Stat check: Blake continues surge at the top

We’re just three weeks into the season, but the Union have picked up wins in back-to-back contests for the first time since May 24, 2015. In doing so, they have 6 points and sit on top of the Eastern Conference table alongside Montreal Impact. Montreal does own the tiebreak, for what it’s worth, but we’re only three games into a long season anyhow.
