Toronto FC vs. New York City FC: 3 takeaways

Toronto FC rode a tidal wave of momentum into Saturday's road game against New York City after a strong start to the MLS campaign that saw it collect seven points from its first three games.

But TFC ended up being cut down to size in suffering a 2-1 loss, a result that served as a bit of a wakeup call. It marked the first time this season that the Reds lost and conceded a goal as their shutout streak was halted at 310 minutes.

Notably, Toronto was dealing with a rash of injuries and had the man advantage for the final 22 minutes on the infamously narrow pitch at Yankee Stadium.

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