The Minnesota Wild fended off the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday, beating them 5-1. He saved 27 of 28 shots that came down ranged for a .964 save percentage.
It took Edmonton and Leon Draisaitl 5:39 into the third period to register a goal on Talbot and they needed to be on the man advantage to do so. It was a solid performance by the netminder after Fluery was the preferred option in the previous game. He also didn't look so hot in his previous start so this is encouraging. Unless he starts going on a roll, look for him to be in a 50/50 timeshare down the stretch.
