FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Sometimes, you just need a little bit of luck to break out of a scoring slump. After knocking on the door for the first 290 minutes of the season, the New England Revolution finally broke through in the 21st minute -- albeit with the help of a fortuitous deflection -- during Saturday's 2-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes. The play that put the Revolution on the board for the first time in 2015 originated on a ball that Daigo Kobayashi won in the midfield.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- At some point this spring, the goal that's eluded the Revolution through their first three will come. It's just a matter of time. As such, Lee Nguyen isn't fretting about his club's scoring struggles. Nguyen, who found the back of the net a team-best 18 times last year, believes that the chances created during the Revolution's last two matches are proof positive that goal No. 1 is just around the corner. "We're really close," Nguyen said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After conceding five goals and failing to score in their first two matches of the season, the New England Revolution knew they'd have to step it up to get a result from Saturday's game against the Montreal Impact. Although Revolution coach Jay Heaps was forced to revamp his back line due to an injury and a suspension, his defense rose to the occasion to secure the team's first point of the season in a scoreless draw. "We knew if we didn't give anything away, we'd have a chance," Revolution center back Darrius Barnes said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Typically, when it comes to preparing for early-season opponents, coaches often lean on information gathered from the previous year. However, New England Revolution coach Jay Heaps won't be relying on film archives with the Montreal Impact up next. After the Impact added 14 new players during the offseason, the team that awaits the Revs in Saturday's home opener is much different than the one they faced five months ago. But that's only half the story.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Days after his squad suffered a humbling 3-0 loss in Seattle, Revolution coach Jay Heaps invoked a familiar concept within the confines of Gillette Stadium: On to the next one. With the season-opening defeat shrinking in the rearview, the Revolution have firmly turned their attention to Sunday’s match against expansion side New York City FC at Yankee Stadium.
