Saturday is a busy day in MLS play, as several teams in the playoff hunt collide as the season winds down.

An Eastern conference clash between Toronto FC and the Philadelphia Union kickstarts the action, as TFC looks to clinch a spot in the playoffs with a win. In addition, the New York Red Bulls can book a spot in the postseason with a victory over the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena.

In the West, the Colorado Rapids can take a step towards catching FC Dallas in a meeting with the struggling Vancouver Whitecaps, who continue to fall out of the Western Conference race.

Elsewhere, Orlando City and D.C. United battle to get above the red line, while the Houston Dynamo look to continue to play spoiler against the Portland Timbers.
