[MLS REWIND: Week 34] Rookie defender Kofi Opare's goal in the second half gave the short-handed LA Galaxy a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact that left four teams separated by two points in the race for the  Western Conference lead with two games to play. The loss left Montreal with one point in its last six games and one of three teams tied for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Galaxy was playing without injured Omar Gonzalez and Landon Donovan and Panamanian keeper Jaime Penedo, but Irish star Robbie Keane, who had just returned from Europe in the afternoon, came off the bench.

Its front three consisted of the homegrown trio of Gyasi Zardes, Jose Villarreal and Jack McBean.

    What is more interesting the fact that 6 teams within 2 points of winning the supporters' shield with 2 games left for all. Imagine this happening in England for example.

    Hey does anyone want to predict the outcome of the last games? So much to consider. Who is back from international play and not injured. I thought the Sounders were deep and they lost the last 3. I thought LA was fading but they are doing it with depletion. I was rooting for Portland but they play Saly Lake this week but is Valeri playing? So many nail biting scenarios. And I know it is unamerican but I wanted Panama to win as the game rolled on but Klinsman has truely built a deep team. Okay I am off the MLS. Go whoever! Okay I am supose to say Sounders as my friend coaches them and my Brother played for them.
