The Sounders have an off day from training today. They will return tomorrow, turning their attention to their weekend opponent, the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Vancouver is directly behind Seattle in the Western Conference standings, but 10 points south, so their bigger issue is Dallas in their rear-view mirror. The Whitecaps are winless over their last seven games, so they tried to take something positive from their 2-2 home draw with Colorado yesterday. "We've stopped the rot," said striker Kenny Miller.
