Although neither Tally Hall nor Josh Saunders have had the reigns to the starting goalkeeping position for long, neither player is unfamiliar with MLS Cup finals.
Last year, in his first year as a starter, Hall led the Dynamo to their first Eastern Conference Championship and a berth in the MLS Cup Final against the LA Galaxy. Saunders has seen action in two previous Cup finals, coming on as a sub in 2009 for an injured Donovan Ricketts and starting last year's 1-0 win for the Galaxy over the Dynamo.
As the Dynamo and Galaxy prepare for Saturday's MLS Cup rematch, we take a look at the two men who will mind the goals for their respective clubs.
