Michal Neuvirth will start against Carolina on Monday night.

He hasn't been in the crease since Nov. 10 against Colorado when he allowed four goals on 40 shots in a 4-0 loss. Neuvirth has three wins and three shutouts this season.
Nov 23 - 5:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth (upper body) is available for Thursday's game.

Neuvirth didn't dress for Tuesday's contest due to the ailment. Philadelphia has already taken the step of sending Anthony Stolarz back to the minors though, so it seems the team is confident in Neuvirth's ability to return.
Nov 19 - 11:15 AM

Michal Neuvirth is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

He showed up late for Tuesday's morning skate and left first after a brief conversation with the trainer.
Nov 17 - 12:40 PM

Michal Neuvirth allowed four goals on 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to Colorado.

Neuvirth will want to have Jarome Iginla's first period goal back, as the Colorado forward whiffed on the puck but it still managed to sneak in. The 27-year-old has just one win in his last five starts. Fantasy GMs should stay away from Philadelphia's crease for the time being.

Michal Neuvirth will get a fourth straight start Tuesday.

"Michal earned this start," coach Dave Hakstol said. "He's done a great job for his teammates ... in particular, his last two starts in Calgary and Winnipeg." Thanks in large part to three shutouts this season, Neuvirth has posted a 1.81 GAA and a .945 save percentage in eight appearances this season. He has a 1-2-1 record in his last four outings.
Nov 10 - 2:35 PM

Michal Neuvirth leads the league with three shutouts.

Neuvirth also became the first Philadelphia goalie to get three or more shutouts in his first seven starts. He's played in eight contests total, including a relief appearance. Steve Mason has played in eight games too and thus far the goaltenders have been statistically night and day. Neuvirth has a 1.81 GAA and .945 save percentage while Mason has a 3.34 GAA and .902 save percentage.
Nov 9 - 11:08 AM

Michal Neuvirth kicked out 28 shots to post the shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 victory over the Jets Saturday night.

Neuvirth has had a very impressive start to his 2015-16 campaign as Steve Mason's backup. He now boasts a 3-2-1 record with a .945 save percentage. Neuvirth also leads the NHL in shutouts with three. If he continues playing at this level and Mason continues to struggle, the Flyers may opt for a job share model rather than a straight starter /backup situation.
Nov 7 - 10:08 PM

Because Steve Mason won't be over his illness, Michal Neuvrith is expected to get the crease in Saturday's game with Winnipeg.

Neuvrith had a good game against Calgary, but was the unfortunate 2-1 loser in overtime after turning away 28 shots. Only 13 pucks have beaten Neuvirth in seven games thus far, but the Jets are one of the better offensive teams in the league through the first month. So you may want to find a more favorable matchup.
Nov 6 - 10:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth turned away 28 shots on Thursday night, but wound up on the wrong side of a 2-1 overtime loss to Calgary.

Neuvirth was stellar all night long, turning down breakaways and helping guide the Flyers to a standings point. Unfortunately a couple of bad bounces at bad times conspired against him and the Flyers. Neuvirth is now 2-2-1 with 13 goals against in seven games this season.
Nov 6 - 12:31 AM

Look for Michal Neuvirth to play between the pipes on Thursday.

Steve Mason is dealing with an illness and he will consequently serve as the team's backup. Neuvirth has a 2.13 GAA and .939 save percentage in six contests in 2015-16.
Nov 5 - 2:17 PM

Michael Neuvirth made 45 saves and allowed just two goals in a 4-2 Flyers' loss to Edmonton.

Neuvirth kept the tired Flyers in this game but it was in a losing cause. He's quietly been pretty good in four starts this season as he is 2-2 with a 2.13 goals-against-average and a stellar .939 save percentage to go with two shut-outs. He will earn more starts with these numbers on a Flyers team that needs a shakeup.
Nov 4 - 1:55 AM

Michal Neuvirth will be in goal for Philadelphia on Tuesday against Edmonton.

Steve Mason started Monday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver and he stopped 33 of the 30 shots he faced. Neuvirth is coming off a 3-1 loss to Buffalo on Oct. 30.
Nov 3 - 3:46 PM

Michal Neuvirth allowed three goals in Friday's 3-1 loss to Buffalo.

He faced 36 shots in the game. Neuvirth got his first start since being injured on Oct. 21 against Boston. The 27-year-old has a 2-1-0 record with a 1.91 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage in 2015-16. He's looked good in limited starts, and if he continues to play well, he could cut into Steve Mason's workload.
Oct 30 - 10:38 PM
