Varlamov, a likely Finalist for the Vezina who could become not only the second straight Russian to win it, but the second straight Russian to win it after being traded by...

Cautious Optimism On Deadline Day

The Man found a way, as he is wont to do. (Sportsnet) Wednesday afternoon, the Washington Capitals acquired goaltender Jaroslav Halak and a third round pick for Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Rusty Klesla, who had been acquired Tuesday night as part of the Martin Erat trade. As predicted, reaction to the trade was swift and polarized. Upon the announcement of the move, I must...

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...

Tlusty, Semin help Hurricanes push past Sabres for 4-2 win

It would have been easy for the Carolina Hurricanes to have gotten frustrated Thursday at PNC Arena. For more than 50 minutes, they kept firing shots at Buffalo Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth. For more than 50 minutes, only Jeff Skinner got a shot past him. But the Canes kept pushing, kept attacking, kept shooting. By game’s end, Carolina had a 4-2 victory as the Hurricanes scored...

Klesla won't join Sabres after trade

Defenseman Rostislav Klesla said Saturday he will not join the Buffalo Sabres, who acquired him in a trade with the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. The trade, which also sent goaltender Michal Neuvirth to Buffalo and goaltender Jaroslav Halak and a draft pick to Washington, came one day after the Capitals had acquired Klesla from the Phoenix Coyotes. Klesla had been scheduled...

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. Klesla is likely more of a salary dump than anything else as he will start in Rochester and while Murray didn’t rule out bringing him up, said they didn’t...

Kevin Freiheit: Jersey numbers wreaking havoc

For 11 seasons, Ryan Miller wore #30 as a goaltender. That's not the number he would have liked, though. While he's no longer playing for Buffalo, I'm discussing him now because newly acquired goaltender Michal Neuvirth also wears #30. And if you haven't heard by now, Neuvirth is planning to keep the #30 and the Sabres have said that is acceptable. A lot of...

Goodbye, Neuvy

It's always a bittersweet moment when a (relatively) longtime Capital leaves the team. Michal Neuvirth, who the Caps traded to Buffalo on Wednesday, is one of those players who deserves a wave goodbye and a round of applause the next time he shows up at Verizon Center.

Would it had made a difference if Michal Neuvirth played in the 2011 NHL playoffs?

It wouldn’t have made one scintilla of difference had Michael Neuvirth had been the one tending goal in the playoffs in 2011—gaudy regular season record or not. There are at least two reasons for that–one of which you’ve mentioned in previous articles: The FIRST reason is the Capitals’ deplorable defense in their own end and in neutral ice. They hang their goalies out to...

What if Neuvirth Played in 2011 Playoffs?

Now that Michal Neuvirth, once again, seems to be the Caps goalie du jour, I looked at a blog post I wrote in 2011 because I remember writing about him as the Caps headed to the playoffs under then Coach Bruce Boudreau. 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...

Michal Neuvirth makes ridiculous glove save on Frans Nielsen

Michal Neuvirth was just an afterthought for most of November, January, and all of December. However, over the Capitals’ last three game he’s taken control the starting job over Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer. Though he picked up the loss on Tuesday night, he only allowed one goal and made 27 saves, one of which was in style. This acrobatic windmill save may very well be...
