EDMONTON -- Cam Talbot is looking for a fast start this season, and the Edmonton Oilers goaltender thinks opening it against the New Jersey Devils in the NHL Global Series in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Oct. 6 can help propel the Oilers in a positive direction.

"Anytime you can get a road trip like that to start the season, guys are always together, you're on the plane, you're hanging out, you're in hotel rooms, it's just a fun time to be away with the guys," Talbot said Tuesday.

Global Series provides taste of NHL to Swedish fans

Games in Sweden deliver unmatched experience to hockey-mad populace

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

STOCKHOLM -- Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom sat in the stands at Ericsson Globe on Saturday surrounded by fellow Swedish hockey fans, many attending an NHL game in person for the first time.

It's that perspective, Lidstrom said, that makes the difference for fans here. It's the experience they got when they watched the Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche play two games in the 2017 SAP NHL Global Series that is the reason why the NHL's return will be remembered as a success, and why future visits here and in other European markets should be planned.

Karlsson star of Global Series with Senators

Defenseman says playing back home in Sweden 'one of most special feelings in world'

by Amalie Benjamin @AmalieBenjamin / NHL.com Staff Writer

STOCKHOLM -- For a moment, it was as if Ericsson Globe had transformed into Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday, as if a game in Stockholm was being played in Ottawa. 

Erik Karlsson had just set up Mark Stone for a goal, with a pass that might have qualified as ho-hum if one considered the source, but it sparked the crowd, tying the game 42 seconds after the Colorado Avalanche had taken the lead at 8:34 of the second period. They stood and cheered and rocked for their favorite son, come home to play hockey.
