But they have been one of the hottest teams in MLS (as evidenced by their eighth place ranking out of the top 100 teams in the United States and Canada) and are just three points behind the Columbus Crew for the fifth and final playoff spot - and perhaps most importantly, they have a game in hand on the Crew.
