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 »
Being a female hockey player myself, I found this movie very cute. I would love to play a game of guys vs. girls. As a girl in Colorado, hockey is not a big HS sport, and because of that, not many girls play the sport and the ones who do usually play on guys teams. I have watched probably every hockey movie out there Mystery, Alaska, Mighty Ducks: 1,2,3 , Slap Shot: 1&2, Miracle, there are probably more but I can't think of them. Mighty ducks always had at least one to two girls on the team but it wasn't just about them and they hardly payed attention to the fact that there were girls on the team. This movie shows that there are women hockey players who can be devoted to this sport. And, they don't fit the typical "manly" label that every body puts onto women hockey players, even Felli, the goalie.
I know people are surprised when I tell them I play hockey, from now on I will tell them to check out this movie when they don't believe me.
