There's no shortage of storylines going into the conference championship round of this year's MLS Cup Playoffs, which resume November 23. Landon Donovan, in the last season of his 14-year career, has the opportunity to go out a champion. Thierry Henry, who is arguably the best player in the league, might not play on New England's notoriously unforgiving turf. And the Seattle Sounders, a squad that features multiple members of the 2014 U.S. Men's World Cup team, has a chance to finish on top.

To help us figure it all out, we elicited the help of Jimmy Conrad, the MLS star-turned-broadcaster who you might recognize from his hosting duties on KICKTV. Enjoy.
