TORONTO -- Two "silly mistakes" led to two shots on net, and cost Toronto FC a victory in their first game back at BMO Field in almost a month. Nick DeLeon and Perry Kitchen scored on D.C. Uniteds only two shots on target Saturday night in a 2-1 victory over Toronto, putting an end to TFCs six-game unbeaten streak. "Two mistakes, two shots on goal, two goals, two stupid ones as well, two silly mistakes," said an unhappy Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen. "And it cost us three points." Luke Moore scored the lone goal for Toronto, which outshot D.C. United 19-7 -- 6-2 on net. "We were very disappointed because we felt we were right in the game, obviously," said captain Steven Caldwell. "Second half, we gave away two very sloppy goals, cost us in the end. "We rolled up our sleeves and did some lovely little stuff, and huffed and puffed. And just couldnt quite get that finish." Moore, who was originally slated to sit out Saturday night on a one-game suspension, scored in the 60th minute to tie the game 1-1, pouncing on a rebound off a shot by Jackson and poking the ball past D.C. goalkeeper Bill Hamid. "Disappointing for us," Moore said. "Weve made good strides over the last couple of weeks. Today we maybe took half a step backwards." Moore had received a red card and suspension in Torontos 1-1 draw at Chicago on Wednesday, but TFC appealed and the leagues Independent Review Panel rescinded both his one-day suspension and fine. DeLeon had opened the scoring in the 54th minute, dribbling in on net with Torontos Nick Hagglund draped all over him. DeLeon managed to shake Hagglund long enough to get off a left-footed shot that sailed past Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik and into the right corner. Toronto had been dominating possession and appeared poised to score again in the Eastern Conference showdown when Kitchen stunned the red-clad capacity crowd of 22,581 fans in the 70th minute, heading in a goal off a corner kick to put United back on top. Toronto hadnt lost an MLS matchup since May 3 -- 2-1 to New England at BMO Field -- and Saturdays result was a disappointing one for a team that has been marching up the Eastern standings and is on pace to claim its first playoff berth in franchise history. TFC (6-5-3) went into the game two spots behind second-place D.C. United (8-5-4) in the East. Toronto was reduced to 10 men for the last few minutes when Hagglund was shown a red card after Eddie Johnson, the last man back for United, went down in the 88th. "What frustrated me was how many times in the first half, and the game, that we broke away and they pulled us down, knocked us down and we continued and played on. And nothing happened," Nelsen said of the referees decision. "Unfortunately when it came to our one, the player I think obviously sold a big dummy, did a big dive. . . He was the last man so the correct decision was the red, but if you look at it, there should have been a big pool of water under him when he did that big dirty dive." The referee originally pulled a yellow out of his pocket, but switched it to red several moments later, which puzzled Toronto players. "Theres a lot of things Ive seen that Ive never seen before, to be honest. But obviously I dont want to criticize referees because Ive never been a referee," said Defoe. "Its absolutely irrelevant what the call IS," Caldwell added. "The call WAS a yellow card and Ive never known anything like it. Are we going to start changing penalty decisions, reassessing everything from above, from the stands, and telling the referee in his ear? Essentially theres no point having the referee out there." Despite missing a man, TFC poured it on in the last couple of minutes, and had a couple of excellent chances to tie the game in injury time. Moore fired a blistering shot that glanced just wide of the left corner, the Daniel Lovitz, a second-half substitution, had a shot that was saved only by a spectacular highlight-reel effort by Hamid. "How he brought that down and showed his technique, it was fantastic. An incredible save," Nelsen said. The game marked the return of midfielder Michael Bradley, who received loud applause during team introductions. The Toronto midfielder is fresh off the United States heartbreaking exit from the World Cup in the round of 16. "I felt good, excited to be back," Bradley said. "Im disappointed that the game went the way it did, because this was a big game against a team close to us in the table and it would have been nice to capitalize." Bradley had a spectacular scoring chance in the 34th minute when Defoe found the American with a nice pass. But Bradley launched his shot just wide of the D.C. net. Defoe had his own scoring chance five minutes earlier when he slid onto a low cross from Justin Morrow, but Hamid got his hands on it. Morrow had a decent scoring chance early in the second half when he got the ball alone at the corner of the six-yard-box, but sent his shot wide of the far post. Caldwell said its important the players put Saturdays loss behind them. "We dont look back," he said. "We get another run of six plus games, hopefully six, seven, eight, nine, 10 games. Disappointing to lose that run, we were feeling good and playing very well. On a different day today we could have won the game." Toronto remains at home for its next two games -- TFC hosts Houston on July 12, then the Vancouver Whitecaps on July 16.

Montreal traded Grabovski early in his NHL career, but it was in his five seasons with Toronto that he "grew up" as a hockey player. After Grabovski was bought out by the Maple Leafs last summer, his former teammates expect him to be fired up when the Washington Capitals visit Air Canada Centre on Saturday night. "Im sure hell be wanting to put on a good show here in Toronto," centre Tyler Bozak said. "Hell want to play well, for sure. Hopefully we can hold him to a minimum out there. Hes going to be going hard." Good friend Nikolai Kulemin expects Grabovski is "going to play harder against us than any other teams." This after things went poorly in his final season in Toronto, culminating with his profanity-filled ripping of coach Randy Carlyle in an interview with TSN Radio 1050 after being bought out. Kulemin said Grabovski was a little nervous before getting married when he went off on Carlyle. Defenceman Carl Gunnarsson said Friday he thought Grabovski did all right last year in spite of some adversity. "I guess he wasnt happy with how he played or how they used him in games," Gunnarsson said. "But even though going out to the media like that might not be the right answer to it. Thats up to him. I dont think anyone would happy to be bought out like that." Grabovski said this week hes comfortable with his role on the Capitals, centring the third line between Jason Chimera and Joel Ward. Coach Adam Oates more offensive-minded system fits him better than Carlyles, so hes happy to have a fresh start. But that doesnt mean hes not at least "a little bit excited" to return to Toronto and face the Leafs. "Its motivation to play in the place where you play like a hometown," Grabovski told reporters at the Capitals practice facility Thursday. "Five years in the city. I feel like I have a lot of friends, a lot of family, I know a lot of people, so for me its like hometown. I can say I grew up in this place." Grabbovski played 340 games with the Leafs, putting up 91 goals and 118 assists.dddddddddddd He thrived under coach Ron Wilson and along the way earned a US$27.5-million, five-year contract. Carlyle used Grabovski in more defensive spots than he was used to, and the relationship soured. Even with the hard feelings, Grabovski said this week that Carlyle and his staff helped him become a better defensive and more disciplined player. Prompted Saturday with a question about Grabovski airing his grievances on the way out, Carlyle laughed it off with a profanity. "Im not here to comment on players comments," Carlyle said. "Players make comments, they have their own agenda. My agenda here is as weve stated when it happened, we thank him for his time here, wish him all the best and were moving on. Simple as that." On coaching against Grabovski, Carlyle said: "Hes another player. I dont focus on Grabovski, I focus on the Washington Capitals." Grabovski has been a big part of the Capitals success this season. With seven goals and 12 assists, Grabovski is third on the team in points, behind only top-line stars Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. After feeling "terrible" about the buyout, the 29-year-old said he feels "excellent" in Washington. Thats a welcome development for his former teammates. "Hes found a place where he fits in well," Bozak said. "We know hes a great player and a good friend of all of ours. Hes having a great year, and were happy for him." NOTES -- Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser is expected to return to the lineup after missing the past two games with a knee injury. Morgan Rielly is expected to be a healthy scratch. ... Centre Tyler Bozak will miss his 11th straight game with a hamstring injury. Carlyle said he was very surprised Bozak was not available against the Capitals because he was "fully counting" on him being ready. ... After losing 3-2 to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night, the Capitals are tweaking their lineup. Martin Erat is expected to be a healthy scratch, and hell be replaced by Eric Fehr who hasnt played since Nov. 2.
