Just when New York looked set to get its first win at Gillette Stadium since 2002 …

Well, you know what happened. The same thing that always happens when New York travels north to suburban Boston: they leave without a “W.”

The Red Bulls took a late, late lead on Joel Lindpere’s 90th minute header. Reduced to just 10 men following Conor Lade’s ejection, it looked like the most highly unlikely of results.

But a desperate cross in the final seconds found Darrius Barnes, who sent the club’s biggest crowd this year (24,364) home happy with a 1-1 draw.
