Michal Neuvirth struggled against the Jets on Tuesday night as he allowed five goals on 36 shots in a 5-1 defeat.
The Sabres were dominated in all aspects of the game so it would be unfair to heap too much criticism on Neuvirth's shoulders, but this outing is good news for Jhonas Enroth's fantasy owners regardless. Neuvirth's record falls to 3-7-1 with the loss while his GAA rises to 3.06 and his save percentage tumbles to .915. Dec 17 - 1:11 AM

Michal Neuvirth will be the Buffalo Sabres' starter on Tuesday.

Jhonas Enroth has been great lately and Neuvirth has spent a lot of time warming the bench as a consequent. However, Enroth played Monday night, so this is an opportunity for Neuvirth to work his way back into Buffalo's picture. Neuvirth has a 2.87 GAA and .920 save percentage in 11 contests in 2014-15.
Dec 16 - 4:01 PM

Michal Neuvirth gave up three goals on 37 shots in Buffalo’s 3-2 loss to Florida on Saturday night.

All things considered, the Sabres’ netminders have done a pretty good job this season. The Sabres are dreadful from a possession standpoint, meaning the puck is primarily in their own end. Neuvirth has a 2.87 goals-against average and .920 save percentage this season, in what’s mainly been a backup role lately.
Dec 6 - 10:44 PM

Michal Neuvirth will start for the Sabres on Saturday.

It will be Neuvirth's first start since Nov. 18. Part of his absence was due to a lower-body injury, but he had to warm the bench even after he returned because Jhonas Enroth has been great lately. Neuvirth has a 2.85 GAA and .920 save percentage in 10 games in 2014-15.
Dec 5 - 4:35 PM

Michal Neuvirth has been waiting patiently on the bench for his next opportunity.

He has been healthy enough to play since late November, but Jhonas Enroth has seized control of Buffalo's crease with some great play. Neuvirth missed one game with a lower-body injury.
Dec 4 - 10:20 AM

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.
Nov 19 - 10:23 AM

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.
Nov 19 - 12:19 AM

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.
Nov 18 - 6:10 PM

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.
Nov 15 - 10:46 PM

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.
Nov 15 - 9:00 AM

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.
Nov 14 - 2:20 PM

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.
Nov 11 - 11:55 PM

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.
