Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, Goaltender Denis Lemieux is on Jim Carr's show demonstrating the different types of penalties. When he shows us what spearing is, that was actually butt-ending. Spearing is done when you use the other end of your stick; the blade end.
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!
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.
