On Sunday, his Minnesota side defied the odds and stole Game 1 by defeating the Las Vegas Golden Knights 1-0 in overtime.

According to Zone Coverage Talbot made 42 stops to get the shutout and moved to 4-1-2 for the season and 7-4-2 for his career against old foes Vegas. Last year, Minnesota signed the free agent on a three-year, $11 million deal.

“I always say to myself, ‘Why’s he got to be a goalie? Why’d I marry a goalie,’” Kelly told the Athletic of her husband, nicknamed Wild Cam.

The Dallas, Texas native started dating the stopper when he was at University of Alabama-Huntsville. Tommy Train, her brother and Talbot’s former teammate, introduced them. They married in 2012.

The Talbots now have two children, four-year-old twins, Sloane and Landon. Kelly told The Athletic: “He’s such a good dad. Just seeing how he is with the twins is just amazing. He always wants to be involved.”

Cam introduced the new arrivals on Twitter. Landon Thomas and Sloane Colleen Talbot were born in 2016 via cesarean section.

“We couldn’t be more in love with these two,” the goalie tweeted.

He added at the time: “We kind of planned it when we sat down with the doctor a couple of months ago when we came to town.

“We looked at the schedule and we said, ‘this day works. It is between two games, will probably get the day off. I am sure the coaches will allow it,’ so it’s been scheduled for a couple months now. Something to look forward to for sure.”
