SUNRISE Jordy Nelson Jersey , Fla. — The Boston Bruins clinched a playoff berth, and just how motivated they will be to beat the host Florida Panthers on Thursday night at the BB&T Center remains to be seen.

The Florida Panthers, on the other hand, are fighting for their hockey lives. They must win their three remaining games — home-and-home with the Bruins sandwiching a contest against the Buffalo Sabres — and hope that either the Columbus Blue Jackets, New Jersey Devils or Philadelphia Flyers stumble the rest of this week.

“We have to win out,” Panthers winger Jonathan Huberdeau said. “We have to win every game.”

Meanwhile, the Bruins (49-18-12) are locked in a fight with the Tampa Bay Lightning for first place in the Atlantic Division. Both teams have 110 points, but Boston has one game in hand.

On Tuesday night, the Bruins were embarrassed in a 4-0 loss at the Lightning. It was Boston’s second straight defeat — and that is not the way a team wants to head into the playoffs.

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has had a great season with a 2.32 goals-against average and a 34-12-5 record. But his performance on Tuesday against Tampa Bay was not his best.

“Two goals from distance — he’s been better (in other games), and I think he would be the first one to say that,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “The second goal might have been through traffic. But the first one simply can’t go in.

“We didn’t score … so it might not have mattered.”

So there you have it: A desperate Panthers team that needs to win and hope for help to make it as an Eastern Conference wild-card playoff team competing against a Bruins squad that is already in but wants to be sharper as it prepares for the postseason.

The Panthers are coming off their most dramatic game of the year, a 2-1 home win over Nashville Predators, a team with the best record in the NHL.

With the Panthers clinging to that 2-1 lead, Nashville pulled its goalie for an extra attacker during the final three minutes. Panthers center Aleksander Barkov had a chance at an empty-net goal to ice the game Trevor Williams Jersey , but his shot hit the post.

Given a reprieve, Nashville turned up the pressure. Incredibly, the Predators scored with 0.3 seconds left as Filip Forsberg tapped in a loose puck. But after a dramatic video review, it was ruled that Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo had stopped the puck before Nashville’s Viktor Arvidsson spun him around with his stick.

Goalie interference was the call, and Luongo — naturally — agreed.

“At first, I wasn’t sure what happened,” Luongo said. “But once I saw the replay, the puck was between my legs. (Arvidsson) pitch-forked me. As he spun me around, the puck came loose.

“(The puck) was definitely under me. It was between my legs and covered. Once he spun me around, the puck came out. It’s pretty clear.”

Luongo, who turned 39 on Wednesday, gave a shout out to the replay crew after beating Nashville in career game No. 999

“I was happy they made the right call,” he said. “It would’ve been upsetting if it would’ve been ruled a goal. (During the review), I was trying not to snap if they allowed the goal. That’s what I kept telling myself.”

Boston still has a shot to overtake Nashville in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy Ted Ginn Jr Jersey , trailing by three points with a game in hand.

For Thursday’s game, one player to watch is Florida’s Colton Sceviour, normally a bottom-six forward. In the Panthers’ past two games, however, he made a third-period, game-winning play in each. He got a hit and an assist that led to the winning goal against the Carolina Hurricanes and scored the winning goal against Nashville.

Florida is relatively healthy. Boston, meanwhile, will be without defenseman Brandon Carlo (ankle) and winger Anders Bjork (shoulder). In addition, two key players, winger Rick Nash (upper body) and center Riley Nash (ear), are questionable.

Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan wants a contract extension. He deserves a contract extension.

But the sides have had no substantial talks, according to Lewan.

Still, Lewan is showing up to work every day, even though it’s not mandatory. He figures something will get done when it gets done.

鈥淎s of right now Quinten Rollins Jersey , there is no situation,” Lewan said, via Terry McCormick of titaninsider.com. “I understand that this is a business, and if something gets done here, that鈥檚 great. But if not, I understand it. That鈥檚 how it is. That鈥檚 how this game works. Whatever happens happens.”

Lewan currently is scheduled to make $9.341 million on the fifth-year option the Titans exercised. He is not opposed to his representation, CAA, negotiating into the season if that’s what it takes to get a long-term deal.

鈥淲hen it comes to this kind of stuff, that鈥檚 why I have an agent,” Lewan said. “I don鈥檛 give them 3 percent to sit on their [expletive]. I鈥檓 being serious. If they want to go, and Jon [Robinson] wants to call, and they want to have a conversation, I鈥檓 more than willing to, but I鈥檓 not going to move forward any in my life not focusing on football. That鈥檚 the main most important thing Michael Dickson Jersey , and I can鈥檛 lose track of what is important, and that鈥檚 playing football.鈥?/p>

Lewan, 26, will get something similar to the four-year, $62 million deal Nate Solder signed with the Giants. Lewan has become one of the NFL’s top tackles, or maybe the best.

鈥淚 would say from a competitive standpoint, absolutely,” Lewan said when asked if he was the best. “There are a lot of things I do well and a lot of things I can improve upon as a football player. But for me, if I don鈥檛 walk on the field and think I鈥檓 the best player in the NFL every time I step on the field, then I鈥檓 doing something wrong.鈥?/p> San Francisco 49ers Customized Jerseys
