MLS Cup Playoffs: LA Galaxy Vs. Real Salt Lake: Game Thread

The Galaxy trot out the full strength lineup. All three DPs, Juninho, and the ace back line. Robbie Keane is gonna have to find his form tonight. The Home Depot Center wants cartwheels. Landon Donovan as always is wearing the captain's band.  

One change from Real Salt Lake's probable starting lineup, as Jamison Olave gets lifted from the questionable list. Nat Borchers is on the bench. The rest is what we thought it'd be.
