Mike Eruzione, out of Boston University, the captain of this team, has just put he US ahead for the first time!
On the back of his shirt, the player typically called "Kharlamov" in the west, has his name spelled as "Charlamov", which is correct. Sometimes the announcers would pronounce his name "Harlamov". In Russian, when a kh comes at the beginning of a word, it is pronounced like an h. If spelled with "ch" it would be pronounced as "Sharlamov", which almost no one (in the movie or real life) got correct. The "C" in the Russian alphabet is analogous to "S" in the Roman alphabet.
During the closing credits of the film, each actor is shown on screen with the name of the player he portrayed along with a "where are they now" update.
