The Chicago Fire hit the road to take on the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

The Chicago Fire and New England Revolution both dropped out of the U.S. Open Cup earlier than expected, so Saturday's feature game in MLS play should show off two teams hungry for a win. The staff over at Hot Time in Old Town and The Bent Musket came together for a reciprocal question-and-answer piece previewing the match, and both sides agree it will a fun one on Saturday.

Here is a bit from the chat that focuses on some key players for the Revolution:

Lee Nguyen has been fantastic, especially from an excitement standpoint. He has great talent on the ball and does well in tight spaces, something the Revs haven't had in quite some time, and his 2 goals and 2 assists make him probably the second-most productive player on the roster. Blake Brettschneider is coming around as a target man, but his contributions have been muted, and it's not likely he'll pan out to be much more than a depth guy going forward.

As for Saer Sene, not enough can be said for the big Frenchman and his blonde mohawk. He leads the team in seven goals, and even if he slows down his scoring pace, he's on track to be the squad's first double-digit goalscorer since Taylor Twellman all the way back in 2007.

Here is the information you need to find Saturday's game on TV:
