That was the 'Peterboro game', filmed at the Aud .

"It's their rink, it's their ice, and it's their ****in' town. But tonight we got our fans with us!
They spent their own dough to get here, and they came here to see us! All right, let's show 'em what we got, guys! Get out there on the ice and let 'em know you're there. Get that ****in' stick in his side. Let 'em know you're there! Get that lumber in his teeth. Let 'em know you're there!"

According to Wikipedia:

"[Slapshot] was filmed in (and loosely based around) Johnstown, Pennsylvania and utilized several players from the then-active North American Hockey League Johnstown Jets (the team for which Dowd himself played) as extras. The Carlson Brothers and Dave Hanson also played for the Jets in real life. Many scenes were filmed in the Cambria County War Memorial Arena[9] and Clinton Arena, the Clinton Comets' home ice, the Utica Memorial Auditorium (used as "Peterboro" where the pre-game fight occurs and where the Hanson's reprimand the referee for talking during the anthem), Onondaga County War Memorial in Syracuse, NY(used as "Hyannisport" where the Hanson Brothers charge into the stand to accost a fan and are subsequently arrested), and in other Johnstown locales. Coincidentally, the Johnstown Jets, and the NAHL, folded in 1977, the year Slap Shot was released."

"Although much of the movie takes place during the Fall and Winter seasons, when hockey is in season, filming at the Utica War Memorial took place during the month of July."

I remember them shooting over near Ferrone's gas station many years ago. They were shooting on the corner of Albany and Rutger. I kinda remember something about War Games 2 although not 100% sure. Does anybody else remember that?
Yes I rememeber that We were in that we had to pretend there was some war started and we all had to run for cover>>

The film was shot in '85 or '86 under the title THE WAR GAME 2 (a sequel of sorts to a 1960s documentary about nuclear war), but it was never released theatrically in the US. The entire thing, which ran about 16 hours, was shown once at Utica College. Today the film is known under two titles: RESAN and THE JOURNEY, and is (or was) available for rent on video from www.facets.com . I played 3 small roles in the movie, but still have never seen it.
