New, 104 comments

After a week that has seen them rain on the parade of the Clint Dempsey unveiling and pick up a point in their CCL opener, the Houston Dynamo travel to Stade Saputo to face the Montreal Impact. Can they find a way to carry last Saturday's form on the road and pick up valuable points against an Eastern Conference foe?
