A Set of Goose Eggs

The Wizards ended their long 6 game road trip with a 0-0 draw in Salt Lake. Both teams had some chances the Wizards best came in the first half, when Davy Arnaud rattled the woodwork from about 22 yards out. Salt Lake was denied by some more good goalkeeping by Kevin Hartman. Including one from point blank against Kenny Deuchar off of a corner. Overall, the better opportunities were created by Salt Lake, as they tested Hartman again and again. Even with the point, though, the Wizards find themselves at the foot of the Eastern Conference after DC's win in Chicago last night.

The Wizards finish the road trip with a 1-3-2 record, scoring only 4 goals in those 6 matches while allowing 8 goals. a disappointing run of games overall. I'll have a full write up on the road trip this coming week.

Wizards Man of the Match - Kevin Hartman - Who else could it be tonight? He once again saves the Wizards and has kept this team from being at the foot of the league table, instead of just at the foot of the East. It's scary how bad this team would be right now if Hartman had not saved this team multiple times this season.
