Minnesota Wild making surprising decision in goal for game 6

After the Minnesota Wild dominated games 2 & 3 to take a 2-1 series lead over the St. Louis Blues, the Blues have won 2 straight and have scored 10 goals in the last 2 games. The series is now 3-2 Blues and with the risk of elimination tonight, the Wild are making some lineup changes.

According to Minnesota Wild Insider Michael Russo, it looks like Cam Talbot will get the start over Marc-Andre Fleury tonight. Fleury has had a mediocre playoff run so far, his poor save percentage .906 and goals against average 3.04, are not going to help the Wild win.






After game 3, we saw the Blues change goalies as Ville Husso was originally the starter and put up similar numbers to Fleury, and Binnington has put up back to back wins and a save percentage above .930, so perhaps the Wild are hoping for the same result.

It's important to note that Cam Talbot has actually not lost a game since the beginning of March, and highly outplayed Fleury since his arrival in Minnesota, so perhaps this is the spark that Wild needed.
