Watch: Wild's Cam Talbot gets slap shot stuck in his face mask

That's...using your head?

Minnesota Wild goaltender Cam Talbot provided a highlight on Thursday night as he stopped a slap shot with his face mask.

Talbot made the save during the second period of the Wild's game with the St. Louis Blues. Justin Faulk wound up the heater from the blue line and unleashed it toward the net. As the puck came screaming in, Talbot stopped the shot with his helmet and became wedged in his face mask.

Talbot was fine, but his helmet needed some work after the play.

Talbot's save was part of building a 2-0 lead for the Wild despite being outshot by the Blues 24-8 through the first two periods.
