[MLS GOLEADORES] In Week 8 action, Thierry Henry scored the Red Bulls' winner against New England to pull away from San Jose's Chris
Wondolowski for the league scoring lead.
* Henry scored his ninth goal of the season by lobbing frozen keeper Matt Reis from 19 yards with a volley in the seventh minute. But
Henry had to be helped off the field midway through the first half when he went down with a hamstring injury that will likely keep him out of action for the nationally televised Cinco de Mayo match at
Los Angeles and key Eastern Conference matches against Houston and Philadelphia the following week.
* The 34-year-old Henry has scored his nine goals in eight appearances this season,
his third since joining MLS midway through the 2010 campaign. He scored two in 11 games in 2010 and 14 in 26 appearances in 2011.
* D.C. United's Brazilian striker Maicon
Santos scored twice in a 3-2 win over Houston to move into fourth place with six goals.
* The 28-year-old Santos is on pace for his most productive season since arriving in MLS in
2009, when he scored once in eight games for Chivas USA. In 2010 he scored once for Chivas USA and hit four after moving to Toronto. Last season he scored eight goals; six for Toronto and two for FC
