Talbot post 2nd straight shutout; McDonagh, Stepan score

         

             Still waiting to find out if two consecutive shutouts is a record for by a first-year goalie for the Rangers. I’d be surprised if it wasn’t.

             “You have to stay focused, you can’t take a second off. Their next shot might be their best scoring chance, so you have to be ready,” said Talbot, who almost lost the shutout when Shea Weber hit the post twice in the last three minutes of the game at Bridgestone Arena.

            Talbot, who posted his 1st NHL shutout at the Bell Centre, joked that there were 28 more arenas to go. “I’ll take them anyway I can get them.” Two shutouts in a row? “I can get used to that.”
