Cam Talbot allowed five goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets.
Talbot wasn't necessarily the problem in this one, but he didn't do anything to stand out, outside his one big save on Mark Scheifele on the penalty kill. Talbot has seen less and less starts with Mikko Koskinen playing so well, and that is something that is very likely to continue moving forward. Talbot's record falls to 7-9-2 with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage. Dec 13 - 10:59 PM

Cam Talbot is expected to start on Thursday.

Talbot earned back-to-back wins on Dec. 5 and Dec. 7, so we'll see if he can build off that. He's 7-9-1 with a 3.12 GAA and .895 save percentage in 17 contests this season.
Dec 13 - 1:17 PM

Cam Talbot allowed just two goals on 33 shots in Friday's 7-2 victory against the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Talbot has picked up wins in consecutive starts after suffering setbacks in his previous six outings. The improvement is much needed, as Mikko Koskinen looked to be locking up the No. 1 job with a hot stretch in November. It appears the two will be splitting the duties right now. It also helps when the offense rolls up big numbers of support, too. The Oilers are back in action Sunday against the provincial rival Flames.
Dec 8 - 3:34 AM

Cam Talbot will start Friday night's game against Minnesota.

Talbot has struggled mightily this season, but he was in goal for a 3-2 shootout win over St. Louis on Wednesday. He's getting a chance to build off that, but the Oilers are expected to go back to Mikko Koskinen on Sunday.
Dec 7 - 1:47 PM

Cam Talbot turned aside 28 of 30 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Oilers were down 2-0 in the first period, but they managed to force a shootout thanks to goals by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Oscar Klefbom (final minute of regulation). Nugent-Hopkins and Connor McDavid added goals in the shootout to give the Oilers the win. The victory put an end to Talbot's personal six-game losing streak. He now has a 6-9-1 record with a 3.19 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage this season.
Dec 5 - 11:15 PM

Cam Talbot will get the call on Wednesday against St. Louis.

Talbot hasn't played much behind Mikko Koskinen of late. He hasn't won a game since Oct. 28 and has six losses in his last six starts. Talbot owns a 5-9-1 record this season with a 3.29 goals-against average and .889 save percentage.
Dec 4 - 5:26 PM

Cam Talbot allowed three goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Talbot is caught in the worst cold streak of his career. The veteran netminder has now lost six straight games in goal, allowing a combined 23 goals during that span. The 31-year-old netminder could use a few games off in order to try and get his game in order. His record falls to 5-9-1 with a 3.29 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage.
Nov 26 - 1:22 AM

Cam Talbot will get the start in goal Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Talbot has sat on the bench for five of the Oilers last six games and gave up six goals on 31 shots in his only start during that stretch. He will get another chance Sunday as the Oilers take on the lowly Kings. Talbot is 5-8-1 with a 3.31 GAA and a .888 save percentage. He has been an albatross for his fantasy owners to date but will look to turn things around Sunday.
Nov 25 - 6:18 AM

Cam Talbot allowed six goals on 31 shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Oilers had a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but the Golden Knights scored the next five goals. Despite Connor McDavid's best efforts, Edmonton is off to another mediocre start this year. The fact that the Oilers are bad means that Talbot's fantasy value will take a hit. The 31-year-old has a 5-8-1 record with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .888 save percentage this season. He's more of a number two goalie in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:11 PM

Cam Talbot will get back between the pipes on Sunday against Vegas.

Talbot has picked up losses in each of his last four starts and he was pulled last Sunday in a defeat versus Colorado. He has a 5-7-1 record this year with a 3.09 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.
Nov 17 - 1:27 PM

Cam Talbot was pulled from Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche after giving up three goals on 14 shots.

Talbot was beat just 26 seconds into the game by Mikko Rantanen and then again with just under five minutes left in the first period. Alex Kerfoot's goal 5:06 into the second period was all she wrote for Edmonton's starter. Talbot has now lost four straight games, dropping his record to 5-7-1 with a 3.09 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage. Don't look now but Mikko Koskinen is starting to see a clear path to the starter's net.
Nov 12 - 12:00 AM

Cam Talbot will start Sunday night against Colorado.

Edmonton has been hot of late, while the Avalanche have struggled, but Talbot has dropped each of his last three outings and he has allowed 11 goals during that span. He has a 5-6-1 record this year with a 2.94 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 1:11 PM

Look for Cam Talbot to get the start in net for Edmonton Sunday.

The Oilers take on Colorado who have one of the top lines in the NHL, if not the top line, in Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. Talbot will try to halt his three game losing streak as he is 5-6-1 with a 2.94 GAA and a .899 save percentage. It's tough to recommend Talbot at this time so perhaps look elsewhere, especially in DFS.
Nov 11 - 7:09 AM

Cam Talbot allowed three goals on 32 shots in Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

The Oilers were able to get within one just 23 seconds into the third period but a bad goal where Talbot went down early about three minutes later killed all momentum gained for Edmonton. This will mark the 31-year-old’s third straight loss, dropping his record to 5-6-1 with a 2.94 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage.
Nov 8 - 9:54 PM

Cam Talbot is expected to start on Thursday.

Talbot will be looking for his first win since Oct. 28. He has a 5-5-1 record, 2.93 GAA, and .899 save percentage in 11 games this season.
