Revs top Toronto in tune-up for playoffs

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Jay Heaps knew that the outcome of Saturday's season finale wouldn't impact his team's spot on the table. But that didn't mean it was a meaningless match.

The kind of play that his club would need in order to take three points from a conference nemesis for the first time this season.
