Have you gone to see the Lightning away from home?

I live up north. I saw the Bolts play the Canadiens at the Bell Center on St. Patrick's Day. That was the game Vinny got tossed out of the game because Subban embellished the arm slash. It was also the game where Roloson made an unbelievable diving stick save. The game went to a shootout, but the Lightning ended up losing.
Overall, the atmosphere was, I thought, a little disappointing considering the legendary status the Bell center has for hockey games. It was relatively quiet throughout the game. The boo's did rain upon Vinny when he got tossed, but other than that, a little disappointed.
I also saw them play in Buffalo at the First Niagara Center, glass seats. That was a sloppy game. Two fights, Downie and Kaleta I think it was, and Malone and some other fellow. I met Pierre McGuire after the game. Bolts ended up winning 4-3 I think it was. I do remember Malone scored on a breakaway. It was a pretty cool experience. I got the "eyebrow raise" from Pavel Kubina in warmups too
