You can't allow the goalie to get that much action. Normally, he keeps them in games, but what happened tonight is what I always said would happen if Talbot didn't play well.

I want to see what he does next year. If he keeps improving, there's no reason he won't be ready to play in 2014-15 as a full-time back-up, and as early as next year as an occasional fill-in if one of the two regular goalies are injured.
