SOCHI, Russia - Canada has an unequaled group of centers. Sweden, though depleted up front by injuries, has fine goaltending. Finland boasts an unshakable team ethic that clicks in whenever its players reunite. And Russia, blessed with enormous skill, bears the equally large burden of living up to a glorious history that may never be duplicated. What Team USA will bring to the Olympic hockey tournament when it faces Slovakia at Shayba Arena on Thursday is more difficult to summarize.

  A stoppable force met a movable object Monday at Staples Center. For the uninitiated, that would be the free-falling Kings and their punchless offense against the struggling Chicago Blackhawks and their porous defense. It was billed as a matchup of the last two Stanley Cup champions, though you couldn't have proven that by the way the teams have played lately, with the Kings averaging 1 1/2 goals a week and the Blackhawks having lost five of their last six. But this being the NHL somebody had to win, and Chicago proved the best of the worst when Marcus Kruger's second-period slap shot from just inside the blue line struck the stick of defenseman Matt Greene and tumbled over the left shoulder of Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, breaking a 2-2 tie and sparking the Blackhawks to a 5-3 win. SUMMARY: Chicago Blackhawks 5, Kings 3 "We had a 2-2 game, we had the momentum," Kings captain Dustin Brown said.

Zach Parise of the Minnesota Wild was appointed captain of the U.S. men's hockey team for the upcoming Sochi Olympics, with Kings captain Dustin Brown and Minnesota defenseman Ryan Suter appointed the alternate captains. Parise was an alternate captain of the 2010 U.S. team that won a silver medal at the Vancouver Olympics and was the captain of the New Jersey Devils before he left as a free agent to sign with the Wild. Team USA General Manager David Poile said the coaching staff had identified Parise as its choice for the captaincy through conversations during and after the brief orientation camp last summer.

Long before they had heard of Sochi, well before they made it to the NHL, the five men who comprise the leadership group of the U.S. Olympic hockey team crossed paths many times on many rinks. Fearless winger Dustin Brown grew up playing on B-level teams in small-town Ithaca, N.Y. He often competed against winger Ryan Callahan of Rochester, N.Y., a city big enough to have triple-A teams. One season, Callahan's coach borrowed Brown to play in the famed Quebec peewee tournament. Brown and Callahan teamed up again on state teams and in juniors in Guelph, Canada.

There was disorder and chaos most of Monday as the Kings faced the Vancouver Canucks, although an occasional minute or two went by without some variation of a penalty being called at Staples Center. The Kings beat the Canucks, 1-0, in one of the more strange, fight-filled games here this season, a game pleasing mostly to fans of "old-time hockey" and the close relatives of the referees, eager to see them get more TV time.   After 40 minutes of scoreless play, Kings captain Dustin Brown broke the deadlock a mere 24 seconds into the third period, putting the finishing touch on a three-on-break with Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter, beating Canucks goalie Eddie Lack with a backhander at the right post.

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. Not four years ago. “They told us to keep our phones on,” Doughty said. “So I had to put it on loud before I went to bed and it woke me up with a phone call. We were actually in Calgary. 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.

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick and forward Dustin Brown, as well as Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler, are among the 25 players on the U.S. roster for the Sochi Olympics, as announced after the Winter Classic game Wednesday. The biggest surprise was the omission of high-scoring winger and former Duck Bobby Ryan, but he might be among the designated alternates who could join the roster if one of the original choices is injured. Concerns about his skating and defensive abilities on the wider international ice surface might have played into the decision to leave him off the roster.
