Wednesday night was a lesson in playoff soccer for the chicago fire. in its first playoff appearance since 2009, the fire was knocked out after just one game, losing 2-1 to the houston dynamo at toyota park. and after going 1-3-1 in its final five regular-season games, the fire couldn't regain any momentum.
