Character mistake: At one point in the movie, the commentators mention that the last time the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup was in 1960. The Blackhawks last won it in 1961.
Character mistake: You can see many of the "terrified" people smiling when running through the arena hallways.

Vice President: You have no idea of the complexity.Joshua Foss: I had an idea, I had this idea, and we are gonna make it work or we're gonna die trying. You will call the President, and on flash precedence priority, he will call the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the Treasury. Then banks will be notified, and the money will begin to move. Or it won't. And if it doesn't, when the game ends, everyone in this box and in this arena will die by explosion, fire and panic.
It seems that an awful lot of time and effort was taken in planning this caper, what with all the bombs planted throughout the arena and all, but the terrorist were pulling this during game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. What if the series ended at game six in Chicago?
At the time of the movie's release, nearly all the players from the Pitsburgh Penguins depicted in the film (Luc Robitaille, Ulf Samelsson, Greg Hawgood, etc), were no longer with the Penguins. They were all either traded, went free agent or released.
