Whether this is truly a make-or-break game for the Men In Red depends, in large part, on how willing you are to have your heart broken yet again. In theory, the Fire can keep their playoff hopes alive with a win over the top ranked team in the conference. In theory, a loss won’t completely kill them off quite yet. In practice, we’re not sure if that passes the sniff test. Either way, tonight’s result will answer some pressing questions.
