On the very day the USA Olympic Hockey Team pulled off its improbable upset of the powerhouse Soviet Union at the 1980 Olympic Games, the hometown of coach Herb Brooks celebrated a different kind of monument to teamwork. Thanks to a donation from the Minnesota Wild, U.S. Bank, and the EZ Ice rink company from Boston, the Herb Brooks Foundation (HBF) received a donation of a new outdoor ice rink. The 100×60 foot natural ice rink is located outdoors at the Conway Recreation Center in Saint Paul, near to where coach Herb Brooks grew up on the east side of Saint Paul.
