Florida Panthers' forwards Joe Thornton and Anton Lundell will slot in for Game 4, per head coach Andrew Brunette, as the Panthers look to avoid a series sweep against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Lundell has not played since Game 2 against the Lightning, when he played only 4:07 minutes. In 8 playoff games played this year, he has not registered a point.

This will be Thornton's playoff debut.

Anthony Duclair and Ryan Lomberg will draw out of the lineup.
