Former Badger Duggan has score to settle in Sochi
You might remember Olympian Meghan Duggan from her hockey days as a Wisconsin Badger. She was one of the leaders of Mark Johnson's teams.
Duggan realizes that she has unfinished business at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
"I'm proud to be a Badger, always. I'm always keeping track of what's going on out in Madison. We try to represent our university well, represent our country well. Being in Madison, going to school there were some of the best four years of my life, playing under Mark Johnson. He really developed me as a player," Duggan told TODAY'S TMJ4.

Duggan brings plenty of success and experience to Team USA. She left college with the Patty Kazmaier trophy, which goes to the best women's hockey player in America.
She likes the 2014 Olympic team's chances.
"We have a great group of girls here. We're peaking at the right time, coming together at the right time, excited and looking forward to the journey ahead," said Duggan.

Just like the men's team, the women's squad have the same road block ahead of them, the team who beat them for the gold medal in Vancouver: Canada.
"There's a huge rivalry between us and Canada. We face each other the most out of any international teams. We did have an upset against Finland earlier this year, and they're our first game in Sochi. No matter who we're playing, we have to take all our competitors, put them on the same plane, and we have to play our game."
