Revolution on upswing

Lee Nguyen offered an appropriate conclusion to the Revolution’s playoff chase with his equalizer in a 2-2 draw at Montreal on Saturday.Nguyen’s looping effort curled off a lunging defender, dipped at the perfect time in its arc and nestled behind stranded Impact keeper Evan Bush. The shot did not take the most direct route to goal, but the end result secured a point and a postseason berth with two matches remaining in the regular season.“It’s been a few seasons’ worth of ups and downs in one,” Revolution coach Jay Heaps said yesterday.

Revs prepping for unpredictable Impact

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Montreal Impact were eliminated from the postseason conversation weeks ago, but to Revolution coach Jay Heaps, game-planning for Saturday's foe presents a unique challenge. While the Revolution have already faced the Impact twice already this year -- including a 2-1 win just last month -- Heaps knows that planning against a squad that routinely changes its lineup week to week will be a test for him and his staff.

Heaps: Crew tried to 'instigate' Jones

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Following Saturday's loss in Columbus, Revolution coach Jay Heaps was none too pleased about the way Jermaine Jones was apparently targeted for abuse by the Crew. Jones came on in the second half of Saturday's game hoping to unlock a scoreless game. But knowing the midfielder's reputation for having a short temper, the Crew didn't bypass an opportunity to provoke a reaction from him -- something even more evident to Heaps after watching the game film.
