The US team is full of Boston-linked talent. Many have played at the Beanpot schools, highlighted by Northeastern’s Kendall Coyne and Boston College’s Alex Carpenter, who scored the OT winner in last year’s gold medal game. Others have played for either the Boston Blades, the Pride or both. There are also locals who have been regulars on Team USA like captain Meghan Duggan. The others have trained in the area before the last Olympics.
