Continuity mistake: When Gordon's long-time friend shows him the hockey skates he'd like him to put on, he's holding them with his fingers on the laces and his thumbs underneath. The camera angle changes, and now his thumbs are on the laces with his fingers underneath. It goes back and forth like this several times.Matty Blast
Continuity mistake: When Bombay is out of the limo which is on the ice, he is reading his list of players. He says, "Conway, Charlie. Averman, Dave." There was a Dave on the team, but that was not Averman's first name.
Continuity mistake: The flashback in the film's opening sequence shows coach Riley telling Gordon, "If you miss this shot, you're not just letting me down, you're letting your whole team down". Later in the film when this flashback is revisited, Riley now says this sentence in reverse "If you miss this shot, you're not just letting your team down, you're also letting me down too".mightymick
Continuity mistake: When Tammy and Tommy first join the team and get their uniforms, Bombay helps Tammy get her shirt over her head. Her hair is tucked in the shirt. In the next shot before she talks to Tommy, her hair is above her shirt.
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie when Gordon Bombay is coaching D-5, there would be no way this team would be permitted to play with the lack of and/or outdated hockey equipment. Goldberg has no goalpads, most of his skaters have no full facial protection, no shin pads and the use of bike and football helmets. From at least 1980 all minor hockey programs required kids to wear full face protection.
Other mistake: Young Gordon misses the shot that would have won the game, but the game would have needed to be tied for that to be the case. Goalie skates off with his hands up and the game is over, so that means the shot he missed would have been to tie the game.
