Seattle has never scored in the MLS playoffs – a scoreless streak of 300 minutes: 90 home to Houston last season, 90 away at Houston last season, 30 minutes of extra time in Houston last season, and 90 more scoreless minutes tonight against LA.
However, coach Sigi Schmid doesn’t think that kind of thing is something his players consider.
“Guys don’t go into the game thinking that we haven’t scored a goal in so many minutes in the playoffs,” he said. “It doesn’t enter our mind and isn’t something we talk about. It hasn’t bounced our way, but that can change in the next game.”
