In the latter part of 1970s the Habs were in the middle of winning four straight Cups and were in Los Angeles for a game against the Kings. The boys won easily that night, and many of them decided to go out and celebrate. They ended up drinking too much, missed curfew, and eventually wobbled back to the hotel. At the hotel, the doorman happened to have a hockey stick, and asked the players, as they staggered in, to autograph his stick.
The next morning, Scotty Bowman called out all the players who missed curfew and fined them.
And how did he know?
He’d given the doorman a stick and asked him to get the latecomers to sign it.
