Charlie Davies was hero for Revolution in 2014 playoff series vs. Red Bulls

His tying goal just before halftime was enough to spark a second-half improvement for the Revolution. 

Still, New England wound up trailing 2-1 with about 20 minutes remaining and Davies again scored to give the Revolution the series win.

Their hard-fought battle against the Red Bulls was enough to push them to the MLS Cup final for the first time since 2007. Although they couldn't pull off the win in the final, their 2014 ECF against New York was inspiring.

You can re-live the second leg of the ECF with its re-airing on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston as part of our Classic Revs series.

Revolution Classics: How to watch Revs vs. Red Bulls 2014 Eastern Conference Championship series

With no MLS games for the foreseeable future, NBC Sports Boston will give New England Revolution fans a chance to get their fix by re-airing some classic games, beginning Saturday afternoon with a look back at the 2014 Eastern Conference Championship series against the New York Red Bulls. 

In the first leg of the series, more than 1,200 Revolution fans traveled to New York to watch their club take on the Red Bulls on Nov. 23, 2014. That traveling paid off, too, as both Jermaine Jones and Teal Bunbury had a goal and an assist in the match. While Jones and Bunbury handled things up top, Bobby Shuttleworth stopped six of seven shots in goal.

This match was magical for a Revs side who lacked possession (39.7 percent), pass accuracy (72 percent) and shots on goal (four) -- they trailed in all of those categories. Although they didn't control the pace of play, they made their scoring opportunities count in a 2-1 win over the Red Bulls.

The Revs' victory was their first-ever win at Red Bull Arena and their first win on the road over the Red Bulls in seven years. 

How to Watch

NBC Sports Boston will be re-airing this match on Saturday, April 4 at 4 p.m. ET. You can watch on TV on NBC Sports Boston, or stream the action via NBCSportsBoston.com.

 

Do New England Revolution have the talent to win 2020 MLS Cup?

Do New England Revolution have the talent to win 2020 MLS Cup?

After a breakout 2019 season, do the New England Revolution have enough talent to win the 2020 MLS Cup?

There are plenty of reasons to be hopeful of a strong campaign entering Saturday afternoon's season opener versus the Montreal Impact. One of them is the three-headed monster leading the Revolution attack -- Gustavo Bou, Carles Gil and Adam Buksa.

Buksa arrived over the offseason for the second-largest transfer fee in club history (around $4 million, per reports). His addition gives the Revolution three designated players (the max for every MLS roster). Buksa stands 6-foot-3, making him dangerous in the air and a difficult player for opposing center backs to defend.

Bou joined the Revolution in July of last season and instantly made an impact with a goal in his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps. He scored nine goals in 14 league games to help lead the Revs back to the MLS playoffs for the first time since 2015.
