After a 3-1 win over Inter Miami, the Chicago Fire look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive Tuesday night in Montreal. The playoff math is grim, but a postseason berth is still possible with four straight wins to close the season. Can they do it, or is it time to look to 2023? Also: 15,105 showed up at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview for Saturday’s game after the Bears bumped the Fire back to their old home for the weekend. With that kind of turnout, is Soldier Field really the best option for Fire home games going forward?
