Сообщение Brandon McCarthy pitched a four-hitter 
COPENHAGEN – It was bound to happen. With so many centres on the Canadian world junior roster some highly-skilled players were going to have to move. At Tuesdays practice it happened to be Jonathan Drouin, the third overall pick in last Junes NHL draft, and Connor McDavid, who is trying to become just the sixth 16-year-old to make the team. "We said earlier, when this all began, theres a chance when this all gets sorted that we have eight, nine centre icemen and guys have to get adjusted and McDavid may have to be one of those guys," head coach Brent Sutter said after the workout in Copenhagen, Denmark where the team has made camp this week. Sutter had McDavid on the left, draft-eligible Sam Reinhart on the right and Vancouver Canucks first rounder Bo Horvat in the middle on one new-look line. Drouin, who played left wing before shifting to centre with the Halifax Mooseheads this season, was back at his old position beside Nic Petan, Winnipegs second-round pick in June, and Curtis Lazar, who was picked 17th overall by Ottawa in the same draft. "I figured out pretty quick when I showed up here that theres pretty good centres here and they played there for a lot of years so, obviously, it doesnt really matter where they play me," Drouin said. "Not much different really. Ive been playing there [left wing] for so long." On Monday Drouin skated for the first time since sustaining a concussion on Dec. 6. That workout, however, was a short, more informal one with Sutter wanting to get the players legs going after a long journey to Europe. Tuesday was the first time Drouin, the only forward returning from last years squad, practised on a regular line. "With Petan not being a large specimen [5-foot-9, 166 pounds] we felt like having him and Drouin playing together, their skill and speed, would really be effective," said Sutter, "and only one of them could play centre so Drus certainly played the wing before so it made sense for us to have him on the wing right now." "I think me and Nic, we like to move the puck," Drouin said, "and Lasers a shooter, hes a big guy, a power forward a little bit and I think it should work pretty well." Unlike Drouin, McDavid doesnt have a history of playing on the wing, but didnt seem fazed by the challenge. "Im really excited about it," said McDavid, who has 12 goals and 38 assists in 31 games with the OHLs Erie Otters this season. "Wing is a little different than centre obviously, but at the end of the day if youre the first guy back you got to play down low. Bo and I talked about it. We have three centremen playing on the same line right now so we all know what were doing down low and the wing." If McDavid makes the squad he will be lining up against players, who are not just older, but also more physically mature. Sutter points out that using the 6-foot, 182-pound McDavid on the wing should make his life a bit easier. "McDavid doesnt need to be the guy whos handling everything down low," said Sutter. "We could use a bigger body down low in our zone [6-foot, 203-pound Horvat], but ... theyre three natural centre icemen and they can certainly read off each other." The other lines at Tuesdays practice at Rødovre Arena in the Danish capital were: Taylor Leier - Scott Laughton - Anthony ManthaHunter Shinkaruk - Felix Girard - Charles HudonKerby Rychel - Frederik Gauthier - Josh Anderson And it seems likely most, if not all, of the lines will stay together this week as Canada holds two more practices before the first pre-tournament game on Friday against Finland. Sutters plan is to make the three cuts – four if defenceman Morgan Rielly is loaned to the team by the Toronto Maple Leafs – after that game. "You got to get some kind of continuity going," Sutter explained. "Guys got to get the feel for each other, get some chemistry with each other. If we can keep our lines, get them working together, that would be a good thing. You always try and work in pairs. Usually there are two guys on a line working together so when you get into game situations you may only have to move one guy around." Some pairings have emerged early in Canadas selection camp, which started Friday in Toronto. McDavid and Reinhart have been together during every on-ice session as well as Leier-Laughton and Gauthier-Anderson. Petan and Lazar have been together in two practices and were only split-up on Saturday, because Petan didnt dress for a scrimmage against a group of Canadian Interuniversity Sport players. "Wed like to have these guys get to know each other and get some chemistry and I think it shows each day in practice," said Sutter. "They seem to be getting better and better and used to each other."

NEW YORK -- Brandon McCarthy pitched a four-hitter and the New York Yankees avoided a three-game sweep, beating the Houston Astros 3-0 Thursday. New York won for just the third time in 10 games. Chase Headley hit an early two-run double and the Yankees backed McCarthy with flawless fielding. The Yankees fans also made fine plays -- sitting in the first row behind the Houston dugout, comedian Chris Rock wound up with a foul ball off the bat of Astros rookie Jon Singleton, and he gave the souvenir to a young boy as the crowd cheered. McCarthy (5-2) outpitched Dallas Keuchel (10-9) as they both threw complete games without a walk. The Yankees had been shut out in McCarthys previous two starts. McCarthy struck out eight in his fourth career shutout and first this season. He was 3-10 with Arizona before being traded to the Yankees in July. Keuchel gave up seven hits and struck out five. The Astros had won three in a row overall. They were trying to become the first team to come into Yankee Staadium at least 20 games under .dddddddddddd00 and sweep a series of three games or more since Milwaukee did it to close the 1972 season, STATS said. The Yankees took a 3-0 lead in the second when a double by Martin Prado set up Headleys two-run double. Prado and Headley were the only two Yankees starters to previously hit against Keuchel. Ichiro Suzuki added a sacrifice fly later in the inning. Dexter Fowler hit a broken-bat double in the Houston fourth -- the barrel reached the infield dirt, the ball two-hopped off the right-field wall -- that put runners at second and third. Marc Krauss followed with a hard grounder off McCarthys leg and, after taking a moment to locate the ball on the grass, the lanky pitcher zipped a throw to first that ended the threat. McCarthy escaped another second-and-third jam in the seventh when Singleton struck out -- right after hitting a foul pop to the third-base side that Rock recovered -- and retiring Carlos Corporan on a flyball.
