WINNIPEG -- Cam Talbot made 39 saves and the Edmonton Oilers won for the fourth time in their past five games with a 2-1 victory against the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 at MTS Centre on Sunday.

Talbot has won his past four starts. He has a .979 save percentage over that stretch.

"The result of him being a wall back there, giving us an opportunity to scratch and claw for wins, has been pretty impressive," Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. "If we can keep him up and running and healthy, not only this [season] but moving forward, we feel we've got a really good one there."
