EDIT: Clarification added to "437 Minutes" to state "at Rio Tinto".
That was NY's first shot in 437 minutes.— Mark Fishkin (@MarkFishkin) July 31, 2014
When Thierry Henry took a shot in the 54th minute, it was the first time in 437 minutes that the Red Bulls actually recorded an official shot at Rio Tinto. That's 4.85 games without an official shot. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait another 437 minutes for the next one.
3 minutes after his first shot of the night, Henry took one from outside the box, and placed it right at the post, putting it past Nick Rimando. Not only did it tie the game at 1, but, according to OptaFish, it broken another long streak.
Henry's goal was #RBNY's first goal in Salt Lake since the 2008 Western Conference Final.— Mark Fishkin (@MarkFishkin) July 31, 2014
Lack of Subs
Again, why does Petke refuse to use his subs? He didn't use his first until the 79th minute (Ruben Bover for Eric Alexander), but by that point the Red Bulls were already dealing with pressure. His second was in the 90th minute (Peguy Luyindula for Henry) because of an injury. Why not put on some fresh bodies to help absorb the Real Salt Lake pressure?
