Cam Talbot got some much needed time off on Saturday.
The Oilers netminder gave up four goals in each of his last two games and was pulled in both efforts as he faced only 33 shots in total. Talbot has played in 67 games this season so a break from the action could only do him some good. Laurent Brossoit played well enough Saturday giving up only one goal to the Avs so the backup could get another start Tuesday against the Kings. Talbot is 37-21-8 with a 2.40 GAA and a .920 save percentage and has been a major factor in the Oilers rise to the playoffs this season. Mar 26 - 8:55 AM

That capped off a four-game winning streak for the netminder. The decision to pull Talbot came after Rickard Rakell’s goal at the 11:23 mark of the second.
