Mar. 24 8:21 AM PT9:21 AM MT10:21 AM CT11:21 AM ET15:21 GMT23:21 8:21 AM MST10:21 AM EST19:21 UAE11:21 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot was pulled for the second straight game Thursday, allowing four goals on 15 shots through two periods.
Analysis: Talbot was starting for a second straight night, having given up four goals in less than two periods at Anaheim on Wednesday. In his previous two starts, however, he shut out the Canucks and Kings. He's made a league-leading 67 starts, so it's possible Talbot is a bit worn down at this point.
Mar. 23 7:31 AM PT8:31 AM MT9:31 AM CT10:31 AM ET14:31 GMT22:31 7:31 AM MST9:31 AM EST18:31 UAE10:31 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot gave up four goals on 18 shots before being pulled midway through the second period in Wednesday's 4-3 loss in Anaheim.
Analysis: Talbot had been coming off two straight shutouts before getting yanked mid-game for just the second time all season. Starting his 13th game in a row, Talbot seemed a step slow from the start. Edmonton next plays a home-and-home set with Colorado, a team which he's faced three times and has allowed there goals in each.
Mar. 21 7:34 AM PT8:34 AM MT9:34 AM CT10:34 AM ET14:34 GMT22:34 7:34 AM MST9:34 AM EST18:34 UAE10:34 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 35 saves Monday, posting his second consecutive shutout as the Oilers beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-0.
Analysis: It was his seventh shutout of the season, one off the league lead and the most by an Oilers goalie since Tommy Salo in 2001-02. Talbot, who is 6-2-1 with a 1.77 GAA in his last nine games, made his NHL-high 65th start. "I think the more I play, the better I feel and the more confident I get," he said.
Mar. 19 8:15 AM PT9:15 AM MT10:15 AM CT11:15 AM ET15:15 GMT23:15 8:15 AM MST10:15 AM EST19:15 UAE11:15 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 33 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and the Oilers topped the Canucks 2-0 on Saturday night.
Analysis: Talbot appeared in his 11th straight game and "was great, as he is most nights," said Oilers star Connor McDavid. The netminder, who notched his 36th win, has gone 5-2-1 with a 1.99 GAA in his last eight starts.
Mar. 13 8:02 AM PT9:02 AM MT10:02 AM CT11:02 AM ET15:02 GMT23:02 8:02 AM MST10:02 AM EST19:02 UAE11:02 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 37 saves on 39 shots in the Oilers' 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Sunday.

Analysis: Talbot has faced an average of just 26 shots over his last five starts, posting an awful .892 save percentage in that span. He appears to be a bad play if he starts Edmonton's next game Friday at home versus Pittsburgh. Talbot has a 3.66 GAA in his last six home starts and gave up four goals earlier this season against the Penguins - the league's highest-scoring team - in his first career start against them.
Mar. 1 7:25 AM PT8:25 AM MT9:25 AM CT10:25 AM ET15:25 GMT23:25 8:25 AM MST10:25 AM EST19:25 UAE10:25 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 25 saves to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

Feb. 22 6:51 PM PT7:51 PM MT8:51 PM CT9:51 PM ET2:51 GMT10:51 7:51 PM MST9:51 PM EST6:51 UAE (+1)21:51 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 31 saves in a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Wednesday.

Analysis: Talbot has won his last three starts but yielded nine goals in the three starts prior to Saturday.
Feb. 15 8:32 AM PT9:32 AM MT10:32 AM CT11:32 AM ET16:32 GMT0:32 9:32 AM MST11:32 AM EST20:32 UAE11:32 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot bounced back with a 23-save effort in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Arizona.
Analysis: Talbot, pulled three nights earlier against Chicago, improved to 3-1-1 with a 1.78 GAA against the Coyotes this season but won't see them again until next season. He potentially has another favorable matchup Thursday when Edmonton hosts the Flyers, a team he's shut out in three of his five career starts.
Feb. 12 8:31 AM PT9:31 AM MT10:31 AM CT11:31 AM ET16:31 GMT0:31 9:31 AM MST11:31 AM EST20:31 UAE11:31 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot was pulled after two periods Saturday, stopping just 16 of 20 shots in a loss to Chicago.

Feb. 5 1:55 PM PT2:55 PM MT3:55 PM CT4:55 PM ET21:55 GMT5:55 2:55 PM MST4:55 PM EST1:55 UAE (+1)16:55 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot halted a personal three-game losing streak by registering his fifth shutout of the season in Sunday's 1-0 shootout win at Montreal. The Edmonton netminder made 22 saves before thwarting all three chances he faced in the deciding phase.
Analysis: Talbot, who's now tied for third in the NHL with 27 wins, continues to do his part to keep the rising Oilers in the hunt for a Pacific Division title. The 29-year-old owns an excellent 1.66 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage over an 11-game stretch in which he's 7-3-1.
Feb. 1 7:23 AM PT8:23 AM MT9:23 AM CT10:23 AM ET15:23 GMT23:23 8:23 AM MST10:23 AM EST19:23 UAE10:23 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot was pulled in the second period Tuesday after giving up four goals on 19 shots in a 5-1 loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Talbot's return from the All-Star break was a rough one, especially after he had gone 6-0-1 with a 1.37 GAA in his previous seven starts. However, he wasn't necessarily to blame for the bad outing. "You can add up the distance from the net of all their goals put together, and I don't think it goes from the goal line to the blue line. That's not on the goaltender, that's the five-man unit in the D-zone," Oilers winger Milan Lucic said.
Jan. 27 9:06 AM PT10:06 AM MT11:06 AM CT12:06 PM ET17:06 GMT1:06 10:06 AM MST12:06 PM EST21:06 UAE12:06 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 32 saves in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: The All-Star break might not be coming at an ideal time for the red-hot Talbot, who is 6-0-1 with a 1.37 GAA in his last seven starts. He's had only one regulation loss in his last 14 road starts.
Jan. 26 7:58 AM PT8:58 AM MT9:58 AM CT10:58 AM ET15:58 GMT23:58 8:58 AM MST10:58 AM EST19:58 UAE10:58 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot turned aside 26 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 win in Anaheim.

Jan. 21 9:21 AM PT10:21 AM MT11:21 AM CT12:21 PM ET17:21 GMT1:21 10:21 AM MST12:21 PM EST21:21 UAE12:21 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot made 42 saves through regulation and overtime Friday but allowed Nashville to score on both of its shootout attempts as Edmonton lost 3-2.

Analysis: Talbot made his league leading 39th start in goal. In January, he's had stop just 36 of 39 shots in two wins over New Jersey but has allowed 11 goals in his other three starts.
Jan. 8 7:21 AM PT8:21 AM MT9:21 AM CT10:21 AM ET15:21 GMT23:21 8:21 AM MST10:21 AM EST19:21 UAE10:21 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot posted 19 saves in the Oilers' 2-1 overtime win at New Jersey on Saturday.
Analysis: The NHL's leader in starts (37) and minutes played by a goaltender, Talbot improved to 6-1-2 over his last nine assignments. The steady netminder owns a solid 2.04 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage during that stretch.
Jan. 5 6:50 PM PT7:50 PM MT8:50 PM CT9:50 PM ET2:50 GMT10:50 7:50 PM MST9:50 PM EST6:50 UAE (+1)21:50 ETNaN:� BRT - Talbot, making his NHL-high 36th start, made 33 saves to beat the Bruins 4-3 on Thursday.

He stopped 32 shots in Friday's 5-3 win at Calgary, helping the Oilers complete the home-and-home sweep.
Analysis: Talbot has a 3.51 goals-against average in two games, but much like Grant Fuhr in the Oilers' glory days, the goaltender doesn't need to be outstanding because of the offensive talent the team has. If Talbot can just be a steady presence, the Oilers will win more than their fair share of games.
Oct. 13 10:17 AM PT11:17 AM MT12:17 PM CT1:17 PM ET17:17 GMT1:17 10:17 AM MST12:17 PM EST21:17 UAE13:17 ET14:17 BRT - Talbot came up with 37 saves in Edmonton's 7-4 season-opening win over Calgary on Wednesday.
Analysis: Except for letting in a pair of short-handed goals while enduring a 20-shot barrage in the second period, Talbot was pretty solid in his 2016-17 debut. He also played reasonably well during the second half of last season, posting a 2.26 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage over his final 34 starts.
