Change back: Nick Rimando came back to RSL last Saturday after leading the U.S. Men's National Team to a Gold Cup win in one of the most dominant performances in U.S. Men's soccer history.

Nick Rimando had a save of the week in the 40th minute when former teammate Will Johnson went tête–à–tête almost point blank and Rimando parried away Johnson's low power shot to keep the sheet clean — for the moment. Rimando's only miss was with a Diego Valeri header he pinged past him in the final minutes of the game while Rimando was recovering from a save he made as Valeri challenged him 1-1 only nano-seconds earlier.
