Lee Nguyen showed why the Revolution built their squad around him for much of the last decade, as he led the way in a 2-1 win over New York City FC at Yankee Stadium Sunday.

Nguyen set up Teal Bunbury’s third-minute goal, then converted an 80th-minute penalty kick as the Revolution (6-4-7, 25 points) moved within a point of fifth-place NYC FC (8-7-2, 26 points) in the Eastern Conference.

The Revolution, who meet the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., Wednesday, snapped a 183-minute scoreless streak. Nguyen, re-acquired by from Los Angeles FC in early September, now has totaled 52 goals and 50 assists for the team.
