Earlier in the month we started a new segment called the Union and Blue Challenge. The staff writers came up with questions and I gathered them all into one post to test your knowledge on the Columbus Blue Jackets, also known as CBJ BrainBusters! It is now time to reveal the answers for the first Union and Blue Challenge and hopefully a chance for you to let us know if you enjoyed this, or if it was a bust.
The first questions was submitted by Clint Linn…
In the Blue Jackets only season that they made the playoffs, what team were they playing the night they clinched their lone playoff birth?
Chicago Blackhawks, Calgary Flames, St. Louis Blues, or the Nashville Predators.
The answer is… The Chicago Blackhawks.
That was a tough question from Clint, I am not sure you would have been able to google the answer on that one (aka CHEATING). 66% of you answered correctly though, Bravo!
Question number two was from Peter Dewar…
What team did the Blue Jackets play against in the 2009 playoffs?
Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks, or the Phoenix Coyotes
With a whopping 97% selected, the Detroit Red Wings were the correct choice.
The third question came from Lindsay Wilson…
What team did Nikita Nikitin play for before joining the Columbus Blue Jackets?
St. Louis Blues, New York Rangers, Calgary Flames, or the San Jose Sharks
The correct choice was the St. Louis Blues, which 89% of you chose.
Mark Zahnle submitted the fourth question…
Who scored the Blue Jackets first ever regular season goal?
Bruce Gardiner, Lyle Odelein, Rostislav Klesa, or Ron Tugnutt
Whoever picked Ron Tugnutt is….not correct, and I am hoping it was just a joke because you didn’t know the answer! The correct answer is Bruce Gardiner. 74% of you answered correctly.
The final question came from Mike Majeski…
Besides the Jackets what THREE other professional (Major Level) hockey teams have called Ohio home?
Cleveland Barons, Cincinnati Stingers, Cleveland Crusaders, Toledo Walleye, Dayton Gems, or the Toledo Goaldiggers
For this questions you were able to choose three answers, hope fully you chose the three correct ones. Cleveland Barons (92%), Cleveland Crusaders (52%), Cincinnati Stingers (56%) were the three that you should of chose. That was also a tough question, seeing as Mike insisted on throwing some other hockey teams from Ohio into the mix who aren’t considered “professional”.
That concludes the first Union and Blue Challenge! Please be sure to comment below, tweets us, or comment on Facebook and let us know what you thought of the Union and Blue Challenge.
