Just read this trivia on Sportsnet:

The Stanley Cup has only seen two seasons where it wasn’t awarded: In 2004-05, because of a yearlong lockout, and 1918-19, because of the Spanish flu.

A high level Italian soccer player tested positive (Juventus player named Rugani).  They were already playing games with no fans for the last couple weeks.

Funny that they call it the Spanish Flu when it didn't originate there; the Spanish were just the first to not hide reports of there incidents of the H1N1 virus.
