EDMONTON, Alberta – Cam Talbot made 40 saves for his third shutout of the season, leading the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.
Jordan Eberle and Matt Hendricks scored for the Oilers, who have won two in a row and seven of their last 11. Talbot has 11 career shutouts.
Jacob Markstrom stopped 23 of 25 shots for the Canucks, who have lost three in a row.
It appeared Vancouver might have gotten a goal five minutes into the second period as a puck slipped under Talbot while defenseman Darnell Nurse and the Canucks' Brendan Gaunce crashed into the net. It didn't count after a video review showed the incidental contact with Talbot.
