James Reimer is too humble, even when the times are good, to accept any praise for a victory.

But he will say it comes as a great relief to have posted a couple of wins in a row after the mostly horrible season he's had.

"We love to play, we love to win and it's hard to have fun when you're losing," Reimer said after a workout Sunday on the campus of Boston University. "Winning is fun. We love to go out there and do our best. Winning is usually a reward for that.

"It's been tough getting our reward."
