Talbot became the first Rangers goalie other than Henrik Lundqvist to have at least three shutouts in a season since Mike Dunham in 2002-03.”
On MSG last night, Talbot spoke with John Giannone:
- On the team defense, “we played great right off the get go. Giving up three shots to a team with that much firepower in the first period was pretty impressive and I think two of them came from outside the blue line so we did a great job of shutting them down five on five and I think the only time they really got some chances was on the PP which moves the puck around pretty well so we did a great job of tracking back and taking away their odd man rushes and everyone collapsed to the front and cleared out the rebounds that were there. A great team effort.”
