If Drew Doughty has a regret regarding the 2014 Winter Olympics, it's that he didn't score on his Los Angeles Kings teammate, Jonathan Quick.

Doughty was representing Canada while Quick played for the U.S. in the nation's semifinals matchup. "I remember there were a few chances I had on Quickie, and he made the save, and we kind of just had a big smile back to each other," Doughty said. "I was chirping him a little bit. But it was just all in fun. I really wanted to score on him, and I'm disappointed I didn't." Doughty is happy with his performance in the Olympics and obviously it had a happy end for him given that Canada won gold.

On one hand, Drew Doughty is proud to be a part of Team Canada in the Olympic Games.

On the other, the Los Angeles defenseman is concerned that the break is coming at a bad time for the Kings. The Kings go into the 19-day Olympic break with something they haven't had for a while - momentum - since their 2-1 win over Columbus Thursday was just their second in 11 games and sixth in 22 tries dating back to before Christmas. "I don't know if it comes at a good time or not," Doughty said of the break. "Maybe it will be good to get a reset. But at the same time we're losing games. We need to get more work in. Practice would help."
