Most results in the Western Conference didn't go Sporting KC's way last night as Vancouver, Colorado, and Portland all won to add to their point total, getting Vancouver within five points, Portland within one, and the Rapids extended their lead on KC to seven points. The only good news out West was that San Jose and Seattle drew, meaning neither one of them gained three points on Kansas City. Today's games feature three Eastern Conference teams, but still there's things KC fans will want to happen.
Orlando at Los Angeles
What we want to happen - Orlando win
Pretty simple here, while it allows KC to gain on KC in terms of a fantasy MLS Cup, it keeps LA within five points of Kansas City, and with the Galaxy coming to Kansas City next weekend it leaves a window for KC to cut that lead to two in a little over a week.
DC at New York
What we want to happen - DC win
Back to the MLS Cup hopes, New York is ahead of Kansas City, so Sporting want them to drop points so that KC can potentially catch them.
