Michal Neuvirth will be between the pipes for Buffalo for Tuesday night's game in Toronto.

The move isn't surprising after Neuvirth made 29 stops in a 2-1 win over San Jose on Saturday.
Oct 28 - 7:50 AM

While the San Jose Sharks' effort was uneven on Saturday, Michal Neuvirth deserves a lot of credit for the Buffalo Sabres' shocking 2-1 win.

Neuvirth stopped 29 out of 30 shots, including 14 out of 15 in the third period. The 26-year-old has faced 107 shots in three games so far, acquitting himself pretty well. This is his first win for Buffalo in 2014-15, and if he keeps this up, he might take quite a few starts from Jhonas Enroth.

Updating an earlier item, it looks as if Michal Neuvirth will get the start against San Jose Saturday afternoon.

It was thought that Jhomas Enroth would get the call but that is obviously no longer the case. The game starts at 4:00 pm ET, so make sure you adjust your goaltending rotation accordingly.

Michal Neuvirth made 25 saves on 28 shots but took the loss for Buffalo in a 4-1 Anaheim win on Wednesday.

It can't really come as a surprise that Neuvirth got no goal support as his team has now managed just one goal in the past three games. With the Sabres playing again on Thursday night, it's expected that Jhonas Enroth will get the call in the second half of the back-to-back. Neither are good options in fantasy right now.

Michal Neuvirth is expected to start Wednesday against Anaheim.

That probably means Jhonas Enroth will get the nod against Los Angeles on Thursday. Neuvirth allowed five goals on 44 shots against the Ducks in his first start of the season.
Oct 22 - 3:54 PM

Michal Neuvirth is projected to play for the Sabres this week, as the club plays three games in four nights.

Buffalo visits Anaheim and Los Angeles on Wednesday and Thursday night, respectively. The Sabres play in San Jose on Saturday. Neuvirth was between the pipes for a 5-1 loss to the Ducks on Oct. 13, but coach Ted Nolan wouldn't confirm who would start Wednesday's contest.
Oct 22 - 8:06 AM

Despite the fact that Jhonas Enroth played very well in a 1-0 loss to the Panthers Friday night, we expect Michal Neuvirth to get the start Saturday night against the Bruins.

It is a back-to-back game situation and Neuvirth played well stopping 39 shots despite losing to the Ducks on Monday.
Oct 18 - 9:33 AM

Michal Neuvirth saved 39 of 44 shots in a 5-1 loss to Anaheim on Monday.

Neuvirth kept the Sabres in this contest through two periods, but he allowed three goals on 15 shots in the third. This was his first start of the season and unfortunately he's likely to have plenty of rough games with the lowly Sabres this season.
Oct 13 - 5:52 PM

Michal Neuvirth will get his first start of the season on Monday.

Neuvirth had a 2.78 GAA and .921 save percentage in 15 games last season. He entered the 2014-15 campaign as Buffalo's backup, but he has a legitimate chance of wrestling the starting gig away from Jhonas Enroth.
Oct 13 - 1:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth had a rough time in the preseason, allowing 10 goals on 58 shots.

His 5.04 goals-against average and an .828 save percentage coupled with Jhonas Enroth's excellent showing during the exhibition schedule has seemingly settled Buffalo's goaltending competition for the start of the year. Neuvirth is likely to open as Enroth's understudy.
Oct 6 - 10:40 AM

Michal Neuvirth struggled in a 6-4 loss to the Maple Leafs Friday night.

Neuvirth allowed four goals on the first seven shots he faced, with two of them being softies. He has quickly fallen behind Jhonas Enroth in the Sabres' staring goalie battle. To his credit, Neuvirth certainly didn't mince his words when assessing his game Friday night. "I was having a tough time finding the puck tonight", said Neuvirth. "Goaltending-wise, I didn't feel good." For those hoping Neuvirth would take the staring position by the horns and run with it, this is a setback.
Sep 27 - 8:32 AM

Michal Neuvirth is glad to be reunited with Arturs Irbe in Buffalo.

He posted a 27-12-4 record with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage in 48 games as a member of the Washington Capitals under the tutelage of Irbe. "We had a great time together in Washington, and hopefully we're going to do the same here," Neuvirth said. "I trust him. I feel like he's trusted me." Neuvirth has a shot at becoming Buffalo's starting netminder this year.
Sep 22 - 10:36 AM

Michal Neuvirth's lower-body injury was a hip issue.

Sabres GM Tim Murray said that Neuvirth has been seeing a specialist to help with the nagging problem. He sat out Buffalo's last 15 games of the season due to the ailment.
Apr 16 - 7:27 AM

Michal Neuvirth isn't expected to return this week.

Coach Ted Nolan said before Sunday's game that he has pretty much ruled out the possibility that Neuvirth or Jhonas Enroth will return in the Sabres' last four contests of the season. Neuvirth hasn't played since Mar. 13 because of a lower-body injury, but he looked good in a pair of losses for his new team before getting hurt.
