Talbot will start Wednesday in St. Louis.

Talbot allowed three goals on 30 shots in the Oilers loss in Los Angeles on November 25th. Talbot played solid in his first start under new coach Ken Hitchcock. Since he was hired, Mikko Koskinen has played very well, so Talbot could see some improvement on his 3.04 GAA going forward. Tonight he takes on a Blues team that has lost eight of their last 11 (3-8-0).
