* CallingTheOldManOut: After Banks is carted off the ice on a stretcher having been cross-checked by [=McGill=] on orders from Riley, Bombay realizes just how little Riley thought of him while he [[WellDoneSonGuy beat himself up over his missed penalty shot for the past 20 years]]. That leads to this exchange:
---> '''Riley:''' (''talking to his team'') They score against us[[note]]Banks managed to score despite being cross-checked[[/note]], they're gonna pay the price. Now don't worry, we're gonna get that one back. (''Bombay approaches the Hawks bench'') You got something to say to me Bombay?
---> '''Bombay:''' To think I wasted all those years worrying about what you thought. (''pause'') You're going down, Riley.

* ThePerfectionist: Gordon Bombay the lawyer at the start of D1. His crooning of his 30-0 record and immediate disavowal of [[NoodleIncident the Frasier case because he "scored with the court reporter" with the "intelligent body"]] speaks to Bombay's outlook at that point in the plot. It was probably something he got from his old coach Jack Riley, who bemoans the lone second-place banner from the 1973 season among the sea of championship banners just prior to Bombay the coach's first game against the Hawks.

* SecondPlaceIsForLosers: The philosophy of Hawks' coach Jack Riley, something which he instilled and lingered in Bombay the young player and into Bombay the lawyer.
---> '''Riley''': Remember, it's not worth playing...

** How Reilly treats children's hockey, to the point where he orders one of his players to freaking ''injure'' Banks, badly enough that Banks has to be taken out on a stretcher.



* WellDoneSonGuy: Bombay at the start of D1 - in his case it's Coach Riley and later his boss Ducksworth since his actual dad died when he was young.

This never happens in the sequels and is never even brought up again.again, though in the second movie, his parents seem to be operating a deli together; possibly they were getting divorced, then changed their minds.



* WhoNeedsOvertime: Played straight for the first and third films - the second one it's averted in the sense that [[spoiler: though the game went to a shootout instead of a traditional sudden-death overtime it's still extra play that was required due to a tie score after regulation.]]

** [=D2=]: [[spoiler:Russ, pretending to be Goldberg since Iceland had been swarming him every time he got on the ice as a normal skater, launches his knucklepuck unimpeded and gets it past the Iceland goalie to tie the score at 5 at the end of the third period. The game goes to a five-round shootout with the US going first; after four rounds each side nets three. Banks pots his attempt for the US, then Bombay pulls Goldberg and puts Julie in who gloves Gunnar Stahl's shot to win.]]

** Dean and Fulton considers Kenny Wu an official "Bash Brother" after standing up to the Iceland player who broke his stick over Banks' wrist. This carries on into D3, where Dean consoles Kenny, calling him his "bash brother" after both were given very questionable penalties.

* DownToTheLastPlay: The first film ends with a penalty shot just after the end of regulation.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: In D2, Russ' "Knucklepuck." Stansson's best strategy was essentially either mobbing Russ or catching him before he could get a shot off. As soon as Bombay found a way around this (Disguising Russ as the goalie) and Russ had a clear shot, Stansson could only let out a BigNo as the "knucklepuck" soared past the baffled Iceland goalie to tie the game and send it to a shootout.

* [[ForgotICouldFly Forgot I Could Stop]]: Either this, or Luis apparently didn't refine his stopping skills between D2 and D3, as he goes right back to being a classic FragileSpeedster: Fantastic speed, absolutely ''NO'' breaks.

* BigGuyLittleGuy: A two-to-one example with the "Bash Brothers", big guys Dean and Fulton, and little guy Kenny Wu, who we find out in no less scrappier than his big "brothers" after learning an important lesson from Russ's brother in D2.

* {{Fanservice}}: In ''3'', Dean is sent to the penalty box and immediately starts stripping off his clothes and equipment (likely a ShoutOut to ''SlapShot''). The announcer immediately lampshades it.
