TORONTO -- Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien and forward Kyle Palmieri are the odd men out for the United States in its World Cup of Hockey opener against Team Europe. The Fur Slide Acheter .Coach John Tortorella announced his lineup shortly before Saturdays game, confirming also that goaltender Cory Schneider would not dress.Its just the way it worked out, Tortorella said. Certainly (not that) Buff and Kyle didnt do the things we were looking for them to do, but as we went through our lineup and the situations that we may get involved with: power play, penalty killing and all that, we felt this was our lineup to start the tournament.Scratching Byfuglien means the U.S. wont have his big shot on the power play. The decision comes after the Winnipeg Jets All-Star played forward in the final exhibition game.Tortorella said earlier in the week that Byfuglien better be a weapon on the power play. The staff instead decided to stick with the six defensemen who played against Finland.Palmieri out means Justin Abdelkader will play against Europe. Tortorella says Abdelkader will be counted on to kill penalties and likes that the Detroit Red Wings forward brings grit around the net.Palmieri was an injury replacement for Ryan Callahan.Jonathan Quick starts in goal for the U.S., and Ben Bishop will back up. Jaroslav Halak starts for Europe with Philipp Grubauer backing up. Suede Heart Reset Bleu . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today.

Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The pitching matchup for Sundays game between the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium reflects the teams conflicting approaches to reconstructing their rosters.Right-hander Chad Green represents the Yankees immediate focus on youth. But another right-hander, the Angels Jhoulys Chacin, belongs to the squadron of stopgap solutions for an injury-riddled pitching staff.Green comes off one of the best performances by a starting pitcher in the Yankees history. In just his fifth major league start, Green the first 13 batters he faced, amassed 11 strikeouts in six shutout innings, conceded just two hits and issued no walks Monday night in a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.The 25-year-old compiled the most strikeouts by a Yankees rookie since Masahiro Tanaka struck out 11 Seattle Mariners in 2014. Green also became just the second rookie pitcher in team history to compile at least 11 strikeouts without permitting a walk or a run. Stan Bahnsen pitched a three-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts against the Boston Red Sox in 1968, the year he was named the American Leagues rookie of the year.Greens start Monday night marked the beginning of his fifth stint with the Yankees after being promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.Each time, he took his demotion the right way and said, OK, this is what I need to work on, and Im going to get better, New York manager Joe Girardi said. Hes got good stuff and his stuff has developed this year.Part of that development includes the rapid improvement of his slider.It was terrible, Green told the New York Times. It was pretty much non-existent. But the strides with that pitch have been huge. Puma Heart Patent Bleu. I didnt really change the grip too much. I think it was more like a mind-set. Just being more confident with it was huge.Chacin, meanwhile, has experienced little success after the Angels acquired him from the Atlanta Braves in May.The seven-year veteran has lost five consecutive starts since his last victory June 14. But after being sent to the bullpen in mid-season, Chacin collected 20 strikeouts in eight relief appearances covering 17 2/3 innings while allowing just five runs, 11 hits and five walks.When Chacin returned to the rotation, however, that effectiveness evaporated. In his two starts since his return, the right-hander gave up 11 runs, 13 hits, five walks and a hit batsman while collecting just two strikeouts and pitching only six total innings.Against the Mariners in his last start Tuesday night, Chacin threw 88 pitches in 4 2/3 innings, allowed four runs on seven hits, walked two, hit one and struck out two. Seattle scored all four of its runs against Chacin with two out.He had trouble closing out innings, Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. It usually comes down to one pitch. The more a team gets looks when theyre ahead in the count, theyre going to put better swings on pitches.The Angels will play without Yuniel Escobar, who began Saturday ranked second in the American League with a .320 average and ninth with a .368 on-base percentage. The veteran third baseman went on the seven-day disabled list for concussions after bunting a ball off his nose in the fourth inning of a 7-0 loss Friday night.
