Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the start in Thursday's game against the Predators.

He's coming off a 40-save performance in a 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Neuvirth has a 1-1-0 record with a 1.52 goals-against-average and a .956 save percentage this season.

Michal Neuvirth stopped 40 of 41 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

Neuvirth was fantastic tonight, as he came up with several big saves throughout the game. The victory over the Panthers was his first of the 2017-18 season. Neuvirth now owns a 1-1-0 record with a 1.52 goals-against-average and a .956 save percentage. Brian Elliott is still the starting goalie in Philadelphia, but Neuvirth can steal some starts away from him with more performances like this one. The problem with Neuvirth has always been consistency.

Michal Neuvirth will make his second start of the season against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Neuvirth allowed two goals on 27 shots in a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in his only other start this season. In 17 career games against the Panthers, Neuvirth is 4-7-2. The seven regulation losses are the most he's had against any team he's faced in his National Hockey League career. We'd suggest avoiding Neuvirth for this matchup.

Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the start in goal on Tuesday versus Nashville.

Neuvirth gave up two goals in his first start Thursday against the Kings and it appears, at least at the beginning of the season that coach Dave Hakstol is splitting the net between Neuvirth and Brian Elliott as Elliot picked up a pair of starts on the West Coast. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Oct 9 - 8:53 AM

Michal Neuvirth made 25 saves on 27 shots in a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings Thursday night.

Neuvirth was put in goal for the Flyers' second game in two nights, taking over for his compatriot Brian Elliott. While Neuvirth only allowed two goals, his offense wasn't much help. Considering how inconsistent the Flyers' goaltending situation has been for the last few years, proceed with caution if you're considering taking Neuvirth off waivers.
Oct 6 - 1:30 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that Michal Neuvirth will start in goal against the Los Angeles Kings.

With the Flyers on the back half of a back-to-back, they will turn to Neuvirth. In five career games against the Kings, he has a 1-2-1 record with a 1.85 goals against average and .925 save percentage. The Flyers goaltending situation has been a headache for the past few seasons and we do not recommend picking up Neuvirth.
Oct 5 - 7:44 PM

Michal Neuvirth could be the player that Vegas plucks off Philadelphia's roster in the expansion draft.

Neuvirth was a member of the Capitals when new Vegas GM George McPhee was there and that familiarity could get him selected. If he gets taken then the Flyers may circle back to pending UFA netminder Steve Mason. The Flyers surprisingly chose to protect Anthony Stolarz instead of Neuvirth.
Jun 20 - 11:55 AM

Flyers GM Ron Hextall still has confidence in Michal Neuvirth.

"I really believe [he] is going to come back focused," Hextall said. "He was really good for us last year. This year, he was kind of reflective of our team. He was inconsistent. He had some good times and some times that weren't very good. I expect [him] to come back and be a really good player for us. In saying that, we need two guys." Neuvirth got a two-year contract extension in March and Steve Mason could be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Michal Neuvirth suffered a concussion when he collapsed on the ice last week.

It was a really scary moment, as Neuvirth collapsed in front of his own net with nobody around him.
Apr 12 - 12:26 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers are saying that Michal Neuvirth has an upper-body injury.

Neuvirth collapsed during a faceoff on Saturday and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was hospitalized, but was released Sunday afternoon. We don't have all the details about what happened and obviously the term upper-body injury doesn't reveal much. It was previously noted that his collapse might have been the result of a sinus infection, but it's not clear if that's truly the cause. The Flyers are also saying that he's day-to-day.
Apr 6 - 11:44 AM

Michal Neuvirth has been suffering from sinus trouble of late and that may have been the reason for his collapse on Saturday.

It was a scary moment in the Flyers-Devils game Saturday as Neuvirth collapsed during a faceoff. He was on the ice for a while before he was taken off in a stretcher. The good news is that he seems fine now and he likely will be re-evaluated on Monday. Stay tuned.
Apr 3 - 9:41 AM

Michal Neuvirth was released from Pennsylvania Hospital on Sunday afternoon, and is home resting.

Fortunately, his testing came back normal and will receive a follow-up on Monday. It would seem things will be okay for the netminder. Which is all that really matters.
Apr 2 - 1:33 PM

Michal Neuvirth remained at Pennsylvania Hospital overnight after collapsing during Saturday's game.

Neuvirth regained consciousness and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. It sounds like he may have been battling an illness. "I don't want to speculate -- he's had a little bit of a chest cold, there's been a few things going around, there has been all winter," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "We sent him over to the hospital for precautionary reasons, everything so far has been good, things are positive." Even if Neuvirth is released from the hospital, he won't join the Flyers on their final road trip of the season. The Flyers are playing the Rangers in New York on Sunday and being hosted by New Jersey on Tuesday.
Apr 2 - 10:17 AM

During a stoppage of play during the first period in the Flyers vs. Devils game Saturday night, Michal Neuvirth collapsed and was attended to by trainers.

Neuvirth regained consciousness and was stretchered from the ice. He collapsed after 7:37 of ice time. No further details were immediately available, so stayed tuned for updates.
