Counts in my book! My daughter used to work at the Huntington Theatre. I went there and said "Cool, you are just down the block from Symphony Hall". Then I looked out back and said "Is that a hockey arena?". She couldn't believe it when I came back the next time with a camera to get a picture of the outside.
Yes, it is the oldest operating hockey arena in the world. It started in 1910 and was the first home of the Bruins. It was renovated around 1980. It was home to a lot of teams, Harvard, Boston University etc... until they built their own rinks and moved out. Looks like the players benches are on opposite sides, like the Old Boston Garden.
