Six of the Greatest “Motivational” Lines from Movie Hockey Scenes
May 11, 2016
It’s common to hear Ozzie Osbourne and AC/DC before the start of a hockey game. Why? Because it amps up the players and gets their blood boiling for the game. In the movies, coaches, players, and even a caveman, have come up with something better than heavy metal music to get psyched up – they created their own sayings. Below are six of the greatest “motivational” lines ever uttered on the ice…in the movies that is.
Miracle (2004) – “Again”
Wayne’s World (1992) – “Game on”
Encino Man (1992) – “Wheeze the juice”
Happy Gilmore (1996) – “That’s my puck”
Slap Shot (1977) – BAM, POW, SLASH (The Hanson brothers let their fists do the talking)
The Mighty Ducks (1992) – “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
And just in time for the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, HDNET MOVIES is bringing you all three Slap Shot films on Saturday, May 14th:
