TORONTO -- With the United States facing elimination against Canada at the World Cup of Hockey, coach John Tortorella chose to scratch two players hes very familiar with for the sake of what he hopes is the best lineup.Center Brandon Dubinsky and defenseman Jack Johnson will be scratched for the Americans must-win game against Canada on Tuesday night. Tortorella coaches those players in the NHL with the Columbus Blue Jackets and knows Dubinsky well from their time together with the New York Rangers.Winger Kyle Palmieri and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien replace Dubinsky and Johnson in the lineup after being out for the tournament-opening 3-0 loss to Team Europe. Jonathan Quick is expected to start in goal, with Ben Bishop backing up and Cory Schneider scratched.It kills me to take (Dubinsky) out because of how he competes, Tortorella said Tuesday morning. Its tough to scratch Jack Johnson, too. Its tough to scratch Cory Schneider. This is a really big game for USA Hockey, and to tell a couple guys, three guys, theyre not playing, that was hard.The United States must defeat Canada to remain alive in the tournament.Tortorella said the coaching staff agonized over the lineup decisions and combinations. Ultimately the group decided it wanted Palmieri, a 30-goal scorer, and Byfuglien, a big, physical force with a heavy shot, on the ice and on the power play.We hope (Byfuglien) scores a power-play goal, Tortorella said. He obviously was disappointed he didnt play the first game. I think hes really going to try to make a difference tonight. He needs to stay disciplined but also not test the waters and make a difference here.Dubinskys absence is a curious one given his experience shadowing Canadian captain Sidney Crosby throughout their careers. That job could now fall to David Backes or Ryan Kesler, who wants this to be as edgy a game as possible.Hopefully (the referees) let us play tonight, Kesler said.The U.S. needs to balance playing physical and finishing chances to score. Palmieri, an injury replacement for another Tortorella favorite, Ryan Callahan, is better at putting the puck in the net than putting an opponent into the glass.Palmieri doesnt mind being asked to do both.I think our team needs a little spark and hopefully I can go in there tonight and provide that, whether that be a goal and maybe a big hit, just a big play to get our team going tonight and get ourselves into it and just go from there, Palmieri said.Asked Sunday would it would mean to be in the lineup against Canada, Byfuglien said, Its everything.Getting Palmieri and Byfuglien in seemed like a no-brainer after the U.S. lacked quality scoring chances against Europe on Saturday. Choosing to sit two Blue Jackets players who have long histories with USA Hockey stood out, but Tortorella said that wasnt part of the consideration.No, I cant bring that into the process here, Tortorella said. Thats unfair. We have our 23 guys no matter whos coaching them. Its just for this team, this game, and we made the decision to go this way.Carey Price starts in goal for Canada, with Corey Crawford backing up and Braden Holtby scratched. Canada is expected to stick with the same lineup it used in a 6-0 rout of the Czech Republic on Saturday, which means forward Claude Giroux and defenseman Jake Muzzin out.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno .

Cody Allen Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. NEW YORK -- The San Francisco Giants headed into the All-Star break a major league-best 57-33.They started the second half by skidding on a 1-7 trip to San Diego, Boston and New York that culminated in a 5-2 loss Sunday to the Yankees.Im very excited about to get home, Jeff Samardzija said after dropping to 1-2 with a 7.29 ERA and nine home runs allowed in his last six starts. Obviously, this road trip didnt go the way we wanted it to, but you learn from this. We got some guys who got some playing time. And you use this for the future. The season isnt always going to go the way you want it to from start to finish. So, were going to go home and regroup and put this behind us.Right fielder Hunter Pence (hamstring), second baseman Joe Panik (concussion) and third baseman Matt Duffy (strained Achilles tendon) are sidelined, first baseman Brandon Belt was 2 for 33 (.061) on the trip and shortstop Brandon Crawford 6 for 33 (.182) with no RBI.We had some guys cold with the bat, manager Bruce Bochy said. Well go as they go.San Francisco was 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position Sunday, leaving the NL West leader at 9 for 72 (.125) following the break.Ive got to find the approach to get back on track, Belt said. I feel like a lot of these losses that weve had are on me. Ive had plenty of chances to drive in runs, didnt get the job done.San Franciscos lineup included rookie Mac Williamson in right, Ramiro Pena at second and Conor Gillaspie at third. Rookie Trevor Brown caught to give Buster Posey a day at designated hitter after Saturdays 12-inning win.A makeshift batting order also will be used when the Giants open a homestand Monday against Cincinnati, last in the NL Central at 38-60.You obviously see what happens with the hole in the lineup. Three middle guys arent in the middle of the lineup, Belt said. Obviously, we havent done well this road trip, myself especially. But I dont think the reason is because were putting too much pressure on ourselves. Were just all slumping at the same time.Samardzija (9-6) gave up five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He allowed home runs to Carlos Beltran in the first and Mark Teixeira in the second, raising his season total to 19, as New York built a 2-0 lead.New York chased Samardzija in the sixth, when Jacoby Ellsbury grounded into a run-scoring double play, Starlin Castro singled in a run and Didi Gregorius hit an RBI double.ddddddddddddHed make a mistake, and they didnt miss it. Bochy said. But really, he was pitching as well as Ive seen him for three innings. It just got away from him.Nathan Eovaldi (9-6) pitched shutout ball into the seventh. With the Yankees No Runs DMC trio unavailable after two days of heavy use, Chasen Shreve came in and loaded the bases with a walk to Belt, and Posey poked an opposite-field, two-run single to right against Chad Green, who retired Brandon Crawford on a groundout.New York turned a spectacular 4-1-5 inning-ending double play in the eighth. Pena grounded past a diving Teixeira at first but Castro slid on his stomach to come up with the ball on the outfield grass between first and second, sat up and threw to Green covering first. The pitcher then threw to third, where Chase Headley tagged a sliding Williamson.Youve got to play according to the scoreboard, Bochy said. He plays all out. We love his energy and his enthusiasm, but we just cant get thrown out there three runs down with two out.THE OLD DAYSOn a sunny afternoon with a 93-degree game-time temperature, Bochy remembered how players used to deal with heat during his playing days.We wore cabbage leafs in our hat, and some guys put them in your shoes. Its a leaf and you put it right in your hat, and it keeps your head cool, he said. I havent seen that since, I want to say probably `79 or `80. Philadelphia. I remember wearing them there, on the turf.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: Pence was 1 for 3 with an RBI single and grounded into a double play in the first game of Triple-A Sacramentos doubleheader Sunday. ... Panik hasnt played for the Giants since June 27 and has not been on the field for Sacramento since appearances Tuesday and Wednesday. Hes doing all baseball activities, Bochy said. He just feels like its cleared up, so it looks like weve turned the corner on him.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jake Peavy (5-8) starts Monday for the Giants and Anthony DeSclafani (5-0) for Cincinnati. Peavy is 7-1 in 13 starts against the Reds. Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Stitched Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '
