The Montreal Impact's MLS playoff hopes are alive -- barely -- following a 2-0 win over visiting Toronto FC Sunday.
Montreal came into the game in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, four points back of D.C. United and five back of the Columbus Crew.
D.C. United clinched a playoff spot with a 3-1 win over New York City FC, but Columbus dropped a 2-1 game to Orlando, leaving the Crew with a two-point lead over the Impact heading into the final games of MLS' regular season.
If Montreal can win...
Saphir Taider had a goal and an assist in the first half and Evan Bush made nine saves as the Montreal Impact improved their playoff chances with a 3-0 defeat over the visiting Columbus Crew on Saturday.
The Impact moved five points ahead of D.C. United for the last postseason spot in the Eastern Conference with two matches left. D.C. United has five matches remaining starting Sunday at home versus Chicago.
Columbus would have clinched a berth with a win or tie but remains fourth in East for now.
