Slap Shot

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.

Continuity mistake: A shot of the chiefs' bench shows Newman on the left and Ontkean on the right. Ontkean says "I can't believe my frigging eyes." Neither can I. The next 2 rapid camera cuts show Ontkean on Newman's left, then on Newman's right again.
