*     *     *

Rank Team Comment
1 (1) Real Salt Lake Nick Rimando might be the best GK in MLS history; amazing he’s never won GK of the Year
2 (3) FC Dallas Matt Hedges has three goals in his last nine games, which is eye-popping for a center back
3 (4) Sporting K.C. Dom Dwyer has proved his 25 goals in USL were no mistake with four goals in four games
4 (2) L.A. Galaxy The wait for Landon Donovan’s record 135th goal has gotten awkwardly long
5 (8) Sounders FC Led just 19 minutes of a three-game road trip but ended up going an incredible 2-0-1
6 (5) Colorado Edson Buddle, Danny Mwanga reportedly got into a heated argument in the locker room
7 (6) Toronto FC Canadian int’l Issey Nakajima-Farran is off to a great start with two goals in four games
8 (7) Columbus That Giancarlo Gonzalez wasn’t sent off for hauling down EJ is the missed call of the year
9 (9) Vancouver Hard to find a young, attacking duo more exciting than Darren Mattocks/Kekuta Manneh
10 (11) Houston Kofi Sarkodie got a second yellow card for — wait for it — taking too long on a throw-in
11 (15) D.C. United Came ever close to a third straight win until a 90th-minute goal by the Crew
12 (16) New England Fifth time was a charm as GK Bobby Shuttleworth saved his first PK to preserve a tie
13 (17) N.Y. Red Bulls All is not lost as the Supporters’ Shield holders finally get their season’s first win
14 (10) Philadelphia Should just keep their bags packed until July with seven of the next 10 games on the road
15 (13) Chicago Déjà vu: Sixth straight tie, which matches an MLS record, included another late failed PK
16 (14) Chivas USA Defense has given up the lead three times during this six-game winless streak (0-3-3)
17 (12) Portland Will Johnson, after falling to 0-3-4, said the team looks like ‘amateurs’ in big moments
18 (18) San Jose Alan Gordon might hear from Disciplinary Committee for nasty, away-from-the-play elbow
19 (19) Montreal Hard to find much optimism going forward after a four-goal shellacking at Kansas City
