Columbus Crew SC's Darlington Nagbe is being recognized for scoring the best goal of the Major League Soccer season and Eloy Room is being recognized for making the best save of the season.

Nagbe earned MLS Goal of the Year honors for his August 20 goal against the Chicago Fire.

Nagbe flicked the ball to himself and scored on a volley from distance.

The Crew went on to win that match 3-0.

Room, who has been the anchor of the Crew's record-setting defense, earned MLS Save of the Year honors for a double-save he made against Orlando City FC.

Room first made a kick-save after a shot took a deflection off of Crew defender Harrison Afful. He then made another acrobatic save after Orlando FC took a shot off the rebound that went through a trio of Crew defenders.

Room is the first Crew player to win MLS Save of the Year.

Nagbe and Room will return to action Saturday at 3 p.m. against the New York Red Bulls in the first round of the postseason.
