The San Jose Sharks will try to end their three-game winless streak (0-2-1) when they face the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center on Sunday.

The Sharks are coming off a 7-1 loss at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. Goalie Martin Jones was pulled 52 seconds into the third period after allowing his fourth goal on 21 shots.

The Panthers will be looking for their third win in four games on a nine-game homestand, their longest since entering the NHL in 1993. They defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Saturday when Sergei Bobrovsky made 33 saves while facing his former team for the first time.

Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson has seven points (one goal, six assists) in his past seven games.

Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle had two assists against Columbus, giving him six during a four-game point streak.

"Honestly, I thought we played pretty well through two [periods]. I thought we had some good 5-on-5 looks -- they scored a power-play [goal] at the end there -- but I didn t like our third period. We kind of gave them some freebies and let our goalies down." -- Sharks captain Logan Couture on the 7-1 loss at Tampa Bay

"Back-to-backs are always tough, but I think that s how you get to this level. We ve got to suck it up, get some rest tonight and come back and try and do the same thing. San Jose is a pretty good team, but I think if we can stick to our fundamentals we ll be all right." -- Panthers defenseman Josh Brown
