Sunday's match one for the record books

In case you somehow forgot, Philadelphia Union overcame not one but two two-goal deficits against New York Red Bulls in the first round of the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs to win in extra time by a 4-3 scoreline.

While the match was historic for the Boys in Blue as the club's first playoff victory, the seven combined goals was one of the highest-scoring games in Major League Soccer's playoffs.

The Union and Red Bulls seven goals were the seventh occurrence of that many goals in a single Audi MLS Cup Playoff match (the second in the first round) and trailed the all-time record of eight. That match occurred back in 1998 when Columbus Crew defeated New York by a 5-3 margin.
