THE BIG MATCHUP

HEN­RIK LUNDQVIST VS. CAM TAL­BOT

Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

The King meets one of his sub­jects, his for­mer backup. Lundqvist isn’t the goalie he once was be­cause of his age and sheer vol­ume of games, but he could be go­ing to the Hall of Fame and he was out­stand­ing in the Rangers’ first win of the sea­son over San Jose on Thurs­day. He faced 30 shots in the first 40 min­utes. Tal­bot, the Oil­ers’ No. 1 for the last three years, took over from Lundqvist when he took a puck in the throat in 2015 and pro­pelled his chance to shine into a June draft trade to ed­mon­ton.
