Wild's Cam Talbot: Falls short in Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot gave up five goals on 34 shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 7. The sixth goal was an empty-netter

After a back-and-forth start in the first period, the Golden Knights overwhelmed Talbot and the Wild over the last 40 minutes. The 33-year-old goalie had two shutouts in the seven-game series, but he still gave up 17 goals on 223 shots for a .924 save percentage. He's got two more years on his contract, so Talbot will likely enter 2021-22 as the Wild's No. 1 goalie.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot is slated to start between the pipes in Friday's Game 7 versus Vegas, NHL.com's Nicholas J. Cotsonika reports.

Talbot was excellent in Games 5 and 6, picking up back-to-back wins, one by way of a shutout, while posting a superb 1.00 GAA and .968 save percentage. The 33-year-old netminder will attempt to secure a third straight victory and help the Wild advance to the second round Friday against the Golden Knights.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Forces Game 7 with shutout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot produced a 23-save shutout in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Talbot didn't yield an inch to the Golden Knights in Wednesday's contest. The 33-year-old helped the Wild avoid elimination for a second straight game, and this win forced a Game 7 to be played Friday. Two of Talbot's three playoff wins have been shutouts, and he'll likely get the nod again Friday as the Wild's unquestioned No. 1 option in goal.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Gets starting nod Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will be between the pipes for Wednesday's must-win Game 6 at home against the Golden Knights, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Talbot will look to keep the Wild's season alive for the second straight game, as he was brilliant in Game 5, stopping 38 of 40 shots in the 4-2 win. The 33-year-old has done everything he could to keep his team in the series, as he's gone 2-3-0 along with a 2.41 GAA and .928 save percentage across five games. The Wild will continue to lean on him as he looks to fight off elimination and force Game 7.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Keeps season alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot stopped 38 of 40 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights in Game 5.

Talbot ended his three-game winning streak and got some help from his teammates in the form of a three-goal first period. The 33-year-old still faced heavy traffic Monday, but he was up to the challenge. With the win, the Wild trail the Golden Knights 3-2 in their first-round series, which continues Wednesday in Minnesota. Talbot will likely once again get the starting nod.

Wild's Cam Talbot: In net Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will be stationed between the pipes for Game 5 in Vegas on Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

After an outstanding 42-save shutout in Game 1, Talbot has been hit with three straight losses, giving up 10 goals on 84 shots during that span. The Wild will continue to lean on him as he looks to fight off elimination and force Game 6. He owns a .921 save percentage in four postseason games.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Struggles again in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot gave up three goals on 17 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 4. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

Talbot can't really be blamed for either of the Golden Knights' two tallies in the second period, which both came as a result of the Wild's defensive breakdowns. Despite the decrease in shots again, Talbot took a third straight loss. The 33-year-old netminder is still likely to start Monday's Game 5 in Vegas with the Wild's season on the line.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Slated to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot is on track to start between the pipes at home in Saturday's Game 4 versus Vegas, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

Talbot hasn't been great in back-to-back games against the Golden Knights, suffering two straight losses while posting a sub-par 3.57 GAA and .896 save percentage. He'll try to get back on track and help the Wild even the series at two games apiece Saturday.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Leaks four goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot gave up four goals on 39 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

The 33-year-old goalie was spotted a 2-0 lead after one period, but the Golden Knights charged back over the final 40 minutes. Talbot had a 42-save shutout in Game 1, but he's now allowed seven goals on 67 shots in back-to-back losses. The Wild will likely ride with Talbot again in Saturday's Game 4.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will guard the home cage during Thursday's Game 3 versus Vegas, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

Talbot wasn't great in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Golden Knights, surrendering three goals on 28 shots en route to a 3-1 defeat. The 33-year-old netminder will attempt to bounce back and help the Wild take a 2-1 series lead over Vegas on Thursday.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Repeat performance not in cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot allowed three goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 2.

Talbot looked good in the first half of Tuesday's game, but the Golden Knights' offense finally sparked to life midway through the second period. The 33-year-old goalie has only gotten a single goal of support in each of the first two playoff games. He's performed admirably with 67 saves on 70 shots, but he'll need more support as the Wild return home for Thursday's Game 3 with the first-round series tied at 1-1.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Draws Game 2 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will protect the road goal in Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Fresh off a 42-save shutout in Sunday's 1-0 Game 1 win, Talbot will return to the crease looking to double the Wild's series lead. He should be expected to face a high shot volume again Tuesday, but he'll need to be at his best to pick up another win.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Perfect in playoff opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot racked up 42 saves in a 1-0 overtime victory over Vegas in Game 1 on Sunday.

Talbot went head-to-head in a terrific goaltending duel with Vegas' Marc-Andre Fleury, stopping 37 shots at even strength, six while shorthanded and one more while Minnesota was on the power play. Talbot scuffled down the stretch to close out the regular season, allowing 24 goals over his final six starts, but he was absolutely dialed in for the playoff opener. He'll be back between the pipes for Game 2 on Tuesday.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting Game 1 in Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will defend the road cage in Sunday's Game 1 against the Golden Knights, Sarah McLellan of Star Tribune Sports reports.

Talbot's coming off a successful first regular season with the Wild, in which he went 19-8-3 with a 2.63 GAA and .915 save percentage, matching the 2.63 GAA he posted with the Flames last season. The 34-year-old netminder has 25 games of postseason experience under his belt, including 23 starts. He'll need to be at the top of his game to give Minnesota a chance against a Vegas team that outscored opponents 3.39 to 2.18 on average in the regular season.

Wild's Cam Talbot: On wrong end of shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot stopped 23 of 27 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Blues.

Talbot didn't get any help from his Wild teammates Wednesday. The 33-year-old goalie dropped to 19-8-5 with a 2.63 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 33 appearances. With the Wild locked into the No. 3 seed in the West Division, they won't have anything to play for in Thursday's rematch with the Blues. That makes it unlikely Talbot will start in the regular-season finale.

Wild's Cam Talbot: In goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will get the starting nod on the road against the Blues on Wednesday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Talbot has struggled of late, as he is 2-1-2 with a 3.92 GAA in his last five appearances. The veteran netminder will take the first game of the back-to-back, as the Wild still have an outside chance of securing second place in the West Division. Kaapo Kahkonen figures to take the second game versus St. Louis on Thursday unless coach Dean Evason decides to rest a number of players.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Earns OT victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot stopped 19 of 22 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks on Saturday.

Talbot had a 3-1 lead go by the wayside in the third period. Anaheim's Trevor Zegras made it a one-goal lead 2:18 into the frame and Maxime Comtois knotted the game with an extra attacker on the ice for the Ducks. However, Minnesota's Victor Rask potted the OT winner to deliver Talbot his 19th win of the season. Talbot hasn't been particularly effective down the stretch, allowing 20 goals over his last five starts.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Talbot was solid in his last start Wednesday versus Vegas, stopping 31 of 34 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 12th loss of the season due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. He'll attempt to get back in the win column in a home matchup with an Anaheim team that's 11-12-3 on the road this year.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Drops OT decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot stopped 31 of 34 shots Wednesday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas.

Alex Pietrangelo's one-timer less than two minutes into overtime was the decisive tally in this one. In fact, all three Vegas goals came on one-timers on which Talbot had little to no chance of stopping. The veteran netminder has just one win in his last four starts (1-1-2), with all four of those being decided by one goal. He'll try to get back on track with a pair of games later this week in Anaheim.

Wild's Cam Talbot: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talbot will start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game versus Vegas, source reports.

Talbot wasn't great in his last start Monday against the Golden Knights, surrendering five goals on 32 shots, but he was still able to pick up his 18th win of the season thanks to fantastic goal support from his teammates. The 33-year-old goaltender will attempt to secure a second straight victory in a rematch with the same Vegas squad Wednesday.
