A look back at MLS weekend 29

After the past weekend of MLS play, not a whole lot has changed atop the Western Conference standigs, but teams that saw their playoff chances look bleak on Friday now have a whole new perspective heading into the last weekend of the MLS regular season.

In the west, Chivas USA, the Houston Dynamo and the Los Angeles Galaxy remain jammed into a three-way tie for first place in the conference. Chivas did sit atop the conference temporarily when it played to a 2-2 tie with the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night, but that advantage was nullified the next day, as the Dynamo and Galaxy played to a scoreless draw at Robertson Stadium.

The Galaxy currently hold the tiebreaker advantage over both Chivas and Houston. The Galaxy won two of three against Chivas this season and also have a win against the Dynamo in their pocket. Seattle still remains a threat in the West, as it sits a point behind the three teams after it defeated the Kansas City Wizards 3-2 ti clinch a playoff berth. Sounders midfielder Freddie Ljundberg

Meanwhile, two teams in the Eastern Conference revived their playoff hopes. DC United recorded a 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew and Toronto FC defeated Real Salt Lake by the same score. Both teams are now tied with FC Dallas and the New England Revolution at 39 points, one point back of the Colorado Rapids.
