  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Vancouver goalkeeper Joe Cannon, 37, has five shutouts in his first 11 games of 2012, putting him on pace to best his career-high 10 shutouts in his 2004 campaign with the Colorado Rapids.
  • The last time these two sides met, much more was at stake besides positions in the Western Conference pecking order. Colorado came from behind on the last day of the regular season to defeat the Caps 2-1 and earn home-field advantage in the Wild Card Playoffs.
  • Colorado defender Tyrone Marshall will miss this match through suspension.
  • The league's worst team last year, Vancouver is in good form at the moment. The Whitecaps have lost just one of their last seven matches, and haven't lost at home in any competition in almost two months.
  • Argentine midfielder Martin Rivero is pulling the strings for Colorado this season. The 22-year-old, on loan from Rosario Central, has five assists and a goal in nine games for Colorado.
