Talbot gave up four goals on just 14 shots and was replaced by Jonas Gustavsson prior to the third period in Tuesday's loss to Toronto.

Just when Talbot looked to be in a distinct warming phase, having put up a 1.78 GAA and .942 save mark in his last five outings, along came this clunker to rob him of all his momentum. He's now given up four-plus goals in six of his 22 starts, but he's allowed one or zero goals six times as well, so Talbot's been something of a hit-or-miss fantasy proposition. It's been a season of streaks for the 29-year-old netminder, who's now lost three straight starts.
