MLS PLAYOFF PICTURE
Five teams battling for four spots in East
NEW YORK –The Houston Dynamo picked up one point with a tie against the Montreal Impact today and in so doing have eliminated Montreal from playoff contention.
While the 2012 expansion Impact have won 10 of their 16 home games so far this season, the club’s inability to find success on the road hindered an ascent in the standings. With just two regular season games remaining in their inaugural campaign, the club will be unable to overtake in points six of the ten Eastern Conference teams.
Five teams are still in the running for the four remaining Eastern Conference playoff spots while two teams are still playing for one remaining Western Conference playoff berth.
The below teams have already secured a place in the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs:
San Jose Earthquakes
Real Salt Lake
Seattle Sounders FC
Sporting Kansas City
