Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando spoiled the night for a sold-out crowd of 25,364 at StubHub Center on Saturday night, blocking a Robbie Keane penalty kick in the 92nd minute to maintain a 1-0 lead that handed the Galaxy a loss in its season opener. Although Real Salt Lake walked off with the 1-0 victory, the conversation of the game will center on questionable calls made by replacement referees who were calling the game after the league's officiating union could not settle a labor dispute before the start of the season.

The Galaxy added some much-needed depth to its strike force this off-season the signing of two foreign players, veteran Canadian Rob Friend and young Brazilian Samuel. But the team, which opened their 2014 MLS regular season against Real Salt Lake on Saturday night, might get a boost on offense from a more local source: Gyasi Zardes. Zardes was one of the most highly touted prospects in Galaxy history when he was signed in December 2012. In the last two years of his college career at Cal State Bakersfield, Zardes scored 33 goals in 37 games, making him one of the most sought-after college strikers heading into the 2013 MLS draft.

The Galaxy opens its season Saturday night facing the rival that knocked them out of the playoffs last year: Real Salt Lake. But the Galaxy will field a markedly different team at the StubHub Center after bolstering its ranks with several experienced players during the off-season. The moves were to correct the team's uneven play in 2013. "If there was a weakness last year, it's that we were inconsistent," said Coach Bruce Arena, who last month signed a multiyear contract extension.

Before last year, Matt Besler had never played a game for the U.S. soccer team. And when he finally earned his first start, he played next to the Galaxy's Omar Gonzalez, who was making only his third international appearance. Now 14 months and 26 combined caps later, both could be starting in Brazil in June, becoming the two most inexperienced center backs to play in a World Cup opener for the U.S. since 1950. That's news Gonzalez greets with a smile and a shrug. "I guess it's kind of cool.

Over 16 seasons and the 315 games he played in Major League Soccer, Matt Reis' objective was always the same. Block the shot, protect his goal. A four-time All-Star with the New England Revolution, Reis set every goalkeeping record in the club's history and established himself as one of the top keepers in the league. Last year, after tearing his left quadriceps in the playoffs, Reis called it a career and retired at 38. In his tearful retirement speech, Reis likened himself during his early days in MLS to a soccer pioneer.
