Date:

The Edmonton Oilers will start Cam Talbot for their Saturday afternoon game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

It will be Talbot's 6th start of the season, and he will try to establish consecutive wins for the first time this season. He is 4-2-0 in 6 career games against the Flyers, posting an impressive 1.34 goals against average and .934 save percentage. Fire him up in every format.
Oct 21 - 12:12 PM

Cam Talbot stopped 30 of 31 shots in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane beat Talbot by banking a shot off him and in the net, but that's the only offense Chicago mustered tonight. The win snaps Talbot's personal three-game losing skid. The Oilers goalie now owns a 2-3-0 record with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season. Expect those numbers to improve dramatically.
Oct 19 - 11:44 PM

Cam Talbot will get the start in Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Talbot won his first game of the season, but he's now dropped three straight games. He has a 1-3-0 record with a 3.96 goals-against-average and a .880 save percentage this season.
Oct 19 - 6:18 PM

Cam Talbot can take comfort in the fact that he's not the only high-profile starting goaltender off to a rough start.

Talbot has a 3.96 GAA and .880 save percentage in four starts this season. While those are disappointing numbers, they're not too dissimilar to what Martin Jones, Frederik Andersen, Devan Dubnyk, Carey Price, Tuukka Rask, and Matt Murray have done thus far. "I noticed that. I’m not the only one," said Talbot. "I’m going through that right now. There’s Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and so many other players going through it right now, too. I don’t know if it’s because the scoring is up or because guys are worried to take stick infraction penalties and stuff like that or what. I don’t know the answer to that. I can only focus what I can do to improve my game and not worry about the other guy. But I do notice it’s kind of a trend in the league right now." Talbot and the vast majority of the other struggling goaltenders on that list should bounce back as the season continues.

Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 23 shots in a 6-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

Zach Smith knocked in a rebound off a Kyle Turris shot and that was the end of Talbot's night just 1:04 into the third period. Talbot has now lost three straight games, seeing his record drop to 1-3-0 with a 3.96 goals against average and a .880 save percentage.
Oct 15 - 1:08 AM

Cam Talbot is the probable starter for Saturday night's game against Ottawa.

Talbot has surrendered eight goals on his last 50 shots faced over two games and needs to rebound. Look for him to do that against a tired Senators' squad who played Friday night in Calgary.
Oct 14 - 12:52 PM

Cam Talbot yielded five goals on 43 shots in Monday's 5-2 setback against the visiting Jets.

Talbot was yanked in Saturday's loss in Vancouver, and he wasn't much better in this outing. He entered 5-1 with a .945 save percentage over his career against the Jets, but Winnipeg beat him early and often, including a hat trick from Nikolaj Ehlers.
Oct 10 - 12:27 AM

Cam Talbot will get the nod against Winnipeg on Monday night.

Talbot has a 5-1 record with a .945 save percentage in his career against the Jets. He won all three meetings versus Winnipeg last year and will be looking to bounce back after he was pulled early Saturday in Vancouver.
Oct 9 - 3:29 PM

Cam Talbot is expected to get the start in goal Monday when the Oilers host the Winnipeg Jets.

Talbot had a rough go of it on Saturday as he gave up three goals on only seven shots before being pulled early in the second period. The Oilers play only once more this week so it makes sense that Talbot and not Laurent Brossoit gets the start. Talbot is 1-1-0 with a 2.22 GAA and a .912 save percentage. It helps that he had a 26 save shutout in the opener against Calgary. Play him with confidence on Monday.
Oct 9 - 6:16 AM

Cam Talbot yielded three goals on seven shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver.

Talbot, who opened the regular season with a shutout win against Calgary, picked up the loss to the Canucks and his record dropped to 1-1-0 with a 2.22 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage. Laurent Brossoit stopped all 19 shots he faced in relief.
Oct 8 - 1:48 AM

Cam Talbot will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Talbot was already regarded as probable for the contest, so this isn't a surprise. He's coming off a 26-save shutout in the Oilers' opener.
Oct 7 - 3:28 PM

Cam Talbot is probable to get the start Saturday night against the Canucks.

Check back for confirmation. Talbot, who was one of the nice stories of last season, shutout the Flames, stopping 26 shots, in the Oilers' season debut Wednesday night. He should be one of the top NHL goalies this season in real life and in fantasy.
Oct 7 - 12:43 PM

Cam Talbot turned aside all 26 shots he faced in Wednesday's 3-0 victory against the visiting Flames.

It was Talbot's 19th career shutout. The Edmonton backstop basically picks up right where he left off last season when he produced career highs with 42 victories and seven shutouts. He has a high-octane offense in front of him, so he'll be one of the elite netminders in fantasy hockey once again.
Oct 5 - 1:03 AM

Cam Talbot will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Calgary Flames.

Talbot is coming off an incredible season that saw him finish with a 42-22-8 record, a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage. He also played a league-high (for goalies) 73 games. Talbot will be a solid fantasy play on a good Edmonton Oilers team.
