It’s a gold medal for the United States women’s hockey team, after their dramatic 3-2 win over Canada in a shootout early this morning in PyeongChang, South Korea. The team is captained by Danvers native Meghan Duggan, who went to the University of Wisconsin and now has a gold medal to go with her two silver medals, won in Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014. Kali Flanagan from Burlington is also a member of the U.S. team.
