Talbot allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Flames loss to the Stars on Wednesday. Talbot has lost each of his last three starts while allowing 10 goals on 92 shots (.891 SV%). The Golden Knights have lost five consecutive game but they are typically very good at home, making Talbot an option for only the most desperate fantasy owners.

Talbot will start Tuesday vs. the Capitals.

Talbot allowed one goal on 30 shots in the Flames win in Anaheim on Sunday. With David Rittich getting yanked on Saturday, the Talbot will stick with the hot-hand tonight vs. Washington. Talbot has stopped 54 of 58 shots (.931 SV%) to start his Flames career but draws a tough assignment vs. a Capitals team that is averaging 3.60 goals per game (6th in the NHL) in 2019-20.

Talbot will make his season debut in San Jose on Sunday.

David Rittich has started the first five games of the season but Talbot will make his Flames debut tonight in San Jose. The Flames have given up the sixth-most shots per game so far, so Talbot will likely be under siege against a Sharks team that is starting to find their way. Talbot was 11-17-3 with a 3.40 GAA and .892 SV% in 32 games with the Oilers and Flyers last year.

Talbot will start Tuesday in Dallas.

Talbot allowed three goals on 30 shots in the Flyers 5-2 loss in Carolina on Saturday. With the Flyers out of the playoff race, they will go with Talbot again on Tuesday, likely just to get a few more looks at him as a potential backup to Carter Hart next season. Talbot is 1-1-0 while stopping 72 of the 79 shots (.911 SV%) in three appearances since joining the Flyers.

The Flyers acquired Cam Talbot from the Oilers for Anthony Stolarz.

The Oilers needed to shed some cap-space so that they could activate defenseman Andrej Sekera and Talbot is in the final year of a three-year deal that carries a $4.166M AAV cap-hit and Stolarz’s $761K AAV provides them with over $3.4M in savings. Since his breakout year in 2017, Talbot has struggled—tying for 39th in the NHL in SV% (.903) and 43rd in GAA (3.13). Talbot has ties to rookie netminder Carter Hart, as they train together in the summer, so bringing in a quality veteran to help Hart along the way is the reason the Flyers made this deal. If Talbot plays well, Philly may re-sign him and make Hart-Talbot their 1-2 punch in net for the next couple of seasons.

Talbot will start Thursday in Minnesota.

Talbot was pulled after allowing four goals on 27 shots in the Oilers loss to the Blackhawks on Tuesday. In his last four outings, Talbot has gone 0-2-1 with a 5.07 GAA and .864 SV%. Even facing a Wild team that is 13-13-1 on the road this season, Talbot should likely be left on you bench or on the waiver-wire.

Talbot will start Tuesday in San Jose.

Talbot stopped all 39 shots that he faced in the Oilers shutout win in Anaheim on Sunday. After entering in relief on Saturday and standing on his head on Sunday, Talbot earned a second straight start tonight in San Jose. Talbot allowed seven goals on 40 shots vs. the Sharks right after Christmas, so look elsewhere for a reliable starter tonight.
