Playoff intensity expected when Lightning meet Panthers

The Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning will finish their quick two-game set on Saturday night in St. Petersburg, Fla., bringing what feels like an abrupt end to some budding drama.

The Lightning came back twice from a one-goal deficit against their intrastate rival before defenseman Victor Hedman tallied on a breakaway 54 seconds into overtime to give Tampa Bay the victory.

The Lightning struggled during much of the 3-2 victory, yet the defending champions found a way to win anyway.
