During the Oilers 40th Anniversary Season, EdmontonOilers.com is looking back at the history of the franchise weekly with Throwback Thursdays.
EDMONTON, AB - Oilers 3, Jets 0 | Box Score
It was the second outdoor game in the franchise's history. Thirteen years after Edmonton played in the NHL's first outdoor game in 2003, the Oilers faced the Jets at Investors Group Field, home of the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Some would call it the ideal conditions for a game outdoors. However, temperatures above zero degrees Celsius didn't stop Cam Talbot from rocking a toque on his helmet, just as Jose Theodore first did it back in 2003.
And with over 33,000 fans in attendance, it was number 33 between the pipes who stole the spotlight.
Talbot turned aside all 31 shots he faced for the 12th shutout of his career, becoming the third goaltender in NHL history to record a shutout "under the lights."
