The Sabres were happy to learn that Michal Neuvirth's lower-body injury is not considered serious.
He will miss games Saturday and Tuesday but will likely be able to return to practice sometime next week. That's a good thing for a Buffalo squad that needs above average goaltending to have any chance to win. Neuvirth has been far superior to Jhonas Enroth this season. Nov 22 - 9:29 AM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) is projected to be out "longer than day to day," according to coach Ted Nolan.

The Sabres still have to examine Neuvirth's lower-body injury further. He was injured late in the first period of Tuesday's 4-1 win over San Jose. Jhonas Enroth will occupy the crease during his absence.

Michal Neuvirth left Tuesday's contest against the Sharks due to a lower body injury.

There is no word on the nature or severity of the injury just yet, but we'll pass along those details as they become available.

Michal Neuvirth will make his second consecutive start Tuesday night when Buffalo takes on the Sharks.

After stopping 32-34 shots Toronto sent his way in the 6-2 win last Saturday night, the Sabres are riding the hot (operative wording) hand. This'll be his tenth start of the season and has a .918 save percentage, which is pretty good considering the team in front of him and his 2.96 GAA.

Michal Neuvirth kicked away 32 shots in the Sabres’ 6-2 win against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Neuvirth will probably take out his team for dinner after this game as goal support has been hard to come by in Buffalo. Neuvirth was excellent, giving up both goals in the second period. All things considered, the fact he has a 2.96 goals-against average and .918 save percentage isn’t that bad. He’s still a hail-mary play in fantasy leagues, though.

Updating an earlier item, Michal Neuvirth will in fact be in goal for the Sabres when they face off against the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

A good choice considering how much better Neuvirth has been than Jhonas Enroth thus far. We still can't recommend you start him, though.

Michal Neuvirth will start for the Sabres on Saturday.

Neuvirth allowed six goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's contest, but he's been one of the Sabres better players this season. He has a 3.07 GAA and .915 save percentage in eight games, which is admittedly not great numbers, but the Sabres are a horrible team.

Michal Neuvirth and the Buffalo Sabres suffered a familiar fate Tuesday as they dropped a 6-1 decision to St. Louis.

Neuvirth allowed all six goals in the loss and faced a total of 29 St. Louis shots in total. The defeat drops the former Capital's record to 2-5-1 on the year and further damages his peripheral stats. His GAA is an unsightly 3.07, however his save percentage is little better at .915.

Michal Neuvirth will probably be in goal for Buffalo on Tuesday against St. Louis.

Jhonas Enroth hasn't won a game since Oct. 14 and he was rocked for six goals on 39 shots against Pittsburgh on Saturday. Neuvirth has a 1-1-1 record in three appearances this month, but he's played well in all of them.
Nov 10 - 1:53 PM

Michal Neuvirth made 49 saves but it wasn’t enough as Buffalo lost 3-2 to Edmonton on Friday.

The Oilers took a whopping 52 shots on goal in the game. Neuvirth was the only reason this game was so close. The Sabres have lost a lot of tight games, but their roster is lacking. Their goaltending has been consistently good, but unless you get fantasy points for saves, you will want to stay away from Buffalo’s goalies. The 26-year-old is now 2-4-1 with 2.66 goals-against-average and a .929 save-percentage.

Michal Neuvirth will play between the pipes for Buffalo on Friday.

Jhonas Enroth was initially scheduled to start, but coach Ted Nolan has decided to give Neuvirth a third straight start. He's outplayed Enroth so far this season with a 2.60 GAA and a .925 save percentage in six games.

Buffalo goalie Michal Neuvirth turned in a first-rate effort in the Sabres' 2-1 shootout loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.

Neuvirth kicked out 31 of 32 Montreal shots in regulation and overtime before Montreal's P.A. Parenteau beat him for the game winner in the shootout session. Parenteau also scored the only goal against Neuvirth in regulation. Neuvirth is now 2-3-1 on the season, with a goals-against average of 2.60 and a save percentage of .925, respectable numbers with a poor squad.
Nov 5 - 10:52 PM

Buffalo Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth made 36 out of 38 saves in a 3-2 shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings.

Neuvirth now has wins in two of his three last starts. The 26-year-old has been solid so far this season considering the circumstances.

Look for Michal Neuvirth to get the start against the Red Wings Sunday afternoon.

We can't imagine why you would want to start Neuvirth in your hockey pool given how the Sabres can't score, but if you do, bear in mind the game starts at 5:00 pm ET.
Nov 2 - 9:37 AM

Michal Neuvirth struggled to keep his head above water Tuesday as the turned aside 33 of 37 shots in a 4-0 thrashing against the Maple Leafs.

Neuvirth was the primary reason the score of this game wasn't more significantly lopsided since the Sabres offered him nothing in the way of support. His record falls to 1-3-0 with the loss and he continues to share time in goal with Jhonas Enroth.
