Do you find it weird that he's more likely to win when he lets in less goals?

Reimer's record (sorted by goals against) - Min. 40 mins played

0 goals against: 4-0-0
1 goals against: 3-1-0
2 goals against: 6-0-2
3 goals against: 3-0-0
4 goals against: 2-2-6
5 goals against: 0-1-0

Seems the only time we're in trouble is when he lets in 4 goals or more, which makes complete sense for any team and any goaltender.

Pretty interesting that in over half of these games (19 of 33), he allowed 2 or less.
