If we can put 15 shots, if we can put 8-10 shots on goal and force Ricketts into saves, I think we will get the goals we need.”NOTES: This is the second match of a two-game aggregate-score series. Los Angeles holds a one-goal lead and therefore will advance with a win or draw. Seattle will advance with a win of two goals or more. If the Sounders have a one-goal lead at the end of regulation, 30 minutes of added time will be played. If the aggregate score remains even, the series will be decided by penalty kicks. … The Galaxy was 9-4-2 at home this season, but lost two of its last three. Seattle has won three of its last four road matches. … The Sounders have never scored a goal in postseason play, a streak of 300 minutes. … Defender Jeff Parke (ankle) is doubtful. He would likely be replaced by Tyrone Marshall. … Ricketts was selected MLS goalkeeper of the year. Omar Gonzalez was one of three finalists for defender of the year. Buddle is among the finalists for league MVP. Donovan is the all-time leader in MLS playoff goals (17). … Two Galaxy players who missed the series opener with injuries – Todd Dunivant (hamstring) and Michael Stevens (knee) -- are expected to be available. … The Los Angeles-area forecast for kickoff calls for temperatures around 60 with a 40 percent chance of rain. … Montero and designated player Blaise Nkufo each received cautions in the first leg. If either receives another Sunday, he would be ineligible for the Western final, should the Sounders advance. … The referee is Baldomero Toledo.NEXT: The season ends for the loser. The winner advances to meet FC Dallas in the Western Conference final.
