Cam Talbot stopped 28 of 30 shots in a 2-1 loss to Anaheim in Game 7 Wednesday night.
While that has to be a disappointing loss for the Oilers at the moment, it does bring a very promising campaign to its conclusion. Edmonton finished the 2015-16 campaign with just 70 points and hadn't made the playoffs since 2006, so the fact that the Oilers not only made it to the postseason, but battled to Game 7 of the second round is a big leap forward. Talbot deserves a lot of credit for Edmonton's improvement this season. He was a workhorse during the 2016-17 campaign and while he wasn't the league's top goaltender in the playoffs by any stretch of the imagination, he did steal some games for Edmonton during the postseason. The Oilers are a promising team going into the 2017-18 campaign. May 11 - 12:51 AM

Cam Talbot and the Oilers rebounded in a truly remarkable way on Sunday night in a 7-1 win over Anaheim to force a Game 7.

Talbot made 34 saves on 35 shots to do his part, but the offense took control of the Oilers' first elimination game of 2017 and booked their ticket to Anaheim for the deciding game on Wednesday. Talbot has been great at times in this series, and has a 7-5 record this post-season with a 2.51 goals against average and .924 save percentage.
May 7 - 10:33 PM

Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 64 shots in Friday's 4-3 double overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks couldn't solve Talbot in the first 56 minutes of the game. Edmonton was up 3-0 with under four minutes remaining in regulation, when Anaheim got three goals from Ryan Getzlaf, Cam Fowler and Rickard Rakell to force overtime. In the second overtime period, it was Corey Perry that gave the Ducks the win. It's a difficult result for Talbot, who did everything he could for his team tonight. The Oilers are now heading back home down 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. A loss on Sunday night would eliminate them from the playoffs. Talbot has a 6-5 record with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage this postseason. It'll be very interesting to see how the Oilers respond after such a monumental collapse.

Cam Talbot was spectacular in Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Talbot was clearly the best Oiler on the ice tonight, as he turned aside 39 of 40 shots in the victory. The only goal he allowed came while his team was shorthanded (Jakob Silfverberg beat him with a perfect wrist shot). With the Ducks continuously buzzing in the third period, Talbot was able to come up with huge saves to keep his team ahead (he was also bailed out by the post on two occasions in the final period). Talbot owns a 6-2 record with a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .934 save percentage. It's the fourth time in eight games that Talbot has given up one goal or less in an outing.

Cam Talbot stopped 33 of 36 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

But that's when the Ducks woke up. Anaheim got two quick goals of their own from Patrick Eaves and Jakob Silfverberg to tie it up at three. Thankfully for Edmonton, Larsson scored his second of the game to with less than five minutes remaining in regulation before Leon Draisaitl added an empty-netter.

Apr 23 - 1:43 AM

It should come as no surprise that Cam Talbot will probably start in Game 6 Saturday against San Jose.

This will be a big test for the Oilers as they will be going into the Shark Tank in San Jose with the Sharks on the ropes and desperate for a win to keep their season alive. If Edmonton is to close out the Sharks, Talbot will have to be at his very best.
