SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -Tomas Vokoun made 23 saves for his second shutout of the season, and Brett McLean, Richard Zednik and Bryan McCabe scored goals in the Florida Panthers' 3-0 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.

The Panthers ended an eight-game home losing streak against the Avalanche franchise and beat Colorado for the first time at BankAtlantic Center. Florida's last home victory in the series was April 22, 1995, against the Quebec Nordiques at Miami Arena.

Vokoun has 27 career shutouts.

Peter Budaj stopped 21 shots for the Avalanche.

McLean opened the scoring at 5:26 of the second with his first goal of the season and 50th in the NHL. He tipped Nick Tarnasky's shot past Budaj.

Zednik scored at 12:59 of the second, firing a backhander from the right side of the crease that went over Budaj and just under the crossbar.

McCabe added an empty-net goal on a power play with 1:42 left in the third.

The game was Florida's first at home since a 4-0 loss to Boston on Dec. 6.

Notes: Colorado's Marek Svatos missed his fifth straight game because of a back injury. ... Colorado RW Chris Stewart and Florida RW Anthony Stewart are brothers. ... Anthony Stewart was scratched from tonight's game, meaning the brothers missed out on their first NHL match-up. ... Florida D Jassen Cullimore left the game at the end of the first period because of an upper-body injury. He did not return.
