Sure, it's entertaining, but how effective is this wide-open, attack-first, defend-later style that Revolution coach Jay Heaps has advocated for and implemented throughout his three-year tenure?

A quick look at this year's statistics will show you that it's generally a viable tactic: 17 wins, 13 losses, and four ties were enough the Revolution into the playoffs.

After Saturday's explosive performance at Crew Stadium, it would take a complete meltdown or a historic comeback to keep the Revolution from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals. But don't tell that to coach Jay Heaps.

Following his club's four-goal offensive flurry in the first leg of the Conference Semifinals, Heaps was already contemplating the challenge that awaited the Revolution in Sunday's return leg at Gillette Stadium.

Staying True to Themselves

If anyone thought the Revolution were going to approach Saturday's Conference Semifinal clash in Columbus cautiously and playing for the counter, the tenor of the entire 90 proved them wrong.

While many teams often adopt a conservative, defend-first approach on the road during the postseason, coach Jay Heaps didn't see any reason to deviate from his club's attack-first philosophy.

While the offense is flourishing in many different areas, one player that continues to bring the Revolution offense to a new level is none other than the striker-turned-winger himself, Teal Bunbury.

The New England Revolution have twice faced the Columbus Crew in the playoffs and came out on top both times. In 2002, the Revolution advanced past the Crew in the then best-of-three Eastern Conference Finals, drawing both home games at Gillette Stadium, but coming up with a huge 1-0 road win, behind a Jay Heaps game winning goal, to advance to their first ever MLS Cup.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. If you talk to anyone in Revolution blue this week, you might get the impression that the Eastern Conference Semifinal series isn'tcurrently weighted4-2 in favor of the locals, but rather, knotted at 0-0. And that's not due to bad math, to be sure.

Last Saturday, the Revs got four terrific goals to beat the Crew 4-2, almost guaranteeing their advancement to the league finals, very likely against the Red Bulls, who beat DC United in their first game, 2-0.

The Revs-Crew score was reflective of the game in general, with the Revs almost completely shutting down the Crew's dynamic scoring duo of Frederico Higuain and Ethan Finlay, and doing an excellent job curtailing midfielder Tony Tchani's runs with the ball and the accurate through passes.

A Bold Approach

The Revolution's offense last weekend was fueled by three things: Charlie Davies's nose for goal, Lee Nguyen's persistence, and the team's overall ability to create and convert chances when play opens up.

That combination of factors meant thatColumbus, even withitstalented midfield,simply couldn't keep up, as the Revolution picked up an impressive 4-2 road victory in game one of the conference semifinal series.

For Charlie Davies, Saturday's match in Columbus meant plenty, and for reasons that went beyond the fact that it was first leg of the Conference Semifinals.

The last time the Revolution visited Crew Stadium, Davies was denied of a golden chance to equalize by goalkeeper Steve Clark in the waning minutes of a one-nil match that the Revolution eventually lost on Sept.
