Ottawa Senators to part ways with goaltender Cam Talbot after contract negotiations break down

The Ottawa Senators have announced that goaltender Cam Talbot will not be returning to the team next season, according to general manager Pierre Dorion, who spoke to reporters on Monday. Talbot, who is a pending free agent, posted a record of 17-14-2 with a 2.93 goals-against average and .898 save percentage this season. Dorion cited Talbot’s desire for a two-year contract and higher salary demands as reasons for the decision not to re-sign him. The 35-year-old Talbot was acquired by the Senators in a trade with the Minnesota Wild in July 2021, in exchange for goalie Filip Gustavsson.

Florida Panthers’ Tkachuk Sees Team as “Spoiler,” not “Underdog” Against Bruins in Playoff Series

Florida Panthers star Matthew Tkachuk shares his thoughts on his team’s chances against the Boston Bruins in their first-round playoff series. Tkachuk believes that labeling the Panthers as “underdogs” would be putting it too mildly, saying that it’s more accurate to describe his team as a “spoiler” given the talent and success of the Bruins this season. The Bruins set NHL regular-season records for wins and points, earning the Presidents’ Trophy for the league’s best record.

Tkachuk acknowledges that the Panthers will need to play very well, if not perfectly, to win a game in the series. He notes that the Bruins have had the best season in NHL history, making it a great challenge for his team. The Panthers had to battle into the last week of the season to secure a playoff spot and will rely on goalie Alex Lyon, who won six of eight games down the stretch, to start in Game 1 over veteran Sergei Bobrovsky.

Meanwhile, the Bruins are dealing with illness and injuries among their players, including uncertainty about their starting goaltender. Coach Jim Montgomery has said that an illness is ripping through the locker room, and whether it’s sickness or a lower-body injury, goalie Linus Ullmark is a game-time decision. Backup Jeremy Swayman is also under the weather, so the Bruins called up Brandon Bussi from AHL Providence as an emergency third goaltender for Game 1. The status of team captain Patrice Bergeron, who has been missing from practice due to illness and injury, is also uncertain. Despite these challenges, Montgomery believes the team has incredible depth and a chance for success if they play “Bruins hockey.”
