Bottom line: After losing on Wednesday night and falling to third in the division behind the Gals, the Burn really need to win this game at home. Period. If they do, they'll be back in second place in the West and within striking distance of the Quakes. They'll also go from #4 seed in the playoffs to #3. This is really good, because it would mean the earliest that the Burn would face the Quakes (assuming that the Quakes win the West) would be in the MLS Cup final. And I'd rather face them on the wide open spaces of Gillette Stadium in the MLS Cup final than on the matchbox field of Spartan Stadium in an earlier round. But I'm not giving up hope on catching the Quakes. After Saturday night, the Burn finish off their league schedule playing four teams in the bottom half of the table. The last two games are against the two worst teams in the league. Meanwhile, the Quakes and Galaxy have to face each other the last two games of the season. So with a good run of results, San Jose's continued bad form on the road, and a little help from the Gals, Dallas could still finish on top. But first, they gotta win on Saturday. Absolutely, positively, no doubt about it.
