Calgary Flames Fantasy Spin

Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 23 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Bruins on Friday night. The Flames possessed a 3-1 lead within the first three and a half minutes of the contest, yet they could not hang on for the victory, allowing Boston to score three unanswered goals. Talbot was not able to hold off the league-leading Bruins despite a reduced shot total. The loss pegs him with a 9-10-1 record, a 2.83 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage headed into next game.

Detroit Red Wings Fantasy Spin

Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 40 shots in Friday's 4-1 road loss against the New York Islanders. Bernier did a nice job for the Red Wings, giving them a chance to win late. The Islanders led just 2-1 with 2:35 left in regulation after Anthony Mantha struck on the power play. The goaltender has emerged as the No. 1 backstop for the Red Wings, and he might be a valuable trade chip for the organization leading up to Monday's deadline.
