Wild's Cam Talbot: Can't extend season
Talbot allowed four goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Blues in Game 6. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Talbot's playoff debut was ultimately the Wild's last game, as they couldn't keep pace with the Blues. The deficit was 4-0 after two periods, leaving the 34-year-old on the hook for the season-ending loss. He had a solid 32-12-4 record with a 2.76 GAA and a .911 save percentage in 49 regular-season outings. Talbot is under contract for one more year, so he could go into 2022-23 as the Wild's presumptive starter in net.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: First goalie off Thursday
Talbot was the first goalie to exit the ice at Thursday's game-day skate, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports, indicating he'll get the starting nod on the road versus St. Louis for Game 6.
Talbot will make his first start this postseason, having last gotten into the crease April 28 versus the Flames. The Ontario native is still riding a 17-game stretch in which he was undefeated in regulation, going 13-0-3 with a 2.35 GAA. Even with Talbot getting the nod over Marc-Andre Fleury, neither netminder should be considered a lock to start the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Sharp in overtime victory
Talbot stopped 31 of 33 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Calgary.
After sitting in the Wild's last three games, Talbot played well against a potent Calgary offense. The 34-year-old netminder has now gone 17 straight starts without a regulation loss. His record improves to 32-12-4 on the season with a .911 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Gets starting nod versus Flames
Talbot will be between the pipes for Thursday's home matchup against Calgary, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Talbot has had to watch from the bench for the Wild's last three contests despite having not lost in regulation in 16 straight contests in which he posted a 12-0-3 record. While the 34-year-old netminder may have to watch Marc-Andre Fleury start Game 1 of the postseason, coach Dean Evason will likely be quick to give Talbot a look if needed.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Stops 21 in victory
Talbot made 21 saves on 24 shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over Vancouver.
It wasn't Talbot's sharpest game, as he allowed three goals on only 24 shots, but he earned the win thanks to a three-goal third period from the Wild. The 34-year-old goaltender now has wins in consecutive starts while splitting time with Marc-Andre Fleury. Talbot's record improved to 31-12-4 on the season with a .911 save percentage. It'll likely be Fleury in net Friday when the Wild close out a back-to-back against visiting Seattle.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Gets starting nod against Canucks
Talbot will be between the pipes for Thursday's home clash with Vancouver, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.
Talbot will make consecutive starts for the first time since Marc-Andre Fleury was acquired at the deadline, which shouldn't be a complete surprise considering the 34-year-old Talbot is coming off a 26-save shutout performance versus the Habs on Tuesday. At this point, it remains unclear who might start Game 1 of the postseason, and it's possible the coaching staff hasn't decided either.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: No regulation losses in last 14
Talbot stopped all 26 shots he faced in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Montreal.
The Wild chose wisely in deploying Talbot over Marc-Andre Fleury when facing the team against which Fleury choked last postseason. With no such baggage to worry about, Talbot shut out a Canadiens team with the worst record in the Eastern Conference, improving to 11-0-3 in his last 14 decisions. If the postseason started tomorrow, Talbot has earned the Game 1 start for the Wild. Whether that will remain the case by early May remains to be seen.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting in Montreal
Talbot will guard the road goal during Tuesday's matchup with the Canadiens, Anthony LaPanta of Fox Sports North reports.
Talbot struggled in his last start Saturday against St. Louis, surrendering six goals on 30 shots en route to a 6-5 overtime defeat. He'll try to shake off that poor performance and return to the win column in a favorable road matchup with a Montreal team that's 10-23-4 at home this year.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Blues like kryptonite
Talbot made 24 saves in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Blues on Saturday.
It wasn't his best outing, but he still gave the Wild a chance to win as they roared back from a 4-1 deficit heading into the third. And Talbot didn't really have a chance on the winner. Pavel Buchnevich wrapped around the net and instead of trying to stuff the puck in as Talbot went post-to-post, the winger fed Brayden Schenn in the high slot for the winner. St. Louis has been Talbot's kryptonite of late -- he also lost in OT a week ago Friday in the city, and he allowed 10 goals in those two losses. After a seven-game win streak in March, Talbot has gone 2-0-3 and is splitting time in the blue paint with Marc-Andre Fleury, who is 3-1-0 this month.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Between pipes Saturday
Talbot will tend the twine on the road versus the Blues on Saturday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Talbot will get the first game of the Wild's back-to-back, which likely means Marc-Andre Fleury will protect the crease versus San Jose on Sunday. For his part, the 34-year-old Talbot is undefeated in regulation in 13 straight contests, during which he is 10-0-2 with a 2.33 GAA. At this point, the Wild should be expected to continue alternating between Talbot and Fleury, though who gets the nod for Game 1 of the playoffs likely remains up in the air.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Extends unbeaten stretch
Talbot made 27 saves in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.
The shots were 19-19 after two periods, but while Talbot stopped every one he faced up to that point, Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen let four pucks through. Minnesota extended its lead to 5-0 early in the third before Leon Draisaitl broke up Talbot's shutout bid on an Edmonton power play with his 51st goal of the season. There's no shame in giving one up to Draisaitl, and Talbot improved to 10-0-2 in his last 12 decisions with this latest strong performance. He has been the better option in Minnesota's net over Marc-Andre Fleury, who has allowed eight goals in his last two starts.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting against Edmonton
Talbot will defend the blue paint during Tuesday's home game versus the Oilers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Talbot wasn't great in his last start Friday against St. Louis, surrendering four goals on 28 shots en route to a 4-3 defeat. He'll try to shake off that poor performance and return to the win column in a home matchup with a hot Edmonton team that's won six of its last seven contests.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Slips up in overtime loss
Talbot allowed four goals on 28 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues.
The Wild took a 3-1 lead early in the third period, but Talbot couldn't make it stick. The 34-year-old has had some mixed results since he started sharing the crease with Marc-Andre Fleury -- Talbot is 3-0-2 with 13 goals allowed across his last five starts. He's at 28-12-3 with a 2.81 GAA and a .911 save percentage in 44 appearances overall. Talbot will likely serve as backup Sunday versus the Kings, as head coach Dean Evason has strictly alternated his goalies over the last two weeks.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Guarding crease Friday
Talbot is expected to get the starting nod Friday in St. Louis, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Talbot is 9-1-1 over his last 12 outings with a 2.35 GAA during that span. Since the Wild acquired Marc-Andre Fleury, the two netminders have alternated starts and it seems like that trend will continue at least during the regular season. Talbot is sporting a .912 save percentage with a 28-12-2 record this season. He lost to the Blues on Jan. 1, coughing up six goals on 28 shots.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Back in win column Sunday
Talbot stopped 25 of 26 shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Capitals.
Talbot saw his seven-game winning streak end Thursday in an overtime loss to the Penguins, but his performance Sunday assured he wouldn't enter a skid. The Wild had all the offense they needed within the first two minutes of the game. Talbot is up to 28-12-2 with a 2.78 GAA and a .912 save percentage through 43 appearances. He'll likely continue to split starts with Marc-Andre Fleury for the remainder of the season.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting in Washington
Talbot will start between the pipes in Sunday's road game versus the Capitals, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Talbot wasn't great in his last start Thursday versus the Penguins, surrendering four goals on 39 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime loss. He'll try to get back in the win column in a road matchup with a Washington team that's 16-14-5 at home this year.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Falls to Pens in OT
Talbot allowed four goals on 39 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.
After letting in three goals in the first 30 minutes of game action, Talbot managed to hold the Penguins off the board for the remainder of regulation, allowing Minnesota to erase a two-goal deficit to force overtime. He couldn't keep it going in the extra session, as Evgeni Malkin won it for the visitors. This was only the second game Talbot has dropped beyond regulation, and he's added 27 wins and 12 regulation losses.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Cam Talbot: Between pipes versus Pens
Talbot will tend the twine for Thursday's home clash with Pittsburgh, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.
It's a bit of a surprise that the Wild aren't going to give Marc-Andre Fleury the nod against his former club, though he has been gone from Pittsburgh for three years now. While Fleury will likely see the bulk of the workload heading into the playoffs, Talbot should still get plenty of opportunities, especially considering he is riding an eight-game winning streak during which he's posted a 2.13 GAA and one shutout....

Wild's Cam Talbot: Picks up overtime win
Talbot stopped 26 of 28 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks.
Talbot performed solidly in this contest, earning his sixth straight win. The 34-year-old improved to 26-12-1 with a 2.82 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 40 appearances. Head coach Dean Evason said Talbot will make his next start Sunday versus the Avalanche, one day after Marc-Andre Fleury's Wild debut against the Blue Jackets, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports....

Wild's Cam Talbot: Gets starting nod Thursday
Talbot will be between the pipes at home versus Vancouver on Thursday, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.
Talbot is riding a six-game winning streak during which he posted a 2.17 GAA and .917 save percentage. Despite the 34-year-old netminder's recent run of form, the team still acquired Marc-Andre Fleury at the deadline, which will almost certainly limit Talbot's opportunities to play.... See More ...
