For the Revs, it's all about wins from here on out. The time for adjusting and fixing mistakes is over. The time for producing results is now. Sitting in 8th place in the Eastern Conference standings with 23 points, the New England Revolution basically need to go on a late-season tear if they want to keep their playoff dreams alive. And it's got to start now. Meanwhile, tonight's opponent's, the Montreal Impact, sit just outside of a playoff spot in 6th and are surely hungry for points on the road as they set their sights on a possible playoff berth in their very first MLS season.
Tonight will be the second time these two sides square off, this time in the United States. In their last meeting, Montreal's Sanna Nyassi played both the provider and finisher on both goals that saw the Revolution fall to their newest Eastern Conference foes.
The Revolution not only desperately need a win, but also need to offer some answers to their growing list of follies and foibles over the past month or so. Can they turn it around tonight? Time to find out.
