- Thierry Henry's goal after seven minutes provided the difference when these teams met earlier in the season. That was the seventh straight home win for New York in this series.
- Jan Gunnar Solli didn't score in his first 42 MLS games, but then notched twice in a row, the most recent against Toronto FC last weekend.
- New England signed Jerry Bengtson as a Designated Player this week. The powerful Honduran striker might not have his visa in time to make this match, however.
