Cam Talbot: ‘Maybe I need to start’ flopping and diving to get a goalie interference call


Cam Talbot had some harsh words following Edmonton’s overtime loss to Anaheim, specifically about the Ducks’ first goal, which was reviewed for possible goalie interference.

The Oilers goalie had Corey Perry right in front of him and there appeared to be contact between the two on Ryan Getzlaf‘s goal, but officials deemed after a challenge and video review that there was no interference, allowing the goal to stand.

That started the Ducks’ comeback. They eventually defeated the Oilers 4-3 in OT to even the series 2-2 as it shifts back to Anaheim.

“I don’t know what else to say on that one,” Talbot told reporters.

“I mean, I try to play with integrity and not flop and dive. I don’t get the call. Maybe I need to start doing that to get the call. I don’t know what else to do on that one. He clearly hits my blocker and my pad and no way I can make that save.”

Talbot made 35 saves in the loss.
