Though the Crew will leave Washington with the taste of defeat after Saturday's 1-0 loss to D.C. United, but goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum can hang his hat on another stellar match as he racked up six saves. Perhaps none of the Hebrew Hammer's saves were as memorable as his kick save against D.C. forward Long Tan in the 12th minute, TheCrew.com's Moment of the Match. Here is Gruenebaum's account of the sequence:

"I just kind of cut the angle-- I thought he was offside to be honest, but you have to play to the whistle, obviously. I was just able to flash my leg out in time for the save."
