After scoring back-to-back shutouts in games two and three of the first round of the playoffs, Cam Talbot got the hook 13 minutes into the second period when he gave up five goals in a 7-0 loss to the Sharks.

Nothing went right for the Oilers Tuesday night. Certainly Talbot does not bear sole responsibility for the loss because he had no appreciable defensive help. The again, he was the goalie who allowed five shots to get past. This embarrassing defeat will galvanize Edmonton as they head home for game five. Laurent Brossoit gave up another two goals on only eight shots.

Cam Talbot was sensational on Wednesday as he stopped 41 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose.

The Oilers gave him a 2-0 lead at the end of the first, but they failed to provide additional offensive support. Talbot simply could not withstand the barrage from San Jose for the remainder of the game, facing 10 shots in each of the first and second periods while seeing 18 shots in the third as the Sharks tied the score. The San Jose barrage continued into the first overtime as he made five saves before Melker Karlsson beat him on the sixth shot, only 3:22 into the extra frame. Talbot will need to be great again if the Oilers want to send the series back to San Jose tied at 1 and they continue to struggle up front.
