Talbot, Wild beat Kings 3-2, for 2-game sweep to open season

LOS ANGELES (AP) Frederick Gaudreau, Victor Rask and Ryan Hartman scored in the second period and the Minnesota Wild held on for a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Cam Talbot started for the second straight night and made 29 saves. He stopped 57 of 60 shots to win back-to-back games against Anaheim and Los Angeles.

"Goalies don't typically play back-to-backs too often anymore. Like I said, it is early so he felt good, and he looked good as well," Hartman said. "He's calm, he's collected, he makes some big saves when he has to and that's what you need from your starting goalie."
