Feb. 11, 2010 vs Boston (the Bruins jumped out to a 5-0 lead, the Lightning rallied to within a goal but lost 5-4) and Mar. 22, 2011 vs NY Islanders (Isles won 5-2 in a lacklustre game). Both games were poorly attended; official paid attendance wasn't even announced. I actually bought box seats for the latter on the street for a measly $40/ea. The crowd for the latter game was especially dead.
