In any other situation, Sunday's 3-2 loss to the New England Revolution would have been the bitter en of an underwhelming season for Montreal Impact fans. Instead, it was a time for celebration.

It was their captain Patrice Bernier's going away party, a final game before the man from the Montreal suburbs would call it a career.

It was Patrice Bernier's going away party at Stade Saputo but the New England Revolution were not going to give them an easy matchup. With goals from Diego Fagundez, Krisztian Nemeth, and Kelyn Rowe, the Revolution spoiled the party and ran away with a 3-2 victory in stoppage time.

High on emotions, Stade Saputo was thrown a cold shower by Diego Fagundez at the 19th minute.

The two worst teams in the Eastern conference square off this Saturday. Montreal is looking to build on their first victory of 2017. The winless streak is significant for the Union, but so is their four game losing streak. Is this the week Jim Curtin's men change their fortune?

There were a lot of moments that changed the momentum of the Philadelphia Union's draw with the Montreal Impact.

1.) Slow start - The Union didn't get out to the best start, gifting the Montreal Impact two good chances in the opening minutes. First, a great ball in to Matteo Mancuso narrowly missed going into the net:

The Philadelphia back line is not in sync on this at all.

Montreal Impact captain Patrice Bernier was not consistently starting games in the final run of the MLS regular season, but the Canadian national team midfielder has seen an outstanding resurgence in form during the MLS Cup Playoffs.

In two postseason games over the span of four days, Bernier has recorded two goals and an assist to put the Impact in great position to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

It's a good moment for the Black-and-Red to be playing a shorthanded, possibly tired IMFC squad.

After two crazy games at RFK Stadium D.C. United is back on the road tonight, facing a Montreal Impact team that has been a very inhospitable host in Quebec. The Impact sit sixth in the Eastern Conference and are on a three-game unbeaten streak, most recently playing to a 1-1 tie with the Red Bulls Wednesday night.

For the majority of this season the Montreal Impact's points total has put them at the top of the Eastern Conference even though they frequently are on the end of bad losses.

Crew stun Impact with comeback victory at Stade Saputo

Federico Higuaín's magic touch helped the Columbus Crew (10-14-5, 35 pts.) continue to keep their playoff hopes alive with two assists in the Crew's 2-1 comeback win over the Montreal Impact (13-8-6, 45 pts.) at the Stade Saputo on Saturday.

The Impact, who ceded the top-spot in the Eastern Conference to the New York Red Bulls with the loss, dominated much of the game and created plenty of chances, but it took their eighth corner of the match in the 24th minute for Montreal to grab the lead.

Even with a number of first team regulars left back home, the Montreal Impact looked like they had a chance to get out of Guatemala with at least a point.

Instead, a last-gasp goal by CD Heredia just before the end of regulation sent the Impact to a 1-0 defeat on the turf of Estadio Cementos Progreso.

D.C. United Scouting Report: Montreal Impact

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

The Montreal Impact are something of an anomaly in MLS. It's not just the use of French, or the choice to have two different predominantly blue uniforms. The Impact's emphasis on keeping the ball on the ground and hitting teams on the counter is rather unusual. Possession teams in MLS generally try to play on the front foot as much as possible, while our counterattacking teams are often more focused on athleticism and longer passes out of the back than they are the technical ability required to connect several passes at a high speed through the midfield.

Saturday at Sporting Park, Sporting KC will look to end two streaks, the first, their own goalless drought, which now stands at 193 minutes after two 0-0 draws with Chicago and New England. The second streak they'll look to end is Montreal's perfect start to the season. They're the last remaining team in the league to have a perfect record, that currently stands at 4-0.

It might be an international fixture period, but that isn't stopping Major League Soccer from putting on a full slate of matches today.

The Montreal Impact will look to improve to 4-0 today when they take on a short-handed New York Red Bulls side at Stade Saputo. Patrice Bernier has been one of the league's best players early in the season and will be looking to dominate the middle against a good New York midfield that features Dax McCarty.

Given the performance Bill Hamid turned in, he would have been a serious contender no matter how many goals were scored around the league.

Montreal started the season with four straight wins and drew some attention from national media as a front runner in the East but a bye week preceded by a loss in Kansas City and a tie at home has pushed them out of the spotlight somewhat. Two road wins (at Seattle and Portland) to begin the year followed by home wins against Toronto FC and New York fueled early band wagon jumping with some outlets perching them atop their always arguable "power rankings".
