Doughty will be heading to the Olympics for Canada for the second time in his young career.

ST. LOUIS - Kings defenseman Drew Doughty recalled how he got the news about making Team Canada for the 2010 Olympics and it sounded as if it happened just the other day.

I'll always remember that.” Doughty was talking after Thursday's morning skate here. Canada will name its Olympic squad on Tuesday, and meanwhile, two Kings players, captain Dustin Brown and goalie Jonathan Quick were named to the U.S. team on Wednesday.

The dismal state of affairs was underlined by a 5-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night at Scottrade Center. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter pulled rookie goalie Martin Jones in the second period after the Blues' second goal at 11 minutes 41 seconds and replaced him with Ben Scrivens, who gave up a goal on the first shot he faced and let in two more goals in the third period.

The game will feature a quarterback duel between No. 9 from Westlake High in Austin, Texas, and … No. 9 from Westlake High in Austin, Texas. Not only do they share the same number, but Drew Brees of the Saints and Nick Foles of the Eagles share the same high school alma mater. It's the Halley's Comet of NFL coincidences, with the last such occurrence being in 1974, when Pittsburgh played Buffalo in a first-round game showcasing the Steelers' Terry Bradshaw and the quarterback who succeeded him at Woodlawn High in Shreveport, La., Joe Ferguson of the Bills.

CHICAGO -- Defenseman Drew Doughty was pondering why the Kings have had so much trouble against the Blackhawks in Chicago. Then again, who hasn't? The Kings are hardly alone as plenty of teams have struggled at the United Center. "In the past, our team hasn't really shown up for most games at the 'Madhouse,' here or whatever it's called," he said after Monday's morning skate. "We need to be able to show up. We have to be able to beat them in this rink and we haven't in the last five years.
