Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando is no stranger to high pressure games.

He's faced strikes from international superstars and some of MLS's best shooters.

So we really shouldn't be surprised when he puts his body on the line for his team.

Check out this double save he made against Houston's Leonel Miranda:

Yes, that was his face.

Rimando looked a tad worse for wear after that block, but we can't say we blame him.

Facetime had a new meaning tonight. Thanks to all to fans that made it out and supported. I'm well and ready next week.

And with RSL prevailing, 2-1, Rimando's save (and face) proved to be the difference.
