[MLS] The two MLS games played Wednesday produced seven goals, lots of drama, and a stunning ending. Here are the Three Stars who made it a memorable night ...

Wednesday's Three Stars

1. BOBBY CONVEY (San Jose)

Against the Eastern Conference-leading Crew, Convey led a furious Quakes assault that twice rallied from one-goal deficits to secure a frantically played 2-2 tie. With the score tied, 1-1, Convey acrobatically volleyed a loose ball out of the air to hit a bouncing shot that forced a good save by Crew keeper Will Hesmer. After the Crew regained the lead, a Convey corner kick was flicked on for Chris Wondolowski to head his sixth goal of the season and earn Convey his seventh assist, second only to the Galaxy's Landon Donovan (nine).

2. JUAN PABLO ANGEL (New York)
After being stoned one-v-one by Dynamo goalie Pat Onstad on a clear chance to increase the Red Bulls’ 1-0 lead, striker Angel labored fruitlessly up top for another opportunity. A few missed connections with Tony Tchani and Sinisa Ubiparipovic and a Brian Ching equalizer increased his frustration, but in stoppage time, Conor Chinn drew a foul in the middle of the field 30 yards from goal. Angel struck a bending shot with his right foot that just cleared Onstad’s desperate dive and kissed the inside of the post on its way into the net for a 2-1 win.

3. EDDIE GAVEN (Columbus)
Though the Crew twice squandered leads, it at least left San Jose with a point, which it wasn’t able to do last weekend at home against Los Angeles (a 2-0 defeat) despite a dominating performance. Gaven scored from point-blank range in the fifth minute, and sparked several threatening attacks with sharp passes and clever runs. He also did some work defensively, heading away several corner kicks and free kicks during a freewheeling 90 minutes played at a breakneck pace.

    Possible MNT future for Convey, Gavin?
