Hockey star won three “olympic medals with USA


United States forward Meghan Duggan shares Team USA’s secret to success and how good it felt to win against rival Canada.

After a 14-year career with the U.S. women’s national hockey team, captain Meghan Duggan announced her retirement on Tuesday.

“But it’s certainly an emotional one as well. It was
