Kings' Cam Talbot: Ties unlikely NHL record
Talbot made 24 saves in a 4-0 win over Montreal on Thursday.
When you're a fit, you're a fit. Talbot's style is the perfect fit in the Kings' system, and the 36-year-old has delivered a 12-4-1 record this season, along with a 1.84 GAA and .933 save percentage. Talbot's road record is a sparkling 9-0-0 this year, and that ties the NHL record for the longest season-opening road win streak by a netminder. He's now in the record books alongside the great Glenn Hall of Chicago, who went 9-0-0 on the road to start the 1965-66 season.... See More ... See Less

The 36-year-old is up to a strong 11-4-1 record with a stellar 1.96 GAA and a .930 save percentage through 16 games. He's taken the No. 1 job and run with it, though he'll look to take the show on the road as the Kings play all four of their games over the next week in the Eastern time zone.... See More ...

He's now at a 7-3-1 record with a 2.21 GAA and a .923 save percentage over 11 appearances. He'll have plenty of time to shake this one off, as the Kings don't play again until Thursday versus the Panthers. However, it's unclear if Talbot will get the nod for that game.... See More ...

Talbot is now at 7-2-1 with a 2.03 GAA and a .930 save percentage through 10 outings. After a slow start, he's been dialed in as the Kings' starter. While head coach Todd McLellan has kept the winning netminder between the pipes more often than not so far, Talbot's heavy workload Wednesday may earn him a night off Thursday versus the Penguins....

It was Talbot's 29th shutout in the NHL and first with the Kings. He has won three straight games and is a remarkable 6-2-1 with a 2.14 GAA and .923 save percentage in nine games this season. The Kings' system fits the 36-year-old netminder to a T. They play strong team defense and protect their netminder, which means Talbot won't have to make big, acrobatic saves too often. He can just settle in the net and that's a great fit with his calm demeanor. Talbot has been a great fantasy value so far, and as long as he remains healthy, he's going to deliver you strong numbers.... See More ... See Less
