The Los Angeles Galaxy will begin their chase for the 2011 MLS Cup title today against a New York Red Bulls squad intent on shaking up the playoff field wih an upset of the Supporters Shield winners (3pm, ESPN2).
Today's Western Conference semifinal first leg brings us to frigid Red Bull Arena, where some surprising snow covered the area on Saturday. The sun is out though, and much of the snow has already melted, leaving a chilly but playable set-up at Red Bull Arena today.
The Red Bulls come in having already played a playoff game, a 2-0 Wild Card round victory against FC Dallas on Wednesday.
