Lee was removed in stoppage time to a rousing ovation from fans and other players.
REVOLUTION 1, CREW 0
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Juan Agudelo scored midway through the first half to help New England qualify for the postseason for the first time since 2009.
The Revolution (14-11-9) needed to win their regular-season finale because Houston defeated D.C. United earlier in the day to also reach 51 points. New England moved from sixth in the Eastern Conference, one spot out of the playoffs, to third because it owns the tiebreaker against Houston.
New England finished the season with a 4-0-2 stretch and will take on Sporting Kansas City in the first round of the playoffs next weekend.
Agudelo completed a crafty give-and-go with Lee Nguyen on the right side of the box and put away his ninth goal from 12 yards in the 28th minute.
The Crew (12-17-5) dropped their second straight game.
DYNAMO 2, UNITED 1
WASHINGTON (AP) — Boniek Garcia and Giles Barnes scored in the first half, and Houston beat D.C. United 2-1 to wrap up a playoff spot for the third straight season.
The Dynamo (14-11-9) are the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and will host Montreal in the knockout match on Wednesday or Thursday.
D.C. United (3-24-7) was winless in its final 12 games and set the MLS record for fewest victories in a season, breaking the previous mark of four set by Tampa Bay in 2001 and matched by Chivas USA in 2005.
Garcia scored his third goal of the season, converting a penalty kick in the 11th minute.
United tied it in the 27th minute when Kyle Porter headed home Chris Pontius' cross at the far post right. It was Porter's third goal of the season, tying him for the team high.
Houston pulled ahead in the 39th minute when Barnes flicked home a header on a corner kick. Barnes finished the season with a team-high nine goals.
