Sabres' Enroth, Neuvirth have big shoes to fill in Buffalo net

  Defenseman Tyler Myers immediately sensed something was different in the Buffalo Sabres' locker room when he arrived for the start of training camp. The welcome sight of Ryan Miller - with his ever-unshaven face, steely eyed stare and sometimes brooding presence - was missing from his familiar perch in front of the oversized goalie stall at the far end of the room.

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. 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...

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.

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...

The post Michal Neuvirth robs Gustav Nyquist appeared first on Diehardsport.

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...

Tuesday morning, like every practice day for the past three weeks, the Washington Capitals’ goaltenders took the ice a half hour before the rest of their teammates. With three healthy goalies on the roster but only two nets on the ice, an early start is how they ensure they satisfy their individual objectives and receive enough reps as they rotate through drills.

Whoever that goalie is becomes the next big thing in net for the Caps.  Once the league has had time...
