Revs Limp into Chicago for Second Game

Who: Real Salt Lake at New England Revolution
What: MLS Eastern Conference Semifinal - Leg 2
Where: Toyota Park, Bridgeview, Ill.
When:Thursday, 8:45 p.m. (ESPN2)

The New England Revolution put in a good performance in Game One last Thursday at Gillette Stadium, but couldn't do enough to get a win. Now the Revs travel to Chicago for the final leg of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series with the Fire tied at 0-0 on aggregate goals.

Again without several key players due to injury, the Revs' offense will have to find a way through Chicago's backline if they are to advance to the Eastern Conference Final.

The Revs top three leading scorers, Taylor Twellman (8 goals, 2 assists), Steve Ralston (8 goals, 7 assists), and Adam Cristman (6 goals, 1 assist), are all out injured. Combined with the suspended Khano Smith (2 goals, 3 assists), the Revs will be without four players who combined to score 24 of the team’s 40 goals this season.
