Talbot stopped 27 of 28 shots in Saturday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Sharks.
Talbot was great all series and it was no different Saturday. Aside from a blowout loss in Game 4, Talbot frustrated the Sharks with his poise and strong positional goaltending to help the Oilers advance to Round 2. He's built off a remarkable regular season and been a force for an Edmonton squad known for it's long history of goaltending problems. While he was snubbed for a Vezina Trophy nomination, Talbot is playing fantastic right now and will give the Ducks all kinds of problems in the next round.
Jones stopped 18 of 20 shots in Saturday's Game 6 loss to the Oilers.
With the loss, Jones and the Sharks are eliminated from the playoffs. The 27-year-old had a very strong postseason, but was left out to dry on the two goals Saturday and can't be faulted for the team's defeat in the series. He was a workhorse in the regular season and stayed strong in the postseason with an impressive .935 save percentage, so there's not much more you could ask for. Jones will once again be a popular fantasy option next season due to his undisputed starting role and great consistency.
Lundqvist stopped 27 of 28 shots in Saturday's series-clinching win over the Canadiens.
Lundvist made several remarkable stops on the night, including a great late toe save on Tomas Plekanec in the third period. The King outdueled Vezina Trophy nominee Carey Price in the series, posting a .947 save percentage and allowing two or fewer goals in three straight victories. The veteran is now moving onto the second round where the Rangers will face the winners of the Bruins-Senators series. Time is ticking down for Lundqvist, but with the way he's playing, the 35-year-old has a great chance at finally capturing that Stanley Cup.
Price stopped 20 of 22 shots in Saturday's Game 6 loss to the Rangers.
With the loss, Price and the Habs are eliminated from the playoffs. The 29-year-old had a strong individual postseason, posting a .933 save percentage, but ultimately he was outdueled by opposing netminder Henrik Lundqvist. Fresh off a Vezina Trophy nomination, Price will have to make an important decision this summer regarding his future with one year left on his contract. Whether or not he remains in Montreal, Price proved once again this season that he's a top-tier fantasy netminder.
