Trivia The movie is loosely based on the 1905 Stanley Cup game between the Dawson City Nuggets and the Ottawa Senators. See more »
Goofs Before the final game at the end of the movie, Little Richard sings the American anthem then, offscreen, is heard singing the beginning of the Canadian anthem, though there is no need to do so, as the game is in Alaska and features two American teams. However, this was intentionally arranged (along with the very long rendition of the American anthem) by the Mayor of Mystery, to prolong the pre-game ceremonies and to let the Rangers freeze even longer.

Quotes Bailey Pruitt: [questioning a witness in court] You don't like our little town very much, do you Mr. Walsh?
Mr. Walsh: I have nothing against your town, Mr. Pruitt.
Bailey Pruitt: Did you say, "What the fuck-ass fuck of a bum-fuck shithole town is this?"
