Who stood out—and who didn't—during the weekend draw?

The Revolution secured a come-from-behind draw against D.C. United over the weekend, using a second-half own goal to preserve a point. But the Revs knew they could have—and probably should have—done better. In fact, Jay Heaps said his team felt "gutted" after the match, despite earning results in consecutive outings.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – It has been a frustrating season for the New England Revolution in all aspects of the field, but particularly offensively where, despite an abundance of talent, the production hasn't been there. For once, on Saturday evening, the Revolution offense showed just what it was capable of and it was a sight to behold as the team put on a master class offensively in a dominating 3-1 victory over New York City FC in front of 23,235 at Gillette Stadium.

It all started when Nguyen played a short corner to Kelyn Rowe, who found Scott Caldwell at the top of the box.
