Remember the last time Chivas USA scored a goal? I'll paint a picture if it's becoming a little hazy. The Goats grabbed a penalty in garbage time of a handy loss to D.C. United at RFK Stadium on July 20. Erick Torres converted the PK to extend his personal scoring streak, and then the game ended and then we hoped he would keep scoring.

It's now been 44 days since that goal. Six full games have passed with Chivas USA unable to score. They are well within range of setting a record for longest scoreless streak in team history, as they sit on 546 minutes, and "only" need to not score for 55 minutes to break the 600 minute mark they set in 2012.

To put the streak in perspective, check this out:

And though he hasn't scored in six games, Chivas will be without leading scorer Erick Torres, who has accounted for a full two-thirds of the team's goals in 2014, for the first time this season in MLS play.

*Gulp*

What do you think? Will CUSA find a way to break the duck on Wednesday against the Seattle Sounders? Will the streak drag on? Leave a comment below!
