Why the Montreal Impact's 3-0 road win is more impressive than you think

All of the context surrounding the Montreal Impact's trip to New England to play the Revolution on Wednesday night would have hinted at a Revs victory. 

The Impact were on the road again, without stars Ignacio Piatti and Saphir Taider, coming off a 3-0 loss just four days ago. Most importantly, due to a flight cancellation on Tuesday then delay Wednesday, the Impact only arrived in New England a few hours before kickoff. 

None of it mattered. 

The Impact persevered, frustrating the hosts before scoring three late goals to seal a 3-0 victory behind Shamit Shome's 79th minute winner and a brace from substitute Anthony Jackson-Hamel.

Now, the Impact focus on another Eastern Conference showdown this weekend, hosting the Chicago Fire on Sunday (12:30 pm ET | TVAS — Full TV & streaming info).
