FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The situation may be vastly different this week than it was seven days ago, but don’t expect the Revolution to alter course with Sunday’s second leg of the Conference Semifinals on tap. The Revolution put themselves in a remarkably favorable situation thanks to Saturday’s 4-2 road win over the Crew, and they don't intend to tinker with their approach, especially with the stage set for Gillette Stadium. “We want to go into (Sunday’s) game with the exact same energy and effort,” Revolution coach Jay Heaps said.

"It's always good to get the result," Heaps said. "But we were really happy with the way we defended, giving up very few shots, and not giving up a goal was exactly our game plan.
