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

Today, a look at three memorable moments for the Montreal Canadiens at the pause:


Lucky shot

Patrick Proteau picked up a hockey stick for the first time. He then made the shot of a lifetime.

The Canadiens fan serendipitously landed tickets to the game against the Detroit Red Wings at Bell Centre on Dec. 14 and shot his way to a minifridge and $50,000 during the second intermission.

Price's No. 1 fan

Carey Price had his No. 1 fan cheering for him against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 5.

Anderson Whitehead, who lost his mom to cancer in 2018, went wild for Price's win at Scotiabank Arena. He then had the weekend of a lifetime at the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis.

Grand opening number

Canadiens fans were treated to a pregame concert Jan. 9.

The Montreal Symphony, led by conductor Ken Nagano, produced a spectacular rendition of "O Canada" before Montreal's game against the Edmonton Oilers at Bell Centre.
