The true story of Herb Brooks, the player-turned-coach who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team to victory over the seemingly invincible Russian squad.
To avoid confusion during filming, Kurt Russell referred to the hockey players, cast as Team USA, exclusively by their corresponding characters' names or nicknames, not their real names. For the most part, the Team USA actors maintained this policy among themselves also.
You keep playing this way, you won't beat anybody who's even good, let alone great! You wanna make this team? Then you better start playing at a level that's gonna FORCE ME to keep you here! AGAIN!
The net design is not consistent with actual footage of the game.
During the final Walt Disney Pictures logo, you hear Herb say, "Again," then a whistle blows and the logo goes off.
