AT SAN JOSE
Where: Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara.
On the air: TV: ESPN2, ESPN Deportes; Radio: 1150.
Regular-season records: Galaxy 16-12-6, San Jose 19-6-9.
Record vs. San Jose: 0-3-1 .
Update: The Galaxy enters the second and final leg of the Western Conference playoff series down by a goal, meaning it must win by one score to force overtime or two goals in regulation to advance outright. San Jose's path to the conference final is considerably easier: If the Earthquakes do no worse than a tie, they're in. Should the teams remain even in total goals for the series after regulation play and a 30-minute overtime, a penalty-kick shootout will determine the winner.
