Midweek Madness: Last Night's Most Gif-Worthy Moments in MLS Action

I love midweek games. Do you know why I love midweek games? Because it means I don't have to wait until the weekend to watch soccer. I know it's not great on the players. I know that travel arrangements for these things aren't ideal but, that's somebody else's job to worry about, right? We didn't have a ton of goals but we had a couple great ones. We also had some saves, some tricks, and some downright bonkers action.  We're gonna recap it all for you below.

NYCFC: 1  Montreal Impact: 1

New England equalizes on a Jermaine Taylor own goal.  It looked to be a first for the rookie, Femi, but NE are happy with it either way.  It ends all square.
