Michal Neuvirth has exited Sunday afternoon's game against the Rangers because of a lower-body injury.

The Flyers already announced that Neuvirth will not return. He wasn't on the bench at the start of the second period after he allowed three goals on 14 shots in 20 minutes of action. Neuvirth was going to see plenty of action with Brian Elliott sidelined following core muscle surgery. This will likely put Philadelphia in the market for a goaltender.

Thomas Greiss (undisclosed) did not take part in Sunday's practice.

"He just tweaked something. We're going to have it looked at and make a final ruling here moving forward," coach Doug Weight said. "We're prepared for anything. Obviously Bridgeport is close so if we need to do something for tomorrow we'll be fine." Greiss posted a 45-save shutout on Friday against Carolina, but may have been hurt in the process.

The New York Rangers have sent Brandon Halverson back to Hartford of the AHL.

Halverson saw his first NHL action of his career Saturday when he replaced Henrik Lundqvist in the third period after Lundqvist surrendered five goals on 27 shots. Alexandar Georgiev had the flu which necessitated the emergency recall of Halverson. He gave up one goal on six shots Saturday and leaves with a .833 save percentage and a 4.78 GAA.

Connor Hellebuyck will get the nod Sunday night against Florida.

Hellebuyck has posted victories in his last two starts. He turned aside 30 shots in a 6-1 win over Colorado on Friday. Hellebuyck has a 30-8-8 record this year with a 2.34 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 48 appearances.

Keith Kinkaid will start Sunday's match against Carolina.

New Jersey had Eddie Lack between the pipes for Saturday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay. Kinkaid was in goal for a 5-2 victory versus the Hurricanes on Thursday night. He has a 12-7-2 record this season with a 3.24 goals-against average and .893 save percentage.

Miles Wood will face a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday.

Wood could be facing a suspension for a hit on Tampa Bay's Vladislav Namestnikov on Saturday night. He was assessed a two-minute penalty for boarding on the play and earned another two minutes for roughing on Andrej Sustr, who came to the aid of his Lightning teammate.

Devante Smith-Pelly was forced to listen to racial slurs while in the penalty box Saturday against the Blackhawks in Chicago.

The so-called fans were thrown out of the arena but they should be banned for life and forced to face criminal charges. "There’s absolutely no place in the game of hockey or our country for racism," Washington coach Barry Trotz said. "I think it’s disgusting, and there’s no place for it. ...It just shows ignorance." Smith-Pelly will comment on the situation Sunday. He has seven goals and 16 points in 54 games this season.
Feb 18 - 10:38 AM

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare injured his left hand in the first period Saturday.

Bellemare tried to play through it but lasted only a couple of more shifts before calling it a day at the 2:44 mark of the second period. He has five goals and 13 points this season so his fantasy value is negligible but he has been a big part of the Golden Knights success as a bottom-six forward. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Nate Schmidt had a goal and an assist Saturday in the Golden Knights 6-3 win over Montreal.

Schmidt has really come on of late offensively with two goals and eight points in his last eight games to give him five goals and 29 points in 58 games. Throw in a plus-16 rating and Schmidt is deserving of not only being picked up in most pools but being in your starting lineup.
