Sabres goalie Neuvirth hurt, prospect Lieuwen summoned

The Buffalo Sabres announced that they have summoned Nathan Lieuwen on an emergency basis. Michal Neuvirth is dealing with a lower-body injury and won’t be available for tonight’s game against Montreal. Given that Jhonas Enroth played between the pipes on Saturday, there’s at least a slim chance that Lieuwen will make his NHL debut. It’s slim because Lieuwen played on Friday...

Q&A about Rusty Klesla and Michal Neuvirth

Follow Chris on Twitter One of the final moves Tim Murray made yesterday was shipping Jaroslav Halak and a third round pick in 2015 to Washington in exchange for defenseman Rusty Klesla and goaltender Michal Neuvirth.

What if Neuvirth Played in 2011 Playoffs?

Here’s what I wrote. Did the Caps blow it? Hockey goalies are notoriously mental to begin with — see Braden Holtby’s pre-game routine or Ilya Bryzgalov’s...

Capitals 3, Maple Leafs 2: Neuvirth stops 32 shots

Michal Neuvirth skated out to defend the home net at Verizon Center on Friday night as anxious as he has ever been in his NHL career. It had been seven weeks since he last appeared in a game, a layoff brought about first by injury and then falling down the depth chart, and the Washington Capitals goaltender wanted to make sure he had a strong outing. But Neuvirth, whose most dominant...

Michal Neuvirth latest Capital to ask for trade

For the third time this season, a member of the Washington Capitals (or said player's agent) has asked to move on from the franchise. This time it is goaltender Michal Neuvirth.
