ANAHEIM, Calif. Adidas Nmd Nere . - Frederik Andersen has plenty of wins in his brief time with the Anaheim Ducks, but the goalie had never before stopped every puck sent his way.That changed Sunday when Andersen turned away all 28 shots in his first career shutout, leading Anaheim to a resounding 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues.Andersen joined former Boston goalie Ross Brooks as the only two goalies in NHL history to win 25 of their first 30 starts. Andersen improved to 25-5 in his short career, but the young netminder was more excited about finally keeping a clean sheet.Oh, I knew. I knew I didnt have one, Andersen said. Thats something you remember, obviously. Its like the players when they get that first goal. They will remember it forever.Andersen, who never started five consecutive games during his rookie season, was rarely challenged as the Ducks (5-1-0) won their fifth straight with Andersen in net. They also extended their home winning streak against St. Louis to eight games.I think we just started playing like we wanted to, Andersen said. We came out really good defensively, and on offence, too, the whole 60 minutes. That was a really good team effort today.Andersen delivered his best save when he slid back across the crease and used his blocker to deny Alexander Steen on an odd-man rush early in the second period.Sami Vatanen had his first career multigoal game for the Ducks, scoring with a pair of blistering one-timers on the power play.Brian Elliott made 22 saves for the Blues (2-2-1), who went 1-1-1 on their road trip. St. Louis played without free-agent prize Paul Stastny, who sustained an upper-body injury Friday against Arizona.They were a step ahead of us most of the night, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. Thought their checking was a step ahead. Their puck support was a step ahead. They looked quicker on pucks and quicker to pucks than we were.Matt Beleskey collected a clever entry pass from Rickard Rakell and unleashed a slap shot past Elliott at 1:37 of the first period for his fourth goal of the season.Anaheim sustained pressure early, but needed an impressive stick save by defenceman Clayton Stoner to thwart a golden chance for Jaden Schwartz.Its expected to feel a little slow out there, but that is something you have to battle through, Elliott said after the Blues third game in four nights. The ice is a little softer out here, and you have to play smart hockey and know that the easy plays arent going to be there. Probably for half the game, we were not doing the things that make us successful.Vatanen made it 2-0 with a rocket shot from just inside the blue line late in the first period, leaving Elliott no time to react. Vatanen added his fifth career power-play goal with 15:37 left in the second, sending it in off a no-look pass from Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf.The other four guys did the work there, said Vatanen, who became the sixth Anaheim defenceman with multiple power-play goals in a game. I just got my stick on the ice and the puck comes there, and it was an empty net. I just needed to put it in.When the Ducks went back on the power play 2 minutes later, the Honda Center crowd screamed for Vatanen to shoot every time he touched the puck, but he said he never heard those pleas.Getzlaf had two assists, but Corey Perrys franchise-best streak of five games with a point to start the season came to an end.NOTES: St. Louis D Petteri Lindbohm made his NHL debut, playing 14:05. C Jori Lehtera, who had one goal and two assists against Arizona, and D Jordan Leopold were scratched. ... Anaheim RW Chris Wagner was a scratch after making his NHL debut against Minnesota on Friday. D Mark Fistric was scratched with flu-like symptoms and has yet to appear in a game this season.

Starting from pole, the 26-year-old Vettel turned in a trademark clinical performance to win the Indian Grand Prix on Sunday and join F1 greats Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as just the third driver to win four consecutive championships. SECAUCUS, N.J. -- The Houston Astros had the No. 1 pick again, and this time, they took a pitcher polished beyond his years. California high school left-hander Brady Aiken was the first selection in the Major League Baseball draft Thursday night. "Its the most advanced high school pitcher Ive ever seen in my entire career," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He has command like Ive never seen before of his stuff." The 17-year-old from San Diegos Cathedral Catholic High School is just the third prep pitcher to be selected first overall, joining fellow lefties Brien Taylor (1991, Yankees) and David Clyde (1973, Rangers). The Miami Marlins made it the first time high school pitchers were the top two picks in the draft when they selected Tyler Kolek, a hard-throwing right-hander from Shepherd High School in Texas. Twenty pitchers were taken in the first round, tying the draft record set in 2001. The Astros are the first team to select first in three consecutive drafts, having picked shortstop Carlos Correa in 2012 and right-hander Mark Appel last year. Aiken is in line to receive a huge contract. The allotted slot bonus for the top pick is nearly $8 million. "Unbelievable. Its really a dream come true," Aiken said. "This is something that Ive wanted ever since I was a young kid. Im at a loss for words. This is my dream and its finally starting to come true." Aiken is also the first high school lefty to be drafted in the first five picks since Adam Loewen went fourth overall to Baltimore in 2002. The UCLA recruit, who compared himself to Clayton Kershaw and David Price, has terrific control of a fastball that hits 96-97 mph, a knee-buckling curve and a tough changeup that sits in the low- to mid-80s. The 6-foot-5 Kolek has a fastball that sits in the high-90s and touched 100-102 mph several times, causing many to compare him to fellow Texas flamethrowers such as Nolan Ryan, Kerry Wood and Josh Beckett. "How do you pass up a guy throwing 100?" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said after Miamis 11-6 win at Tampa Bay. "So, Im happy with the pick. Its a big, old, country strong right-hander." The Chicago White Sox selected North Carolina State left-hander Carlos Rodon with the third overall pick. The 6-3, 235-pound junior was widely regarded as the top college pitcher available and had been in the mix to go No. 1 overall. He followed a dominant sophomore year with a solid but not spectacular junior season. Indiana slugger Kyle Schwarber went No. 4 overall to the Chicago Cubs as the first position player selected. He is a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award as the best catcher in Division I, although he could move to third base or the outfield in the pros. "Well let that play out," Cubs senior vice-president of scouting and player development Jason McLeod said. Nick Gordon, the son of former big league pitcher Tom Gordon and brother of Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon, went fifth overall to Minnesota. The Florida high school slick-fielding shortstop was the first of the seven prospects in attendance at MLB Network Studios to have his name called by Commissioner Bud Selig, who is retiring in January and presiding over the draft for the final time. After a few interviews, Gordon breathed a big sigh of relief and gave his father a hhuge hug. Adidas NMD R2. "This is a proud moment. Its hard to describe," Tom Gordon said. "I have nothing but pride and pure joy for my boys." Gordon, from Orlandos Olympia High School, also has some family bragging rights now: His father was a sixth-rounder by Kansas City in 1986, while his brother was a fourth-rounder by Los Angeles in 2008. "Were pretty much the same player," Nick Gordon said of the brothers. "You know, hes got a little bit more speed than I do, Ive got a little bit more pop than he does. But, you know, we model our game after each other." A few other players followed in the footsteps of famous family members. Wichita State first baseman Casey Gillaspie went 20th overall to Tampa Bay, 17 spots ahead of where his brother Conor, the White Soxs third baseman, was picked in 2008. "I cant really compare myself to him because hes in the big leagues," Casey said. "It was cool when it happened, but now Im just ready and focused." San Francisco outfielder Bradley Zimmer was taken 21st by Cleveland. His brother, Kyle, was the fifth overall pick by Kansas City in 2012. With the next pick, Detroit took California high school outfielder Derek Hill, whose father Orsino was a first-rounder in January 1982 and is now a scout for the Dodgers. California high school catcher Alex Jackson went sixth to Seattle, which intends to move him to the outfield. "Ive been playing multiple positions my whole life," Jackson said. "Its nothing extra ordinary that has been thrown my way. Im looking forward to getting out there competing." LSU righty Aaron Nola was the seventh overall selection by Philadelphia. Evansville lefty Kyle Freeland, a Colorado native, went No. 8 to the Rockies and said hes used to pitching in the thin Denver air and isnt afraid of it. East Carolina right-hander Jeff Hoffman went ninth to Toronto, which also took Kennesaw State catcher Max Pentecost two picks later. The New York Mets rounded out the top 10 picks by selecting Oregon State outfielder Michael Conforto. In the year of Tommy John surgery in baseball, two pitchers who recently had the operation were selected in the first 18 picks -- a sign that teams are confident in the success rate of the procedure. Even though theyll likely be sidelined for 12-18 months, Hoffman and UNLV righty Erick Fedde (No. 18 to Washington) remained attractive prospects. Vanderbilt righty Tyler Beede was the 14th overall pick by San Francisco, becoming the 18th player in draft history to be selected in the first round of two June drafts. He went 21st to Toronto in 2011. St. Louis wrapped up the first round of the draft, which is held over three days and 40 rounds, by selecting California high school righty Jack Flaherty at No. 34 -- seven picks after taking Florida State right-hander Luke Weaver. Gareth Morgan, from Toronto, was the first Canadian selected this year. The right-handed outfielder was drafted out of Blyth Academy by the Seattle Mariners, 74th overall. "Im honoured that the Mariners selected me and its also very special to be the first Canadian to be taken in the draft," said Morgan from his home in Toronto where he was following the draft with his family. "I have worked very hard throughout my career for this moment and Im excited for what the future holds."
