1919: The Stanley Cup playoff series between the NHL's Montreal Canadiens and the PCHA's Seattle Metropolitans is suspended after five games due to an outbreak of influenza. Montreal and Seattle had each won two games with one tie in the series. It was the only time in the history of the Stanley Cup that it was not awarded due to a no-decision after playoffs were held.
