Chivas USA coming in off a win

Chivas USA defeated the New England Revolution today in California, 2-0, and has 36 standings points.
Chivas, moreover, has only played 23 games, two fewer than Sounders FC, and trails Seattle by just one point. No team has fewer draws then Chivas, with three. Chivas plays at Qwest Field next Saturday.
New England’s failure to get at least a point keeps it at 33. Meanwhile, the Crew scored a huge win over the Dynamo thanks to a PK in the 91st minute by Eddie Gaven. That’s 42 points for the Crew to claim the top seed overall for now, while Houston stays at 40.
So Sounders FC stays where it is for the time being. Fifth-best point total in the league and in playoff position.
