With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, NHL.com is taking stock of each of the League's 31 teams.

Today, a look at three memorable moments for the Tampa Bay Lightning at the pause:

 

101-year-old sings anthem

Robert McClintock had one heck of a birthday week.

The 101-year-old World War II veteran lit up Military Appreciation Night when he sang a spectacular rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the Lightning played the New York Rangers at Amalie Arena on Nov. 14.

 

Maroon gets ring

Pat Maroon received his Stanley Cup ring and a whole lot more before the game against the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 19.

The forward, who helped St. Louis win the Stanley Cup in 2019, received rousing applause from the Enterprise Center crowd, which included his dad Phil, fiancée, Francesca, and son, Anthony.

Surprise!

A staff meeting turned into a surprise announcement for Jon Cooper.

General manager Julien BriseBois stunned the Lightning coach when he broke news that they signed restricted free agent Brayden Point while speaking on stage in September.
