The skies are trying to clear, the water is draining away, and everything is building up to tonight. The race for the playoffs continues as the Houston Dynamo host Western Conference foe Chivas USA. It won't be an easy task, but the Dynamo look to build upon the momentum from last weekend's victory and take all three points from the Goats.
