HARRISON, N.J. — Not only do the Red Bulls have a a mini-winning streak, but for the second consecutive game they also showed they can actually fill the net.
Tom Barlow struck twice in the opening half to spoil Montreal Impact head coach Thierry Henry’s return to Red Bull Arena with a 4-1 triumph Sunday night.
Daniel Royer and Kaku broke open a close game in the second half by scoring within a minute of each other.
New York defeated host Inter Miami CF Wednesday night, 4-1.
After scoring only nine goals in their first 12 games, the Red Bulls have erupted for eight over the past two games spanning five nights.

After Bojan lifted Montreal into a fourth-minute lead, Barlow grabbed the spot.
He netted his first goal of the season after a cross from Mandela Egbo in the 14th minute to equalize.
In the 35th minute, Royer set up Barlow with a back-heel pass to take a 2-1 edge.
Royer tallied in the 56th minute before Kaku found the net a minute later to take a three-goal advantage. It was Royer’s 50th goal as a Red Bull across all competitions.
