2006 MLS Cup Playoff race

The final stretch of the 2006 MLS regular season has arrived. In about six weeks, four teams will see their season end, while eight clubs will vie for the MLS Cup.

In the Eastern Conference, Columbus, New York and Kansas City have the steepest roads to climb in order to make the playoffs, while in the Western Conference, Colorado has the disadvantage of playing six of its last eight games on the road, but Los Angeles, currently three points behind Colorado and Real Salt Lake, has the most ground to make up.

In their inaugural seasons last year, both Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake finished well out of playoff contention. This year, postseason play lies within reach for both.

Today's schedule:
Saturday, September 2
Columbus CrewNew England Revolution7:30 p.m.
FC DallasHouston Dynamo8:30 p.m.
Real Salt LakeColorado Rapids9:00 p.m.
Los Angeles GalaxyKansas City Wizards10:30 p.m.

MLS Cup 2006 will take place live on ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET on Nov. 12 from Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.
