Sudden Death

Revealing mistake: There are many shots in the supposedly sold out arena showing quite a lot of empty seats or obvious prop standouts of people in the seats.

Revealing mistake: When McCord climbs to the top of the arena he fights with a guy patrolling the rooftop. He then kicks the guy over the edge, but the way the guy falls back shouldn't have sent him sliding down the roof.

Plot hole: When the game goes into Sudden Death, the teams are seen taking a brief timeout at the benches. The only problem here is: during the Stanley Cup playoffs, whenever a game heads into OT, the ice has to be resurfaced and both teams are sent to the dressing room. If this had happened, the Penguins would certainly have noticed that their dressing room was bullet-riddled from the fight that occurred earlier and would have - at the very least - figured something was up.

Trivia: 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.
