BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Mike Magee made sure Chicagos run to the playoffs wouldnt be spoiled by Toronto FC. Magee scored his 20th goal of the season on a second half penalty kick to lead the hosts to a 1-0 win Saturday and put the Fire on verge of clinching a playoff berth. Toronto (5-17-11) missed their own chances as they fell to Chicago for the eighth time in 16 all-time meetings. "We knew wed have our opportunities, and what we didnt want to do was go down early," Toronto coach Ryan Nelson said. "The chances we had in the first half, they were incredibly good. But we have to finish. We didnt." Toronto goalkeeper Stefan Frei, making his 2013 debut in goal with Joseph Bendiks one-game suspension, had two saves on the night. The first was a diving stop on a Juan Luis Anangono header that drew raves from Nelson. "That save that Stefan made was probably for me the save of the season," Nelson said. "I havent seen it again but just from watching it live, I cant think of any (better) save that Ive seen." But Frei couldnt stop Magee, who had missed his previous penalty kick try last month against Montreal. "The last one off the post was in the back of my mind," said Magee, now tied for MLS scoring lead with Montreals Marco Di Vaio. "(But) I got up there with all the confidence in the world. I was never going to miss that." Magee had a free kick into a crowd lined in front of Frei and officials called Toronto for a handball in the ensuing scramble, leading to the penalty kick. The Fire forward then skipped a shot into the back of the net. "Very disappointing with the penalty kick decision," defender and captain Steven Caldwell said. "We felt that it was a very poor decision by the referee and it cost us a point, or possibly three." The Fire (14-12-7) are temporarily tied for third in the Eastern Conference with Montreal. A win next Sunday in New York or a loss or tie by New England would lock up Chicagos playoff berth. Toronto and the Fire tied 1-1 on Sept. 11 at BMO Field. Since then Toronto has dropped four of its last five heading into next Saturdays season finale against Montreal. A 4-1 victory over D.C. United on Sept. 28 is the lone bright spot in that run.

The top-two defenceman has four goals and 20 assists, 30 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating in 53 games with Columbus this season.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - In a city defined by Hollywood star power, Calgary Flames rookie forward Johnny Gaudreau showed the Los Angeles Kings why he might be the NHLs next big thing.Gaudreau scored twice in the final 2:12 of the third period to complete his first career hat trick, Mark Giordano delivered the winning goal in overtime, and the Flames ended an eight-game losing streak by rallying for a 4-3 win over the Kings on Monday night.Already sporting the title Johnny Hockey, Gaudreau shocked the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Kings looked set to head into the Christmas break with a three-game, home-winning streak before Gaudreau slipped a shot under Jonathan Quicks left leg to cut the deficit to 3-2.Just 1:13 later, Gaudreau sent the puck off defenceman Drew Doughtys skate and into the net to tie it on what seemed more like a backhanded centring pass than a shot.Before the stunned Kings could regroup, Gaudreau nearly ended the game in overtime on a 2-on-1 break, forcing Quick to make a sprawling save. Quick had no such luck against Giordano seconds later as the puck slid under his stick and across the crease. Giordano put it into the net 4:07 into overtime.We fell behind, but the guys were great on the bench and in the room, Flames coach Bob Hartley said. We felt like we had a chance. Its funny, on the bench it felt like the same feeling when we were collecting wins.The Flames (18-15-3) emerged as one of the leagues surprising upstarts earlier this season, but an eight-game losing streak had extinguished that enthusiasm.dddddddddddd That joy was back, with Giordano recalling a similar win at this point last season.The only thing that comes to mind was last year at Christmas, we did something similar against St. Louis, he said. We finally got a break.Jonas Hiller stopped 31 shots for the Flames, who had earned only three points in their previous nine games.For Gaudreau, who has 10 goals this season, the focus was not on his heroics but a much-needed result.We were pretty thrilled, said Gaudreau, who also scored on the power play late in the second period. The hard work finally paid off. We were (going) 2-3 weeks there without a win, so it was getting a little frustrating.Instead, the frustration was passed on to the Kings (17-11-7), who couldnt turn goals by Trevor Lewis, Marian Gaborik and Jamie McBain into a win.Our power play was good, our penalty kill was good, and our five-on-five probably wasnt what it needed to be, captain Dustin Brown said. As a result, we let a lead slip away. Its a divisional game, and at the end of the day it cost us two points.NOTES: The Kings had won all nine previous home games this season in which they had scored on the power play. . Gaborik scored in his fifth consecutive game, his longest goal streak since a seven-game run with the New York Rangers in December 2011. . The Kings and Flames will return to action with home games on Dec. 27 before facing off for the second of five regular-season meetings on two days later in Calgary. ' ' '
