When the game ended, the score was 31-2. When you see the scoreboard again, the score was 32-2.
Both the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche feature a significant amount of Canadian players on their roster, but all players were drawn in the American style instead of the Canadian "flapping head" style.
Since the Avalanche were the home team they should have been wearing maroon and blue jerseys, while the Red Wings should have been wearing white jerseys. Also, most of the fans shown were Red Wings fans even though Avalanche were at home. The fact that Red Wings and Avalanche have one of the NHL's biggest rivalries could've spurred the writers to purposefully write-in this error to aggrivate nitpicking fans of the respective teams.
The South Park Gazette has "Established 1997" written on its sign. This is reference to the fact that South Park first aired in the year 1997.
This is the only season that Kenny never died, not counting Season 6 because he was only in the last episode "Red Sleigh Down." However, he did die on-line in 'Make Love, Not Warcraft'.
The little kid with cancer's hockey jersey number is "13" which can symbolize bad luck.
The song that was playing when the Red Wings won was, We Are the Champions by Queen.
Season 10 is now the second season to air all of its episodes in production order. The first was season 9.
This is the first episode to feature Stan's name in the title.
This episode is the last of the 10th season, and marks the third season not to have a Christmas episode. (The others are seasons 5 and 9), and this is the first time a christmas episode has been missed two years in a row.
The song playing during the Adams County-South Park game where the teams tie is "Song 2" by Blur.
The man who had the record player had the same kind of tone as with the Rob Schneider previews in the episode "The Biggest Douche in the Universe."
(at Park County hockey rink for the Park County vs. Adams County match)
Adams County team: (chanting and hitting hockey sticks on ice at ever chant) Win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win ..
(Stan pulls Gavin aside, Adams County team still chanting)
Stan: Coach can I talk to you for a second?
Gavin: Come to surrender, coach?
Stan: Look there's a kid on my team whose got cancer, and he wants us to win this game really bad, so could you just…give us kind of a break?
Gavin: Hah. I don't think so coach! We're going to beat you into the ground, cancer or no..(walks off beginning the chant again with his team) Win, win, win, win…
Adams County team: (chanting) Win, win, win, win, win, win…
(Stan leaving Nelson's hospital room after having a talk to him about his condition)
Nelson: Will you do me just one favour coach?
(Stan stops and turns around)
Nelson: The game tonight, I'm gonna be watching so could you...make it so I don't have cancer?
Stan: Na...Dude I told you I can't do that.
Nelson: Well then, would you just..win for me?
Stan: (looks down) Okay. (walks out of room)
(Stan visits the County regarding his towed bike)
Stan: (entering room) Hi my name is Stan Marsh, I was told to come down here and try to…
County Official: (interrupts) Yes come in Mr. Marsh, I've been told all about your case. (flicks through Stan's file) Impounded bicycle eighty-three dollars owed to the County. Maybe you should get a job.
Stan: (annoyed) I've got a job, but without my bike to do my paper route I can't make the money, see?
(County official reaches down and brings up a turntable
County Official: (moving needle on turntable, playing up-beat song) Stan Marsh is a bright young man, he's got a great family, a promising paper route, only problem is .. (moves needle off record, music stops) His bikes been impounded.. (moves needle back on record, new up-beat song plays) But now…he's about to find out, that getting his bike back isn't so easy (moves needle off record, music stops)
(camera cuts back to Stan who is standing there staring at the County official with a confused look)
Nelson: Coach, does God hate me?
Dr. Doctor: Oh hello Coach.
Stan: Oh hi Doc, how's he doing?
Dr. Doctor: Well he isn't worse, but he isn't getting better. It's almost as if his cancer were tied.
Announcer: Oh, it appears the goalie has pooped his pants.
Nelson: I can't play goalie.
Stan: Why not?!
Nelson: My doctor says I'm not supposed to.
Stan: What, you got asthma or something?
Kid: No, he has cancer.
Kid: Nelson has leukemia. It's already spread to his bone marrow.
Nelson: I don't wanna have cancer!
Park County #6: Coach, please don't let us lose to Adam's County. My daddy will beat me again.
Randy: Do you believe it Stan? Pepsi Center… it's the place where it all happened. Same place where you missed that shot all those years ago…
Stan: Dad, I'm working on my game plan right now.
Randy: You have to understand why I can't go. I can't sit there in that same crowd and watch you destroy yourself again. Oh… Stan. Of all the places… Why'd it have to be the Pepsi Center? Alright, alright. I'll go. No, no! I want to go. I'm gunna be there for you and I'll be rooting louder than anybody saying 'That's my son!' And just remember Stan. WIN or LOSE… Those are your two options. Win! or lose…
Nelson: (Sees the Red Wings win on the TV) No hope…..No hope. (He flat lines)
Pee Wee Kid: That other team is gonna kill us!
Stan: They're not gonna kill us!
Pee Wee Kid: That's what Steve Irwin said about the stingrays.
Randy: Stan! You're mother's been worried sick, and I've been watching TV!
Dr. Doctor: Just be aware of this coach. If you lose the big game, that little boy is gonna die faster than Steve Irwin in a tank full of stingrays.
Mr. Brown: I don't know what to say to him, Coach. Neither of us do. What do you say to... somebody who's dying, huh?
Stan: ... I don't know.
Mr. Brown: Will you talk to him, Coach? He looks up to you.
Stan: No, I think you oughta.
Mr. Brown: Nah, I'm just his father. But you're his coach! You're like a father to him.
Nelson: Coach, what's it like to die?
Stan: I don't know.
(After getting beat up by a Red Wing.)
Little Kid: I hate you coach.
Pee Wee Kid: (Referring to opponents) They look pretty strong Coach. I think Nelson's going to die for sure.
After receiving some criticism for referring to Steve Irwin's death in "Hell on Earth 2006" they decided to do it two more times in this episode. This episode along with "Hell on Earth 2006" was in the news.
Cartman and Kenny do not appear in this episode and Kyle is only in it for a short time.
Brand of the County Official's turntable is "Ternics", this is an allusion to Technics, a well-known brand of DJ equipment.
An ad for Lizardade can be seen around the hockey arena. This is a spoof of the popular sports drink, Gatorade.
The "Gotta Love It" phrase is a take on McDonald's current ad campaign of "I'm loving it" along with the upside-down golden arches which first appeared in Mystery of the Urinal Deuce.
The Street Warrior:
In Stan's room he has a poster of "The Street Warrior" which is a parody of the Mel Gibson movie Mad Max 2, or The Road Warrior. The man in the poster even has a knee brace, and a dog.
Man with record player:
This shtick is a parody of the trailers that are usually produced for movies of the kind that this episode parodies. Also, the man sounds like the man narrating Rob Schneider movie trailers in the South Park episode "The Biggest Douche in the Universe".
"Benny's" restaurant is a reference to the popular restaurant chain, Denny's.
At the beginning there are three newspapers on Mr. Jarvis' wall. The first one reads "Scuzzlebutt???" from the episode "Volcano". The second one reads "Smug Alert" most likely, and is a reference to "Smug Alert!". Finally, the last one reads "Local Inventor Hits Big" from "The Entity," where Mr. Garrison invents the IT machine.
The episode title is an allusion to the Stanley Cup, the championship trophy of the National Hockey League.
The Mighty Ducks:
This is a parody of the 1992 film The Mighty Ducks, where Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) fails to win in his pee wee hockey game to the champions. His past haunts him when he is forced to later coach the pee wee hockey team "The Mighty Ducks."
