Kelyn Rowe also scored for New England, 7-1-1 in its last nine matches and 15-13-4 overall. Marco Di Vaio scored twice for Montreal (6-18-8).

Nguyen tied it on a chip shot from the edge of the area that appeared to go off defender Calum Mallace's foot and drop behind goalkeeper Evan Bush. Nguyen has 15 goals this season.
