MLS Playoff Picture

With all of the regular season games in the bag, the playoffs are finally all set to go.

Los Angeles has won the top spot in the Western Conference by winning their game over San Jose, and also holding the tie breaker over both Houston and Chivas USA no matter what either of those teams does in their match up on Sunday.

Salt Lake has clinched a playoff spot by beating Colorado, and having Dallas and DC not win.

Dallas, DC and Toronto are all knocked out of contention by not winning.

This left New England to win on Sunday and grab the very last playoff place, knocking Colorado out. (This is the 8th consecutive season for New England and coach Steve Nicol to make the post season tournament.)

Houston also beat Chivas USA to claim #2 in the West.
