SOCHI, Russia - Based on Jeff Carter's hat trick and Drew Doughty's game-opening goal in Canada's 6-0 Olympic victory over Austria on Friday, you'd never know the Kings are one of the NHL's lowest-scoring teams. Carter, who began Friday's game as Canada's 13th forward, and standout defenseman Doughty have managed to leave the Kings' offensive struggles behind in North America.

As a child, Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter didn't hear many stories about his father, Bob, winning a gold medal as a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team. "Every teacher that I had, they were telling me all about it and wanted me to bring the medal in to school as often as I could," Ryan said. "I didn't know that much about it when I was younger, so they were more excited about it than I was. And that's where I learned how special it was. " No U.S. men's team has won gold since Coach Herb Brooks' underdog team upset the mighty Soviets and beat Finland in the Miracle on Ice, though Ryan's team lost to Canada in the 2010 finale at Vancouver.

Despite Ryan Seacrest spending hours on the red carpet talking couture lifestyle with platinum-selling music stars, it was the artists who celebrated second-hand culture who busted through the pomp to win many of the 56th Grammy Awards' most coveted trophies. In fact, at times the ceremony Sunday at Los Angeles' Staples Center felt like a night for the underdogs - at least as much as anyone standing before millions of viewers on music's biggest stage can be considered such. A young woman from New Zealand, Lorde, who this time last year was gigging at small clubs, arrived in a no-name sleeveless tee to celebrate diamondless lives in "Royals.
