It's mostly because of Carlyle's defensive system that more of those wild rebounds are not ending up in the back of the net. It has by far been the biggest improvement from last season.

The D has done a great job of limiting the second and third chances, and vastly cutting down on odd man rushes/breakaways.

Reimer has a lot of things to work on in the offseason. He needs to learn how to play the puck, at least to a peewee level. Freezing the puck every fn chance he got because he had no clue what to do with it was very detrimental. Especially when we were getting dominated on faceoffs.

And yeah, his rebound control has been nearly non-existant.
