The Canadian international scored yet another brace against NYCFC, leading the Lions to a 2-1 road win at Yankee Stadium.
New York City FC squandered opportunity after opportunity to put away the Montreal Impact on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Shot after shot went wide of the mark as NYCFC failed to properly seal what should have been a runaway home win.
Eventually, the Impact made NYCFC pay for their missteps, stealing a hard-fought point at Yankee Stadium.
The cities of New York and Chicago have always been just a bit different, even if they have plenty in common. They're two of the most recognizable metropolitainsin the world, but both present an entirely different vibe. They aren't traditional rivals by any means, except when it comes to pizza, even if their respective sports franchiseshave collided for plenty ofmemorable momentsin the past.

New York City beat Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Friday night to clamberback to the top of the MLSEastern Conference table.
Indeed, it looked like Jack Harrison's 52nd-minute opener was shaping up to be the only goal of the match right up until David Villa doubled New York's tally in the final minute of normal time with a proper belter of a strike.
Week six of the MLS regular season is in the books, and it brought some shakeups to this week's power rankings.
Several teams at the top struggled, as just three of the top ten managed to earn victories this weekend, while the likes of New York City FC, the New York Red Bulls, the Houston Dynamo, and the Columbus Crew all lost to lower-ranked opposition.
The cold in the northern half of the United States wasn't enough to stop two of the hottest performances of MLS Week 2. Atlanta United dismantled Minnesota United's back line for six goals, while New York City FC downed D.C. United with ease in frigid temperatures at Yankee Stadium.
Elsewhere, a Western Conference rookie continued to impress and a few unexpected sides extended their perfect records into Week 3.
ORLANDO, Fla. — New York City FC was the better side in terms of keeping possession.New York City FC was the better side in terms ofcreating chances. New York City FC was the better side in terms of keepingits players on the field.
None of that was enough to ruin Orlando City's festive night, though.
The Union lost in Chester. The Steel lost in Harrisburg. In Frisco, a group of teenagers brought joy to the field, finishing fourth in the Generation Adidas Cup. The Philadelphia Union U17s are PSP's players of the week.
David Villa's goal wasn't the difference, but it was a dagger nonetheless.
The Philadelphia Union yet lose yet again, this time to hated rival New York City FC. The Union had a number of good chances with movement and getting the ball into dangerous areas in the first half, but they were unable to convert in the final third.
Alex Muyl and Bradley Wright-Phillips scored early in the second half as United's RBA nightmares continued
D.C. United were undone early in the second half against the New York Red Bulls, conceding two goals as United's rivals took the first leg of the 2017 edition of the Atlantic Cup. Alex Muyl scored his first goal of the season just moments into the second half, and Bradley Wright-Phillips made it two in the 62nd minute.
Watch Lucho and Bill do work, as well as some quiet indicators for United at the back
I like winning, as D.C. United did Saturday over New York City FC. But if you're looking for animated moments of a celebratory nature this may not be the post for you. This isn't to say that we hated the win; we don't, but there were some things to take a closer look at.
Spotted at RFK Stadium Saturday night taking in D.C. United's win over New York City FC? Markelle Fultz, a freshman point guard from the University of Washington, who is expected to be the first pick in this year's NBA draft:

United ahead into a three game road trip with back to back wins at home
Looking to exact revenge over New York City FC for last month's 4-0 drubbing, D.C. United didn't set the world on fire in the first half. Instead of dictating the game, United were on the back foot for the last part of the second half.
Lloyd Sam and Luciano Acosta scored in the second half, before United survived a late David Villa goal
D.C. United didn't exactly get a full measure of revenge on New York City FC on Saturday afternoon at RFK Stadium, but the Black-and-Red did enough to get all three points, taking down City 2-1 before 18,855.
United welcome the Philadelphia Union to RFK Stadium, looking for their first win in 2017
The start of the 2017 season has not been the best for D.C. United. Through three games, the Black-and-Red have just one point, in a season opening scoreless draw against Sporting Kansas City. That was followed up with a 4-0 loss to New York City FC, and a 2-0 defeat at home to Columbus Crew SC.
D.C. United was hoping to get some sort of result in a place (Yankee Stadium) they hadn't against a team (New York City FC) opening up a stadium for another team the previous week. But the 4-0 loss showed several different things of concern for fans, perhaps things beyond what could be dismissed as a one-off rout.
Let's dispose of the NYCFC game as quickly as possible
Well that was another poor performance from D.C. United, but the guys from Filibuster are here to talk you through it. We talk about the game against New York City FC and start with some praise for Ian Harkes before diving into everything that went wrong.
United were again largely toothless without Luciano Acosta
It was not much of a surprise an hour before kickoff on Sunday, with D.C. United visiting New York City FC, that Luciano Acosta was once again missing from the gameday squad. Head coach Ben Olsen had said throughout the week the playmaker was day-to-day with an ankle injury, and as of Tuesday Acosta had not returned to the practice field.
Both teams are looking to make up for disappointing opening weekends—so which one will?
All right, so the first game of the season didn't go exactly as hoped, did it? And now D.C. United have hit the road to take on New York City FC. NYCFC lost their first game (away to Orlando City), so they'll be looking to wrap up three points at home, while DCU will be aiming to make the statement they'd wanted to make last weekend.
Without the diminutive playmaker, United will stick with its opening lineup
D.C. United takes its first and only road trip to New York City this Sunday, going to Yankee Stadium to face off against New York City FC. The Pigeons have a couple of names that you definitely know: Andrea Pirlo, David Villa, and Ethan White, plus a number of lesser known players that they're trying to work into a coherent whole.
