Continuity mistake: A camera pan of the Washington presidents bench shows the back Of player #7, 3 seconds later he's in front of the goalie when the goal is scored. 4 seconds later he hops over the boards to start another shift. How he was in all those places seemingly at once is beyond me. Also on the same play you see #4 of the chiefs climbing over the boards for the second shift, but he started the game!
Continuity mistake: Newman opens a soda bottle in the locker room after the game vs the ducks is over. He has a trace amount of blood on his jersey while talking to his players. When he turns to talk to Michael Ontkean (Braden) there's a much more pronounced blood stain or two on his jersey.
Continuity mistake: There's a close up scene of Reggie Dunlop (Paul Newman) skating and trying to make a backhand pass to someone. You can clearly see the puck slide off the end of his stick before he passes but he goes through the passing motion anyway. Pan to Drouin who appears to receive the pass with no problem.
Continuity mistake: In a fight scene with Newman vs the Long Island Ducks' goalie, The Chiefs' goalie appears to help out Newman. Then a shot change to the Hansen brothers on the bench. The next shot shows the Chiefs' goalie fighting in the background nowhere near Newman. One shot later the Chiefs' goalie is back closer to Newman.
Continuity mistake: The starting line-up is introduced in the beginning of the movie. The Charleston chiefs have #4 and #5 on defence, while the Forward line is #'s 7, 10 & 14. A few seconds after the puck is dropped for the opening face-off a #15 appears on the ice for Charleston. Obviously too many men on the ice.
Plot hole: During the intermission break of the championship game, Joe shouts about scouts from the NHL in the stands waiting to sign up the team. But Reggie is mystified about this before sending his team out to get rough again. Why doesn't the coach of his own team know about people from the NHL waiting to sign his players up?
