The Herb Brooks Arena (formerly known as the Olympic Center) is where one of ice hockey's greatest moments took place. The arena was home to the USA vs. USSR match at the 1980 Olympics and the USA pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the games. After Brooks' death in 2003, the Olympic Center was renamed in his honor. The impressive facility is composed of four skating rinks and hosts a variety of events throughout the year at this 7700-seat venue.
