TAMPA — On one hand, it’s not going to take much for the Florida Panthers to get back into this series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. But to do so, winning Game 3 on enemy ice is not going to come easy.

The Panthers, by losing the first two games of this best-of-7 series, have dug themselves into a big hole especially since those two losses came at home in front of a raucous crowd.

Game 3 of the series shifts to Amalie Arena in Tampa, where Florida won two of four games during the regular season.
