The 3-0 win means that Seattle and LA are now tied with most victories from 2009 to the present.

Starting a backline of deep reserves, the Seattle Sounders earned their second shutout by that same reserve backline. The only thing that looked better than the shutout was a dynamic offense that punished the LA Galaxy in all parts of the field.

Sounders create a miracle at the Big O and draw 2-2 in the 94th minute.

Will Bruin turned a nearly certain road loss into an incredible road draw. His goal in the 94th minute earned the Seattle Sounders their first point of 2016, securing a 2-2 draw. Seattle has yet to lead on the young year, has given up two goals before scoring in both games, and yet magic clearly exists.

Badger makes peace with bear.

Osvaldo Alonso has one red card over the last three seasons. It came in a match against the Houston Dynamo in which Alonso got himself ejected after literally going after Will Bruin's throat following a questionable tackle.

The two players are, of course, now teammates and it was interesting to see one of the first players to embrace Bruin after his equalizing goal on Saturday was none other than Alonso.

Will Bruin is right: Wade Barrett deserved the job.

The Houston Dynamo should have kept Wade Barrett as their head coach. That seems to be the sentiment of many fans, and that feeling was expressed on Twitter by both current and former players. I agree with Will Bruin, Sheanon Williams, Stuart Holden, and Geoff Cameron: Barrett did what he could in an unfortunate situation and deserves to be rewarded for it.

In many ways, this was the quintessential United visit to Houston: The Dynamo were in charge for long stretches thanks to some sloppy DC giveaways and Houston's ability to win more 50/50 balls.

Leading up to the Seattle Sounders' away match at LA Galaxy last weekend, questions about their attack were getting louder and more persistent after scoring two goals in three games.
