The New England Revolution spent the month of May running rampant through any opposition in their path, scoring 14 goals in a streak of four games that catapulted the team to the top of the Eastern Conference. The Revs offensive outburst showed exactly what it looked like when a team clicks, but the creativity and flair of the team are defined by midfielder Lee Nguyen.

Patrick Mullins was widely-regarded as the best player in college soccer over the past two years, but injuries had kept him from flashing that quality early on in his rookie season.

Mullins finally had a chance to show his stuff this weekend and he showed why he was so highly-rated, scoring a beautiful goal and drawing the eventual match-winning penalty kick in the New England Revolution's 2-1 victory against Toronto FC.

New England beat Toronto 2-1 in an evenly played game Saturday in Toronto, marking the first time they took three points at BMO Field. Toronto lost the game in big part because of their tendency to make the big mistake.

Doneil Henry, the promising young Toronto defender, had a tough day, to say the least.

1. It should have been Lee Nguyen- Diego Fagundez wanted to take the penalty kick in second half stoppage time, but Jay Heaps was right to give it to Nguyen. Nguyen is arguably the field player in the best run of form and had already had momentum from converting from the spot last weekend versus Chicago.

In their fourth game of the season, the Revs finally began to cook. They improved their play in all three fundamental areas – defense, midfield, and offense – and defeated a team that is notably difficult to beat at home. Score? 2 to 1.

The Revs basically controlled the first half, playing, as announcer Brad Feldman commented, as if they were the home team, rather than San Jose.
