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!
A team of ringers is brought in to outfight the Chiefs. It turns into a massive brawl with no hockey at all. The player who had been against all the brawling in the first place starts skating around the ice stripping as he goes. The other players, announcer and crowd all react like he is making a mockery of the sport. Paul Newman understands that he is really making no more a mockery of the sport then they were by fighting all the time.
Trivia: 2 of the 3 Hanson brothers are related (Jeff and Steve Carlson). Originally, their brother Jack was supposed to be the 3rd Hanson, but at the time filming started, Jack was called up by the Edmonton Oilers of the World Hockey Association. Their teammate, Dave Killer Hanson replaced Jeff and Jerry Houser replaced Dave Hanson and became Dave Killer Carlson.
