Agreed. Huge difference with how the team plays. And it's not just a coincidence any more. Their compete level and defensive coverage is vastly superior with Cam in net. I'm not sure if it's because Cam is a rookie, or they just feel like taking some nights off, but last night was another example of a strong defensive system in front of him with limited chances.
IMO, the Rangers have only played poorly one night in front of Talbot, and it was against the Jets when he let up 4 goals.
