Inside the numbers on Revs' surprising playoff run

Boston

The New England Revolution entered the 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs without a postseason win in six years.

But the Revs have ripped off three straight wins in the last couple of weeks, knocking off theĀ Montreal Impact, top-seeded Philadelphia Union and Orlando City SC to reach the Eastern Conference Final, where they'll take on the Columbus Crew.

Part of their success has been health. After their trio of Designated Players Gustavo Bou, Adam Buksa, and Carles Gil played together in just four games this season, the threesome has racked up six goals and four assists in the playoffs, with Gil finding the score sheet in each game.

Part has been excellent play at the back end, where Matt Turner is showing exactly why he's a finalist for MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.

Part has been strong leadership from Bruce Arena, whose success in the MLS Cup Playoffs is unparalleled. After winning five championships with D.C. United and the L.A. Galaxy, Arena is hoping to lead the Revs to their first championship in franchise history.

Let's take a closer look at how the Revolution have gotten to this point -- and what lies ahead next weekend.
