Projected lineups: Oscar Pareja will likely stick to what he has used the last couple of weeks with Jesse Gonzalez remaining in goal over Chris Seitz. Mauro Diaz is also a question mark for this one but we may see him at best on the bench for this one. Look for everything else to remain about the same.
