Continuity mistake: A shot of the chiefs' bench shows Newman on the left and Ontkean on the right. Ontkean says "I can't believe my frigging eyes." Neither can I. The next 2 rapid camera cuts show Ontkean on Newman's left, then on Newman's right again.
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.
Jim Carr: Andre "Poodle" Lussier, defense. Andre, as you know, has been living in semi-seclusion in Northern Quebec ever since the unfortunate Denny Pratt tragedy.
Morris Wanchuk: Not Poodle.
Jim Carr: And from Mile 40, Saskatchewan, where he now runs a donut shop, number 10, former penalty-minute record holder for the years 1960 to 1968 inclusive, Gilmore Tuttle.
McGrath: Every scout in the NHL is out there tonight, with contracts in their pockets, and they're looking for talent. For winners. oooooooooh. All my years of publicity. All the fashion shows and radiothons for nothing... They come here tonight... to scout the Chiefs... the toughest team in the Federal League! Not this! Buncha... pussies."
