Michal Neuvirth will probably play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Neuvirth's first start since March 9. He has a 2.91 GAA and .887 save percentage in 26 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.

He now has losses in five of his last six starts in goal for the Flyers, giving up 20 goals during that span. Many were left scratching their head when the Flyers announced Neuvirth would be starting rather than Mason who has been red hot lately. Neuvirth wasn't bad but he could have done better on Marner's goal that made the game 3-1. The loss drops his record to 10-10-1 on the year.
Mar 9 - 10:27 PM

Michal Neuvirth will start Thursday's game against Toronto.

Steve Mason has been excellent lately, so it is a bit surprising to see Neuvirth start in an important game. Coach Dave Hakstol doesn't want to overload his goalies because the Flyers have a busy upcoming schedule. Neuvirth was in goal for a 2-1 win over the Leafs on Jan. 26 at the Wells Fargo Center.
Mar 9 - 3:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth might play between the pipes on Thursday.

Steve Mason has made four straight starts and has done well over that span, but the Flyers are up against Toronto next, which hasn't been a favorable opponent for Mason. He has a 3.43 GAA and .876 save percentage in his career against Toronto. Neuvirth hasn't excelled against Toronto either, but he's a more reasonable 2.87 GAA and .901 save percentage versus the Leafs.

An interesting wrinkle in Michal Neuvirth's contract extension has emerged.

It's not much, but he'll earn $250K in signing bonuses in each of his two years the contract is signed for. Mind you, his $2.5M cap hit remains. The structure matters as it alleviates a bit of salary pressure from the Flyers, or whoever is paying him at the time, it ensures some flexibility for the Flyers, and it acts as a guard against the potential lockout that looms over the National Hockey League. All in all, it's a fair deal for each party involved.
Mar 2 - 3:26 PM

Michal Neuvirth has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Neuvirth will get $2.5 million per season and it certainly looks like Steve Mason may be in play before the trade deadline. Neuvirth has struggled with injuries this season and is 10-9-1 with a 2.90 GAA and a .887 save percentage. He has not been a great fantasy netminder this season but had a 2.27 GAA and a .924 save percentage last season.
Mar 1 - 1:01 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly engaged in contract talks with Michal Neuvirth.

Neuvirth is in his final season of his two-year, $3.25 million deal, so he can become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has a 2.90 GAA and .887 save percentage in 24 contests this season, so even if he does re-sign with the Flyers, he might not end up serving as their starting goaltender in 2017-18.
Mar 1 - 7:06 AM

Michal Neuvirth blocked 25 of 29 shots in the 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh in the final Stadium Series game of the season on Saturday night.

Sidney Crosby drew first blood against Neuvirth, scoring midway through the first period. The second goal to make it past Neuvirth came on a Pittsburgh power-play during the second. Neuvirth let in two additional goals in the third leading to the loss. He faced 29 shots and had a save percentage of .862, which is lower than his season average of .888. This was his second loss in a row. He dropped a 4-1 game to the Capitals Wednesday night when he also allowed four goals on 29 shots.
Feb 25 - 11:31 PM

Michal Neuvirth will start for Philadelphia on Saturday.

The Flyers will play against Pittsburgh at Heinz Field in a Stadium Series game. Neuvirth has a 2.78 GAA and .890 save percentage in 22 contests this season.
Feb 23 - 1:22 PM

Michal Neuvirth allowed four goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

It was another tough night for the Flyers goalie, as he's now dropped three of his last four games. Neuvirth has allowed 12 goals in his last three outings, which means we could see more of Steve Mason in the near future. Neuvirth has a 10-8-1 record with a 2.84 goals-against-average and a .888 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 11:16 PM

Michal Neuvirth will be between the pipes on Wednesday against Washington.

This will be his fifth straight start even though he hasn't played particularly well in his previous four outings. He has a 2-2-0 record during that span and he has blocked 80 of the 91 shots he has faced.
Feb 22 - 3:41 PM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 28 of 30 shots on Sunday and hung on to beat Vancouver 3-2.

Neuvirth snapped a two-game losing streak and rebounded from a six-goal outing against Edmonton last week. He improves to 10-7-1 this season with a 2.78 goals against average and an .890 save percentage.
Feb 20 - 1:10 AM

Michal Neuvirth will tend the net on Sunday against the Canucks.

He blanked the Canucks earlier in the season on just 14 shots. Since the start of the 2017 portion of the calendar Neuvirth is 5-5-1 with just 24 goals against in 12 starts.
Feb 19 - 3:26 PM

Michal Neuvirth was shelled for six goals on 25 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Oilers on Thursday.

He didn't get a lot of help from teammates in this ugly road loss. He's started three straight games for the Flyers and even on back-to-back nights with game in Calgary on Wednesday. The Flyers are struggling with losses in five of their last six games. It will be interesting see how they distribute the starts the rest of the way.
