Cam Talbot is basically having issues stopping the puck this yr for the Oilers, and his points got here to a head — fairly actually — on Saturday.
The Oilers goalie allowed a objective to Coyotes proper wing Conor Garland in Edmonton on Saturday, and stated objective got here off of Garland’s face.

On the play in query, the Coyotes have been on an influence play when Garland tried to deflect a cross on web coming from behind Talbot.
However Alex Galchenyuk’s cross went to Jordan Oesterle past Talbot and Oesterle put a shot on web.
Garland did not precisely know the place the puck was as he had fallen down a second earlier than, and Oesterle’s wrist shot hit him within the face and miraculously bounced into the web.
The objective was Garland’s seventh of the yr.
It is simply been that type of yr for Talbot and Edmonton goalies basically.
Talbot is permitting a career-worst 3.18 targets per sport and has a career-low .896 save proportion.
Edmonton’s goalies as a complete have not fared a lot better because the Oilers are 22nd within the NHL with an .897 save proportion.
