Sean Bergenheim, Jason Garrison and Mike Weaver also scored and Scott Clemmensen made 19 saves after replacing Jose Theodore early in giving the Panthers a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference first-round series.

Game 4 will be played here on Thursday.

Florida converted on all three of its power plays against the league’s top-ranked penalty kill unit, and is now 6 of 10 in the series with the man advantage.

Zach Parise, Stephen Gionta and Patrik Elias scored for the Devils, who jumped out 3-0 in the opening 6:16.
