Sometimes it just doesn't go your way," he said. "I know what I'm capable of."

The gifted Swede showed Sunday what he's capable of, scoring twice to help the Vancouver Canucks beat the Washington Capitals 4-2 and snap a three-game losing streak. Pettersson had two goals in the first five minutes of the second period after not scoring the past seven games dating to Dec. 14 against Columbus.
