MOST COMMENTED

Last season, MLS averaged 2.62 goals per game, its lowest besides the 2.61 its teams mustered in 2004. Fans are seeing even fewer goals in early going of the 2007 season. The first 26 games have an average of 2.27 goals. Kansas City leads the league in scoring, having notched nine goals in its first four games for a 2.25 average. New England's Taylor Twellman leads the league in scoring with four strikes in four games, followed by Eddie Johnson, who's notched three goals, which exceeds his output of the 2006 season.
