Playoff race big picture

Atlanta, New England, Orlando all win

That narrow 1-0 loss at Gillette Stadium hurts the Impact: not only no team ahead of the Bleu-blanc-noir has lost this weekend, but all chasers got points. Thus, the noose is tightening around the Montreal squad, who will need favourable results elsewhere to get over the playoff line.
