Per the AHL Transaction Log, the Rangers have recalled goalie Cameron Talbot from the AHL. This is a bit surprising. I can only think of two things: either there’s an injury that we don’t know about; or he’s being called up to work with the guru of goaltending coaches Benoit Allaire. I’m betting there was an injury to The King that we will hear about shortly. Talbot has a 2.56 GAA and a .913 SV% in 19 games with the CT Whale.
Update: Apparently Talbot is a locker room cancer. There has to be a reason for him to be up in the NHL now. I’d assume Lundqvist has an injury and can’t go tonight.
This is what happens when people start jokes while I’m out of the country. I think they are legitimate. Damn you Jim.
