Kansas City (15-10-6) entered with the best goals-against average in MLS (0.97) and prevented the Crew from attacking through the midfield as Jimmy Nielsen made his only save on Federico Higuain's 30-yard free kick in the 77th minute. Nielsen's 11th shutout moved KC to within two points of Eastern Conference leader New York.
