We alluded to it yesterday, and now, the time has come.

In appreciation of you joining the battle with us and helping to #DefendNWA, we're giving you the opportunity to win tickets in a luxury suite or glass seats to select games on the 2012-13 NHL schedule.

It's just another example of why Blue Jackets fans rock: take a look at Twitter, and log on to Facebook. Our #DefendNWA avatars are all over the place, and the cover photos are being uploaded left and right.

And how about the message from James Wisniewski in the video shown above? Pretty awesome.

On to the contest...

All you have to do is fill out the form provided below (and make sure you have the correct answer!) to enter the contest. The prize? Winner and a guest get to enjoy the game against said opponent from either a luxury suite or glass seats, depending on the game.

Without further ado, let's get it started.
