Panthers enter into must-win Game 2 vs. Lightning

It is only Game 2 of their Eastern Conference series, but the Florida Panthers are well aware the direction this journey will likely take if they drop Thursday's home clash with the Tampa Bay Lightning in Sunrise, Fla.

The Panthers must respond from Tuesday's 4-1 home defeat in the second-round series. Florida trailed 2-0 in last year's best-of-seven series with Tampa Bay and was dispatched by the Lightning en route to their second consecutive Stanley Cup title.

"We know how to win against this team. We've done it before," Panthers forward Anthony Duclair said. "We've just got to play with the puck more."
