The Dons moved into second place in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday when Reynolds headed home an 82nd-minute corner to secure a 1-0 victory at Kilmarnock.
The victory was the fifth time this season that Aberdeen have won a game with goals in the final 10 minutes.
Reynolds told RedTV: "I think that's the big difference between now and last season. Last season that would maybe have ended 0-0.
"If you want to keep pace with the teams at the top, you need to keep picking up three points.
"All we are interested in is getting three points. It's massive to do that, especially at Rugby Park. It's a notoriously tough venue and teams have been dropping points there.
"To get three points is great and it keeps us on a good run and kicks us on to Hibs on Friday night."
