Michal Neuvirth was back on the ice Saturday morning.

Neuvirth felt good after Friday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh in Game 5 in his first start since his return from a lower-body injury. "I think I'm close (to 100 percent). The wraparound goal, gotta be better on that," said Neuvirth. "That's why I went on the ice. Tried to fix those little things." He should be back in goal for the Flyers on Sunday for Game 6.

We would be shocked if the Flyers did not start Michal Neuvirth Sunday afternoon in Game 6 against the Penguins.

Brian Elliott had struggled in the first four games of the series allowing 14 goals on 83 shots so Philly coach Dave Hakstol turned to Neuvirth whom he thought looked sharp in practice. Neuvirth delivered with a 30-save victory. If you have daily transactions in your playoff pool, make sure Neuvirth is active.

Michal Neuvirth stopped 30 of 32 shots in Game 5 on Friday night in a 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

Neuvirth supplanted Brian Elliott for this elimination game and he helped the Flyers force a Game 6 with a solid performance. He had a key save at point blank range late in the third period against Sidney Crosby. Neuvirth should be back between the pipes for Game 6 on Sunday afternoon.

Michal Neuvirth will get the start in Game 5 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Brian Elliott started the first four games of the series, but the Flyers are going in a different direction now that they're down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. The 30-year-old had a 9-7-3 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage during the regular season.
Apr 20 - 6:32 PM

Michal Neuvirth allowed two goals on 13 shots in Wednesday's 5-0 Game 4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Neuvirth replaced starter Brian Elliott after the latter allowed three goals on 17 shots through a little more than 28 minutes of play. Considering both goaltenders struggled tonight, the Flyers have a real question mark in goal heading back to Pittsburgh for Friday's Game 5 do-or-die game.
Apr 18 - 9:45 PM

Michal Neuvirth will suit up as Brian Elliott's backup goalie in Game 4 against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Neuvirth had been dealing with a lower-body injury since late March, but he's ready to go if something happens to Elliott.
Apr 18 - 6:40 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) is listed as day-to-day.

Neuvirth was injured in his return to the lineup Wednesday night. The Flyers have brought back Alex Lyon to help out in the crease.
Mar 31 - 11:41 AM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) made the start Wednesday at Colorado after being activated from injured reserve earlier in the day, but he left with a lower-body injury and will be examined Thursday.

Neuvirth stopped 10 of the 11 shots he faced in 28:23 before heading to the dressing room, but he was able to pick up the victory. It might be his last this season, as there is doubt whether he'll be able to return now. Alex Lyon, who was shuttled to Lehigh Valley of the AHL earlier in the day, is expected to return to serve as backup to Petr Mrazek.
Mar 29 - 12:47 AM

Michal Neuvirth will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Neuvirth was activated off injured reserve earlier today. He has an 8-7-3 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season. His last appearance came on Feb. 18.
Mar 28 - 9:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

It's not yet known if Neuvirth will start Wednesday night, but it wouldn't be surprising. He last played on Feb. 18. With the Flyers fighting to secure their playoff spot, they could really use a boost from Neuvirth's return. Petr Mrazek, who had been acquired to help fill the void, hasn't been what the Flyers were hoping for.
Mar 28 - 5:17 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) might be able to return on Wednesday.

If Neuvirth does start Wednesday night, it would be his first game since Feb. 18. It would also be a nice boost for the Flyers to get him back because Petr Mrazek has struggled in the crease since the Flyers acquired him to fill in as a de facto starter.
Mar 28 - 12:05 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) has been practicing with the Flyers and could return to action shortly.

The Flyers took Neuvirth on this road trip and he has participated in full practices. Neuvirth has been out since February 18 and is on track to return as his timeline then was four-six weeks. The Flyers have been struggling once again in net as Petr Mrazek has been bad lately and Alex Lyon is only a rookie. Neuvirth is 8-7-3 with a 2.61 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Mar 21 - 9:47 AM

Goaltender Michal Neuvirth (lower body) is expected to start skating this week.

Neuvirth was injured on February 18 against the Rangers. He was expected to be out four-six weeks at the time. "Neuvy’s a little bit ahead of probably where we thought," GM Ron Hextall said on the weekend. Perhaps the netminder could return in the next seven-ten days. He is 8-7-3 this season.
Mar 12 - 8:52 AM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.

Neuvirth was injured on Feb. 18 against the New York Rangers. The Flyers acquired Petr Mrazek from Detroit on Monday night because Brian Elliott is also out with a long-term injury.
