Thierry Henry and the Red Bulls were held scoreless in snowy conditions against D.C. United.

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- The Red Bulls didn't include defender Roy Miller in their starting lineup or on their bench after his key error last weekend, and New York tied D.C. United 0-0 Saturday in its home opener.

Bill Hamid made eight saves for D.C. United (1-1-1), including a diving save on Brandon Barklage's shot off a corner kick in stoppage time, which came close to crossing the goal line.

The Red Bulls, in their first season under coach Mike Petke, are 0-1-2 after allowing late goals at Portland and San Jose. Miller's hand ball led to a stoppage-time penalty kick at San Jose, and while Luis Robles saved Chris Wondolowski initial spot kick, Miller was called for encroachment, and Wondolowski scored on his retake.

New York outshot D.C. United 23-4, with Thierry Henry putting five of 10 attempts on goal.
