Rank Team Comment
1 (1) Real Salt Lake Backup GK Jeff Attinella was stellar (eight saves) in shutting out MLS champs on road
2 (4) FC Dallas Top scoring team hosts Seattle on Saturday seeking first four-game win streak since 2009
3 (3) Sporting KC Led the league with 511 fouls committed last year and already on pace to do it again
4 (7) Toronto FC Michael Bradley’s goal from the tightest of angles was his first in MLS in nine years
5 (8) LA Galaxy Looked every bit the role of big brother in a 3-0 thrashing of Chivas in the SuperClasico
6 (2) Columbus April (0-1) has brought Gregg Berhalter’s Crew back to Earth after perfect March (3-0)
7 (10) Colorado Jose Mari’s exquisite, curling strike from distance could be in the Goal of the Year mix
8 (5) Vancouver Hopes to get Nigel Reo-Coker back soon after he concussed himself tripping over bike rack
9 (9) Sounders FC Clint Dempsey’s hat trick surely brought some ease to tense USMNT fans pre-World Cup
10 (6) Houston The wheels came off after a shaky-at-best red card to David Horst, leading to a 4-1 loss
11 (11) Philadelphia Similar to Bradley, returning U.S. int’l Maurice Edu scored his first league goal since 2008
12 (12) Portland Diego Chara scored twice on his 28th birthday, breaking his drought since 2011
13 (15) NY Red Bulls Luis Robles made a career-high nine saves in Montreal, including six in first 25 minutes
14 (16) Chicago Reigning MVP Mike Magee scored his season’s first goal, but couldn’t convert crucial late PK
15 (14) Chivas USA If production doesn’t come from El Cubo or Mauro Rosales, it seemingly won’t come at all
16 (17) San Jose In just three games, defender Victor Bernardez has tied career highs in goals (2), assists (1)
17 (19) D.C. United Beat the Revs to snap a 15-game winless streak, tied for second-longest in MLS history
18 (13) New England Offense is nonexistent, having been on the wrong end of four shutouts in five games
19 (18) Montreal Might have made a move that could change the season, trading for Jack McInerney
