It was Talbot's 2nd start and very first win with the Flames. The seven-year veteran, who was with Edmonton and Philadelphia last season, signed with Calgary as a complimentary representative.

He enabled up an early second-period objective to Jakob Silfverberg but stopped Silfverberg on a breakaway midway through the duration before making 11 conserves in the 3rd, many on one-timers. Nick Ritchie had a point-blank opportunity in front of the net however might not convert.

"When they pressed, Talbot existed," Calgary coach Bill Peters said. "The work he has actually had with us has actually been great. We have a lot of self-confidence in him and as we get busier you will see him more."

"It felt good to contribute, it's been a while because I've done that," Stone said. "To act and get rewarded was good."

Backlund scored when he got a pass from Matthew Tkachuk on a 2-on-1 rush after a neutral zone turnover and beat Gibson with a snap shot from the right faceoff circle.

"I don't believe Gibson anticipated an early pass. I was going to catch it and just changed my mind," stated Backlund, who has a goal in 2 straight video games.

Gibson made 27 conserves for Anaheim, which lost for the very first time in 5 house games.

Silfverberg opened the scoring 12 seconds into the second when he beat Talbot top rack from the left faceoff circle after taking the pass from Hampus Lindholm. Silfverberg-- who has 5 goals this season-- has actually scored in 3 straight video games.

"I thought we had many chances to not only tie it however go on by a couple and we just could not get it in the net," Anaheim coach Dallas Eakins stated.
