[MLSSCHEDULE: Week 22] Sporting Kansas City can pull away from the field in the Eastern Conference with a win at Montreal on Saturday, but it will be without its two all-star center backs Aurelien Collin (suspended) and Matt Besler (away on national team duty). The Impact, which will welcome back Italian star Marco Di Vaio, trails by four points, as do the New York Red Bulls, who host Western Conference leader Real Salt Lake.

-- Sporting Kansas City is unbeaten in its last six games, while the Impact hasn’t won in five games. Montreal played to a 0-0 tie at FC Dallas while Di Vaio was away addressing a family issue.

-- The New York-Real Salt Lake game is the first since Fabian Espindola, Jamison Olave and Jonny Steele joined the Red Bulls from RSL.

-- Chasing teams face key tests if they want to stay in playoff contention. Chicago, which is in seventh place in the Eastern Conference five points behind fifth-place Houston, travels to the Dynamo on Saturday. Colorado, which is in sixth place one point out of the playoff zone in the Western Conference, can overtake the LA Galaxy in third place with a win at home.
