It was Montreal that got the better of that first matchup, giving head coach Thierry Henry his first MLS win with a 2-1 result thanks to an 80th-minute game-winning chip from Maxi Urruti. New England's Teal Bunbury had shot the Revs out to an early lead in the 13th minute, but Romell Quioto equalized in the 37th, setting the stage for Urruti's late heroics.
The victory was part of a positive start to Henry's first year in charge for Montreal, as the Impact won their Concacaf Champions League series with Saprissa and also managed a 2-2 road draw against FC Dallas on March 7.
The Revs were 0-1-1 before the league's postponement with the defeat to Montreal and a 1-1 road draw against Chicago Fire FC, but they looked much improved last season after the hiring of Bruce Arena, and the Designated Player duo of Carles Gil and Gustavo Bou is always a handful for any opponent.
