Nick Rimando usually has to run the length of the field to celebrate a game-winning goal. This time, the happy mob came to him. Goalkeeper Rimando stopped Clint Dempsey's shootout kick, and D.C. United rode Brian Carroll's successful kick moments earlier to a 4-3 victory over the New England Revolution in front of 21,101 in RFK Stadium on Saturday night and advanced to the MLS Cup. "The goal scorers usually get the good celebration -- the run and jump and all," Rimando said.
