Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight make NBC 'Today' show appearance

Former Wisconsin women's hockey players Meghan Duggan and Hilary Knight appeared on NBC's "Today" show and the NHL Network's "NHL Live" this week as they prepare for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

Former Wisconsin women's team standouts Hilary Knight and Meghan Duggan have been the face of the U.S. Women's Olympic Hockey Team this week as the squad made a media blitz to mark 100 days until the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

U.S. teammate Julie Chu has also been making the rounds, but while she seemed to be talking about the Olympics in general, Duggan and Knight focused on promotion women's hockey at the 2014 games.

One of the major highlights was Tuesday, when the pair of former Badgers stopped by the set of NBC's "Today" show, where they did a segment with Hoda and guest co-host Anthony Mackie.

The "Today" show wasn't their only television appearance this week, as Knight and Duggan were also featured on "NHL Live," which is NHL Network's hit afternoon show.

Knight and Duggan also sat down for an interview with NHL.com, and even stopped by the NHL store to do a Q & A with young fans.

They also stopped by the "You Can Play" offices, and impressed Patrick Burke.

Knight is also the subject of a feature story on USAHockey.com. The last time around in Vancouver, Knight was the team's youngest player at 20 years old. This year, the team could feature a 16-year-old and Knight is a veteran at 24. It's a very different dynamic for Team USA .

If you don't already follow them, both ladies are on Twitter and their feeds are littered with pictures from their last two days' appearances. You can find them at @mduggan10 and @Hilary_Knight.

With so many former Badgers set to suit up for the United States and Canada in Sochi, we plan to bring you extended coverage this winter here at Bucky's 5th Quarter. The games are just 100 days away, so it's time to get back into the Olympic spirit.
