Factual error: The science teacher makes a water molecule and claims it makes up "96% of the human body." This is simply wrong. Depending on the person, it usually ranges between 70-80%, with around 15-18% of us being carbon.

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when Gordon Bombay is coaching D-5, there would be no way this team would be permitted to play with the lack of and/or outdated hockey equipment.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.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie is taking the penalty shot in the championship game against the Hawks, you can see his shot is low to the ground but in the very next camera shot it shows that his shot hit the top corner of the net.

Trivia: When Coach Bombay is talking to the old store owner guy while he sharpens a skate and whatnot, there is a picture of Mike Modano hanging up behind them. Modano was the Minnesota North Star's first overall pick in the 1988 entry draft. He even stayed with them when they moved to Dallas in 1993.
