Week 2 of MLS is in the books, and it did not help tip the scales in terms of which conference is superior, the East or the West.

Of the six games played between teams from opposite conferences, there was an even spilt in terms of wins and losses—three wins for each respective coast. 

There were no ties this week; each game provided a winner. The highest-scoring team was Chivas USA. The Goats netted three times in their 3-1 victory over FC Dallas. This was also the only game won by more than a one-goal margin.

Toronto FC's Robert Earnshaw was the leading scorer for the weekend. His brace helped secure the Reds' first three points of the season.

The results leave two Canadian sides atop the standings. The Vancouver Whitecaps shifted into the top spot in the West with six points, as did the Montreal Impact in the East.

Overall, it was a fun weekend that helped shed some light on the state of the league. Here are eight takeaways from the second week of MLS.
