Crew, Revs play to scoreless draw

The New England Revolution have been a real revelation at home this year, showing considerable improvement at Gillette Stadium under head coach Jay Heaps, but on Saturday the Revs couldn't get past Columbus Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum, who helped the Crew continue their improbable unbeaten run.

Gruenebaum made seven saves to help the Crew salvage a 0-0 draw on the road against New England, a result that helped the Crew push their unbeaten streak to six matches.

Columbus held the edge in possession on the night, but couldn't produce viable chances, with Matt Reis recording just three saves to earn the shutout.

The draw snapped a two-match winning streak for the Crew, who are still unbeaten in six games. The draw marked just the third time this year the Revs have dropped points at home, a result that keeps the Revs stuck in seventh place in the East.

Here are the match highlights:
