The window of opportunity to get back into the playoff race keeps getting smaller and smaller for Toronto FC.
TFC's post-season hopes were dealt another crushing blow in Saturday's 1-0 loss to CF Montreal at Stade Saputo, a result that extended the team's winless streak to five games, with four losses. Overall, the Reds have just two victories and eight points from their previous MLS 15 matches.
