Real Salt Lake finished the regular season with a 1-0 road win against Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday. Corey Baird found Damir Kreilach in the 28th minute for the eventual game-winning goal and Nick Rimando came up huge with five saves for the Claret & Cobalt.
Real held the 5th spot in the western conference going into the match but their win combined with losses for L.A. Galaxy and Minnesota United launched them into 3rd place and a home playoff match against Portland Timbers.
