Although many may argue that the New England Revolution took three points last night due to New York being without six of their starters, I think it bears mentioning that the Red Bulls still had the services of Joel Lindpere, Dane Richards, Dax McCarty, and Kenny Cooper. And that says a lot about the Revolution midfield and particularly their back-line in this match-up.
