When you head into a home game as the underdogs, you know things could be a little better. The Fire return home from a reasonably successful road trip— four points from a possible six— but are running headlong into one of the most potent attacking teams in the Eastern Conference. The Fire will have their work cut out for them and may have to settle for a point. But the Men In Red are also aware that good enough isn’t good enough, and that they need to flip the script. Tonight’s clash with Atlanta offers an opportunity to do that.
