    Movie Quotes: Murray Chadwick: All right, one period left.

    Trivia: There are 7 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Keanu Reeves had hockey experience upon being cast, having been MVP and nicknamed “The Wall” for his goal-tending capabilities at De La Salle's college team in Toronto. Patrick Swayze had been trained as a figure skater but never played hockey, and 'Rob Lowe (I)' had to be taught to ice skate before filming began.
    • Peter Zezel and Steve Thomas at the time of filming were in fact actual professional NHL players. In the film, they play for the Hamilton Mustangs and in real life they both played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
    • In the scene where Ed Lauter is talking to his assistant coach while the players warm up, he mutters “Three Blind Mice” as the referee and linesmen appear on the ice. That term was actually used by players and coaches to describe how badly referees officiate games.
