Goalie nods: Red-hot Talbot goes back to back


News and notes from around the crease…

Rangers to back to Cam

Just one night after stopping 29 of 30 shots in a crucial win over the Islanders, Cam Talbot will be back in goal Wednesday when the Rangers take on the Caps on Rivalry Night on NBCSN.

Talbot, the NHL’s reigning third star of the week, has been brilliant over his last seven games, allowing just 10 goals while posting two shutouts. His finest work, though, has come over the last four games — against a quartet of playoff teams (Nashville, Detroit, Chicago, NYI), Talbot has gone 3-0-1 with a .966 save percentage.

For the Capitals, Braden Holtby will be in goal.
