He posted an NHL record of seven wins, five losses and two ties, with two shutouts and a 3.32 goals against average. Reece is most famous for surrendering eleven goals against the Toronto Maple Leafs on February 7, 1976, which included six goals and four assists for Darryl Sittler, setting an NHL-record ten points in one game.
