Update: Scoreless draw. But according to this MLSsoccer.com report, former Sounder Freddie Ljungberg had a great chance to score for the Fire and botched it.
Here's the key paragraph:
Chicago, however, should have scored in the 48th minute. Designated Player Nery Castillo slipped fellow DP Freddie Ljungberg behind Toronto’s offside trap, allowing the Swedish forward to run to goal completely uninhibited. Ljungberg looked poised to put the Fire ahead, but he blew his one-on-one chance with Toronto goalkeeper Stefan Frei, sending his rolling shot wide of the right post.
