      Here's a bit of trivia that might win you a "pop" or two down at your
      favorite watering hole. Just remember, don't drink and drive ;)

      See if any of your buddies can name the members of the original KLM
      line.

      KLM LINE FLYING HIGH FOR BRUINS
      ===============================

      The Hershey Bears high-flying KLM "Dutch" Line of Ray Kinasewich-Claude
      Laforge-Willie Marshall, has been the club's big offensive punch in
      early American Hockey League action.

      The line gets its KLM nickname from the first letters of their last
      names.

      After the first fifteen games, Marshall, pivotman of the line, was
      deadlocked with Kinasewich for the team's individual scoring lead. Both
      had 19 points, though the 27-year-old Kinasewich, of Smokey Lake,
      Alta., was the No.1 goal getter with nine.

      And right on Kinasewich's heels was Laforge, of Sorel, Que., who had
      hit for seven goals. Marshall, of Kirkland Lake, Ont., had scored five,
      but was the leading playmaker with 14 assists.
