Michal Neuvirth stopped 29 of the 31 shots he faced as the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in overtime on Thursday night.

With number 88 on his shoulder in honor of Eric Lindros, whose number was retired earlier in the night, Neuvirth made a key stop on Auston Matthews in overtime that led to Sean Couturier's goal 18 seconds into the extra frame. It was an excellent performance from the Flyers' netminder. Neuvirth improves to 4-5-1 on the season with a 2.35 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage. Based on this game's performance and his team's reaction, he may just get another start ahead of the struggling Brian Elliott next game.

Michal Neuvirth (leg) practiced with the Flyers on Tuesday.

There's a good chance that Neuvirth will be available to serve as Brian Elliott's backup Wednesday night. "Conditioning's good, I've been moving well," Neuvirth said.

Assuming Neuvirth's healthy, he'll likely start in one of the Flyers' back-to-back contests on Friday and Saturday.
