Thierry Henry scored his league-leading ninth goal in the seventh minute, then went down with what appeared to be a serious hamstring injury 15 minutes later, leading the New York Red Bulls to a 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday.
The Red Bulls (4-3-1) remained unbeaten at home (3-0-1) and temporarily move past D.C. United for second place in the MLS Eastern Conference standings.
Rookie goalkeeper Ryan Meara made five saves in recording his first MLS shutout, including a diving stop on Lee Nguyen's blast in added time to preserve the shutout.
New England (2-5) was shut out for the fourth time in seven matches and has scored only five goals all season.
Henry made a brilliant move to score. He took a throw-in from rookie Connor Lade and maneuvered past Revolution defender Stephen McCarthy to get to the ball. Henry then flicked a right-footed shot over New England goalkeeper Matt Reis, who came far out of the box to try to stop Henry.
