MLS Regular Season
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – The Chicago Fire and the New England Revolution played out a seesaw 2-2 draw on Saturday night that did little to improve either side's position in a congested Eastern Conference table.
The teams went in 1-1 at the break thank to Lee Nguyen’s 28th-minute strike and Shaun Maloney’s 44th-minute penalty kick, before goals from Fire captain Razvan Cocis and Kelyn Rowe in a more eventful second half saw the two share the spoils.
MONTREAL – Laurent Ciman doesn’t care for the Seattle Sounders’ woes.
Ciman’s header on a Marco Donadel free kick in the 88th minute handed the Sounders their sixth loss in seven games as the Montreal Impact defeated them by a 1-0 scoreline Saturday night at Stade Saputo. This was also the Sounders’ fifth straight away loss.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Thanks to a three-goal comeback by the visitors, Columbus Crew SC and Toronto FC played to a 3-3 draw in Columbus Saturday.
The clubs’ stars shone brightly, with Kei Kamara, Ethan Finlay, Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore all padding their stats in the wide-open match.
League-leaders Kamara and Finlay highlighted Crew SC’s evening, extending their goal and assist leads, respectively.

There is little room for error in the Western Conference playoff race right now. String a couple of wins together and you're sitting pretty. Go on a bit of a slump and the chasing pack will soon swallow you up.
Despite taking just one point from their last three matches, the Vancouver Whitecaps have managed to keep their heads above water. Last weekend's battling point at Portland was huge in that regard and leaves them sitting in third place in the Western Conference standings.
New York City FC fans will have to wait a little bit longer to see star midfielder Frank Lampard in action, as the club confirmed Saturday that he would miss Sunday's showdown with Orlando City SC at Yankee Stadium due to injury (2:30 pm ET; Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes, TSN2).
