Two of the hottest teams in MLS put their lengthy unbeaten streaks on the line, as the surging San Jose Earthquakes take on in-form D.C. United in the headliner on a busy night in MLS.
The New England Revolution and Colorado Rapids kick things off at Gillette Stadium, where Benny Feilhaber is back in the starting lineup for the Revs, and Colorado has had to make some changes to the back line. Seattle and Los Angeles do battle as well, with the Galaxy spotlight falling on Landon Donovan as Robbie Keane and David Beckham did not make the trip for the match.
The 2012 Canadian championship also kicks off, with the semifinals featuring three MLS teams for the first time. In the first leg of one semifinal, Montreal hosts three-time defending champion Toronto FC, who have matched the worst start in MLS history but can start to put that behind them with success in the tournament. In the other semifinal, NASL's FC Edmonton gets a crack at the Vancouver Whitecaps, who have finished as the runner up for the last three years.
