Michal Neuvirth (knee) is expected to start skating again on Monday and hopefully return to the Flyers lineup in 10 days.
Neuvirth was projected to miss four-six weeks so this will be on the early side of the prognostication if true. Neuvirth was 4-2 with a .859 save percentage and a GAA of 3.54 before his injury and should get about 40 percent of the starts once he returns to action. Use him accordingly. Dec 5 - 9:21 AM

Michal Neuvirth (knee) has been placed on long-term injured reserve.

Neuvirth is projected to miss four-to-six weeks with a left knee injury, but he will not require surgery. The Flyers brought up Anthony Stolarz from the minors on Monday to replace Neuvirth.
Nov 14 - 11:30 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers have lost Michal Neuvirth for the next four-to-six weeks with a lower body injury.

Tough break for Neuvirth who was challenging Steve Mason for the starter's crease all season, and will be an UFA at season's end. In nine games and eight starts this season, the veteran posted a 4-2 record with 25 goals against and an .859 save percentage.
Nov 13 - 4:57 PM

The injury to Michal Neuvirth Saturday could be to his knee.

Neuvirth suffered the injury late in the first but continued to play. He was replaced by Steve Mason to start the second. Neuvirth stopped six of seven shots and was not involved in the decision. He is 4-2-0 with a 3.54 GAA and a .859 save percentage, not exactly any reason to write home about. Anthony Stolarz will be recalled should Neuvirth require any time on the sideline.
Nov 13 - 8:23 AM

Michal Neuvirth left Saturday night's game against Minnesota with an apparent lower-body injury and was replaced in the net by Steve Mason.

Neuvirth was seen stretching and in apparent discomfort. He gave up one goal at the 12:27 mark to Brandon Manning. He was coming off his worst game of the season after giving up five goals against Montreal on November 5th.
Nov 12 - 8:36 PM

Michal Neuvirth will face Minnesota on Saturday night.

If there's any silver lining with playing a Flyers goalie at the moment, it may be that Neuvirth has played the Wild well in his career so far. Through two games he's 1-1 with just four goals against.
Nov 12 - 5:37 PM

Michal Neuvirth gave up five goals on only 17 shots Saturday night as the Philadelphia Flyers lost a 5-4 contest to the Montreal Canadiens.

Neuvirth ended the night in the .700s for the second time this season. His previous worst performance came with a .750 save percentage in the October 18th loss to the Blackhawks. On Saturday night, he had a .706. His season long percentage save of .876 did not raise many hopes entering the game and neither did his average goals against of 3.31. Both marks are even worse after Saturday’s contest. Notably, Neuvirth was coming off his best outing of the season with a 3-2 victory over the Islanders Thursday night.
Nov 5 - 10:26 PM

Michal Neuvirth will face Montreal on Sunday night.

Neuvirth has won each of his last three starts, turning away a combined 73 of 81 shots in that time. With just two Quality Starts and two Really Bad Starts through six goes thus far, he's far from a sure thing. Then again, Montreal lost to Columbus 10-0 last night.
Nov 5 - 12:28 PM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 25 of 27 shots in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the New York Islanders.

The Flyers were down 2-1 in the final minute of the third period, but they were able to tie the game with 58 seconds left. Neuvirth stopped all three of New York's shooters in the shootout, while Claude Giroux scored the game-winner for the Flyers. Neuvirth has now won three games in a row and he owns a 4-1-0 record this season. He'll enter his next start with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage. It's clear that he's the number one goalie in Philly right now.
Nov 3 - 10:46 PM

Michal Neuvirth will be back in goal for the Flyers again on Thursday night.

It will be his third straight start and second in two nights after he played in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over Detroit. Neuvirth has allowed three goals against in each of his previous two outings, but he won them both. He owns a 3.64 goals-against average and an .865 save percentage this season.
Nov 3 - 5:24 PM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 22 of 25 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 OT win over the Red Wings.

The Flyers haven't lost a regular season home game to the Red Wings since January of 1997. It looked like that streak would be snapped tonight, as Detroit jumped out to 2-0 and 3-2 leads, but the Flyers managed to come back. Neuvirth has won back-to-back games and has a 3-1-0 record with a 3.64 goals-against-average and a .865 save percentage.
Nov 2 - 11:16 PM

Michal Neuvirth will tend to Philadelphia's goal on Wednesday night versus Detroit.

He started Sunday's match against Carolina and turned aside 26 shots in a 4-3 win. Neuvirth is being rewarded for that performance with a second straight start.
Nov 2 - 2:51 PM

Michal Neuvirth made 26 saves on 29 shots to help the Flyers down Carolina 4-3 on Sunday night.

Neuvirth improves to 2-1 this season, but still has work to do in order to repair his stats from shaky efforts in his first few games. He has a .861 save percentage and 3.84 goals against average.
Oct 30 - 9:03 PM

Michal Neuvirth will face Carolina on Sunday afternoon.

It's been a rocky start to the season for Neuvirth to say the least. He's stopped just 61 of 72 pucks so far and was pulled on Tuesday from his start midway through the game. If you have another option, you may want to go with it.
Oct 30 - 2:59 PM

Michal Neuvirth was pulled in Tuesday's game against Buffalo.

Neuvirth lasted just 35:43 in tonight's game. He allowed three goals on 17 shots before being yanked. Steve Mason is now between the pipes for the Flyers. Philadelphia currently trails 3-0 heading into the third period.
