The Florida Panthers lost 3-2 to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night, and they lost two players who are key to their playoff push as well, per TSN:

Florida Panthers defenceman Aaron Ekblad left Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second period with an upper body injury.

Ekblad was hit in the corner by Lightning centre Gabriel Dumont, with his head appearing to hit the glass. Ekblad headed to the dressing room after the hit and the team announced he will not return.

Shortly after Ekblad was injured, the Panthers also lost Denis Malign to injury.

Malgin was hip-checked into the boards by Lightning defenceman Anton Stralman and fell to the ice before leaving the game.

Here's a vieo of Ekblad's injury from Sportsnet:
