Events at Olympic Center
The Olympic Center in Lake Placid will forever be remembered for the 1980 “Miracle on Ice,” when the U.S. Olympic Hockey team, which consisted of young college players, defeated the powerhouse Russian team and later went on to win the gold medal. In honor of that tremendous accomplishment, the ice arena has been renamed Herb Brooks Arena to honor the team’s late coach.
The final moments of that win over the USSR has been replayed countless times with announcer Al Michaels asking, “Do you believe in miracles?” It’s often forgotten that the game against the Soviet Union didn’t win the gold medal for the U.S. - they still had to defeat Finland before Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig and the rest of the team could take the gold.
The Olympics may be gone, but the Olympic Center is still home to numerous hockey games and figure staking events, including the Smucker’s Stars on Ice Tour. If you need Olympic Center hockey ticketsd or Olympic Center figure skating tickets, Gotickets is the way to go.
