In his first two games as an Edmonton Oilers goalie, Cam Talbot was outstanding. In his first five games, he had a .920 save percentage (127/138) but since that time he is .867 (156/180). These are small samples and a two-week run of ugly doesn't make a season. The key for Talbot? Make an impression when the next opportunity arrives. Next stop: Detroit.
