[MLS PREVIEW: Week 34]Landon Donovan needs one goal to break the MLS career scoring record of 134 goals he shares with Jeff Cunningham, but don't look for him to break it Wednesday night against the Montreal Impact in the final MLS interconference game of the season. Donovan, who was sent home from the national team because of his ailing ankle that he sprained a month ago, hopes to play against the Montreal but didn't sound optimistic.

“Not feeling great, but we're going to try and manage it in the right way,” Donovan, who has not trained since the Jamaica game, where he came off at halftime, told MLSSoccer.com following the Galaxy's practice Tuesday morning. “It's a little worse than I think we thought it was initially, so be smart about it and try to get it ready, hopefully, for a push here at the end of the season.”

Both the Galaxy and Impact go into the game tied for fourth place in their respective conference, but neither team can clinch a playoff berth with a win.

The Western Conference goes into the Galaxy-Impact game with a plus-13 advantage in interconference play. It has won the Battle of the Conferences for the fourth time in the last five years after four straight Eastern Conference wins.
