BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) - Davy Arnaud and Michael Harrington scored to help Kansas City beat Chicago 2-0 on Tuesday night, ending the Wizards' three-match losing streak and keep alive their playoffs hopes.

The Wizards need to win their last two matches and have Colorado lose its last two to take the final playoff spot. Kansas City holds the tiebreaker between the teams.

Arnaud opened the scoring by right-footing a curling shot 48 seconds into first-half stoppage time. He one-timed a pass from Teal Bunbury on the right side for his sixth goal of the season.

Bunbury ripped a low shot past Fire goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra in the 80th minutes for a two-goal advantage, effectively sealing the outcome.

Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen was lightly tested by Chicago, needing to make only two saves to collect his 10th shutout of the season.
