Toronto FC vs. D.C. United: 3 takeaways

A nice, quiet match to end a gruelling 32-day stretch that saw Toronto FC play nine times in two different competitions? Nah, the Reds weren't interested in doing that.

Instead, they had a wild affair against D.C. United in a 2-2 draw at Audi Field this weekend, a game that was a far cry from the midweek 0-0 draw away to the Philadelphia Union and a result that left coach John Herdman somewhat disappointed.

"I think last year we might have celebrated our point on the road, but this is a different mindset from this group. They know they dropped two points tonight. That might be crucial in the race. But we picked up a point, and that might be crucial as well. Two away results, and we'll take that at this stage. But disappointed, for sure," Herdman said.

Here are my three major takeaways from Saturday's contest.
