The other day, as I slogged my way through the 30-question Stanley Cup Quiz at nhl.com, I realized something – as Judge Smails would say, “It s-s-s-s-s-s-s-ucked.”
Questions whose answers nobody would know. Nothing but years and numbers answers – a recipe for gawd awful trivia questions. And no learning component whatsoever – which is a great-quiz essential.
So, here’s my own 20-question (because 30 is stupid long) Stanley Cup Quiz. Have fun. Please learn something.
1. The Montréal Canadiens won five consecutive Stanley Cups between 1956-60. Name the netminder who played 49 Stanley Cup Playoff games for those Canadiens.
A) Gerry McNeil
B) Georges Vézina
C) Charlie Hodge
D) Jacques Plante
