Loons still have slim chance

Preview: The Loons (7-14-5, 10th in the West) still have a chance, albeit slim, to make the playoffs. Meanwhile, Vancouver (12-9-5, third in the West) could vault into first place in the conference with a win. Vancouver is unbeaten in four matches at 3-0-1. United could start a team record run with a positive result against Vancouver; it’s coming off a victory and a draw.

Quotable: “We know that we can beat any team in this league, I’m pretty sure. It’s all about attitude. … When you play every three days, it’s all about taking it easy and rest and try to get your body in shape.” — United center back Francisco Calvo on playing Vancouver on Wednesday and Montreal on Saturday.

Numbers: The Loons have taken the fewest shots in the league with 259 while Vancouver is third from the bottom with 303.

Injuries: D David Edgar (PCL/MCL) and M Matias Laba (ACL) are out for Vancouver. M Bernardo Anor (leg), D Thomas de Villardi (Achilles), D Jermaine Taylor (concussion) and M Sam Cronin (concussion) are out for United.
