Slap Shot (1977)

A failing minor-league hockey team resorts to violence and shenanigans to increase their popularity.  Wild bloody fun on the ice-- great hockey characters like ice-maniac Ogie Ogilthorpe and Clarence 'Screaming Buffalo' Swamptown.  Many of the actors in this film were professional hockey players, so this is considered by many to be kind of an inside-joke of the hockey world.  Hugely entertaining.  The childlike and ultra-violent Hanson Brothers are not to be missed.
