COMMERCE CITY CO (ColoradoRapids.com) - Fresh off their 1-0 victory over the Western Conference-leading Houston Dynamo on Saturday night your Colorado Rapids will look to outplay another conference leader when they host the leaders of the Eastern Conference the New England Revolution this Thursday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Kickoff is at 7:00pm MT (*note: the game will kick off at 7 p.m. instead of the previously-announced 8 p.m. due to ESPN2 dropping the game broadcast in favor of the LA Galaxy at Toronto FC match).
