Montero's point streak was, perhaps, underplayed

New, 7 comments

I'm in the process of going through some league-wide data (more on this soon, I hope) and I discovered that Fredy Montero's recently ended consecutive games with a goal or an assist was one of the longest in MLS history.

Before being held in check against Chivas USA, Montero had gone nine straight matches with at least one goal or one assist. That is the longest since Amada Guevera did the same thing for the New York Metrostars in 2004.

Since I could only find records for this kind of thing that went back to 2003, it might actually be tied for the longest streak in league history. As it turns out, a reader helped me find the relevant information all the way back to 1996, and two players have had at least one point in a match in 11 consecutive games. Since 1999, though, no one has gone longer.

Certainly not world-changing information, but I thought it was interesting.
