Molson Makes A Big Pitch At 6th Annual Tournament

The Molson Slo-Pitch Challenge is being staged on the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario for the sixth straight year.

BOSTON—The post-mortems have begun. “Unfortunately,” said Keith Crowder moments after the Bruins had been eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens in three straight games, “when you lose, you look around the dressing room and you see a lot of good friends. “On paper I think we’ve got a hell of a squad. But we didn’t show it in this series. If you don’t win obviously things are going to happen. But that’s the general manager’s situation, not ours. We’re just players.” “I’m not a coach or a GM,” said Geoff Courtnall, “but I think something will be done. You have to win in the playoffs to make money. They’re not going to just sit around and watch us lose out every year.” “From a personnel standpoint, the season was a disaster,” said general manager Harry…
