GameDay 7: Putting out the Fire

Chicago and Kansas City. There was a time (oh, about a month ago maybe?) when these Midwestern rivals were considered amongst the best defensive teams in Major League Soccer. Then both teams installed turnstiles in front of their own net. Between the two teams they've allowed 10 goals in the last two games. (It's worth noting that both of these teams posted back-to-back shutouts earlier this season.) And now, just one point separates the two in the (admittedly waaaaaay too early to truly matter) Eastern Conference standings.
