  • Vancouver is currently in seventh place in the Western Conference. RSL is in fifth, the last playoff spot.
  • The 'Caps are in a four-way tie for leakiest offense in the conference, with 11 goals allowed.
  • RSL is the only team in an MLS playoff spot with a negative goal difference (-2).
  • Part of that problem is the fact that the Royals have scored just seven goals, the fewest of any team to occupy one of those positions.
  • On Wednesday, Vancouver advanced to the final of the Canadian Championship with a win over FC Edmonton.
