CARSON, Calif -- The LA Galaxy play host to the New England Revolution this Saturday at The Home Depot Center, their second straight match for LA against an Eastern Conference Opponent. New England picked up their first points of the season last weekend, defeating the Portland Timbers at Gillette Stadium. The Galaxy were off last weekend. This is the Galaxy's first match broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.

New England's Matt Reis became the sixth goalkeeper in MLS history to reach the 1,000 save plateau in the 1-0 shutout of Portland. Reis has been with the Revolution since 2003, making 215 appearances. He began his career with LA in 1998, making 39 appearances for the Galaxy.

That match was the Revs home opener, and it only took 28 seconds to get the lone goal. Saer Sene's goal was also the first for New England this season, in three matches. It was the eighth fastest goal to start a match in MLS history, the fourth fastest in the Revolution's history.

LA comes back after their week off, following their first win of 2012; a 3-1 victory over DC United at The Home Depot Center. After losing back to back games at home (in all competitions) for the first time since August 2010, the Galaxy now have a chance to get a new home win streak started.

This is the Rev's second trip to the West Coast this season, losing 1-0 in San Jose to kick off the season. The loss extended New England's winless streak on the West Coast to 11 games (0-9-2). The Revolution haven't won in either the Mountain or Pacific Time Zone since an August 2009 match in Seattle; a span of 17 matches.
