Yeah, St. Louis lost. Chara with no points and a -4, Alfredsson with no points and a -5
Reimer is one of those strange goalies in NHL games - where he's actually a lot better than his overall dictates.

I think poise is one stat that is too heavily influencing the overall. Reimer's poise is always mid 70s. Take poise away, and he's actually a mid-80s goaltender, and is a large reason why the Leafs sim so well in the game.

Lundqvist is probably the best example of the opposite - high poise rating severely inflates his overall. As a result, he doesn't sim nearly as well as some of the 91ish overall goalies (like Price, Miller, etc).
