Atlanta's Guzan after 3-0 win vs. RBNY: "We've got a chip on our shoulder"

After their 3-0 first-leg win in their Eastern Conference Championship series against the New York Red Bulls, most will focus on the three goals scored by the Five Stripes which gives them a sizable aggregate-goal advantage heading into Leg 2 on Thursday.  

But it also helps that Atlanta and their goalkeeper, Brad Guzan, kept a clean sheet at home. An away goal for the Red Bulls would have given the Supporters' Shield winners a greater dose of hope as they look to mount an improbable comeback.

"We’ve got a bit of a chip on our shoulder now," Guzan said. "We’ve got to go in Thursday -- same attitude, same mentality. Can’t take our foot off the gas."
