The story takes the battle of the sexes into the hockey arena, as Paula Taymore - who almost once made the Olympic team - finds herself drawn into a challenge match against an irritating local men's squad. Fresh from a painful divorce, and doubting herself, Paula must make a winner out of an explosive, irreverent crew of women hockey players who flock to her town, Red Deer Alberta, to assemble the team.

In the final match the announcer says "the third and final quarter". The parts of a hockey game are called "periods". If you played three quarters you'd never play a "full" game. It might have been a "deliberate error" as the announcer did state that she had never announced a hockey game before. See more »
Very predictable 'girls vs. guys' sports movie.....
This was a very predictable, almost boring sports movie with a 'girls vs. guys' theme. Jason Priestly's character was a token...just a way to get some 'star' power in this low-budget made-for-Canadian-TV movie. There were references to 'betting' on the game, but there were never any scenes of anyone actually betting. There were 'accusations' of the 'Felli' character 'padding' the score, but nothing beyond a casual mention. The money raised by the ladies' team was supposedly absconded with, but there was never any resolution regarding the final disposition of the supposedly stolen funds. Lots of holes in the plot. Lots of unresolved issues. Not a terribly unpleasant way to spend an hour and a half on a rainy weekday afternoon when I am laid off my construction job because of inclement weather.
