    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Set for backup duty Thursday

    Neuvirth (lower body) will be available as the backup to Steve Mason on Thursday night against the visiting Sabres, CSN's Tim Panaccio reports. Neuvirth will be on hand for the first time since sustaining the lower-body injury in practice Feb. 1. In an apparent attempt to ease him back into the fold, Neuvy will watch Steve Mason make his sixth consecutive start Thursday. He's a fine complement to Mason based on a 2.14 GAA and .933 save percentage in 21 appearances this campaign.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Participates in practice

    Neuvirth (lower body) took part in an abbreviated practice Wednesday, his first since suffering a lower-body injury Feb. 1 during a practice session, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. Neuvirth continues to work his way back from the lower-body injury that was originally dated with a 7-10 day timetable. While getting in a first practice certainly bodes well, his timing was reportedly off, and it seems likely he'll need to get a few more in before returning. He remains without a firm target date at this point, but Neuvirth probably won't be ready for the team's next game Thursday against the Sabres.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Working way back from injury

    Neuvirth (lower body) will miss his fifth contest of the season Tuesday against Anaheim, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. If an injury can ever be said to "come at the right time" then this is certainly the case for Neuvirth who was injured just as starting goalie Steve Mason returned to the lineup. In his five outings prior to being injured, the 27-year-old logged a .918 save percentage and picked up three victories. If he can get healthy, the netminder's most likely next start would be in the Flyers' upcoming Saturday and Sunday back-to-back.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Placed on IR

    Neuvirth (lower body) was placed on IR according to the NHL's official media site. Neuvirth will be out for at least the next seven to 10 days as he recovers from the injury sustained in practice Monday. The 27-year-old Czech goaltender has played decently this season, compiling a 11-6-2 record with a .933 save percentage and 2.14 GAA through 21 games. Anthony Stolarz will backup Steve Mason in Neuvirth's abscence.

    Neuvirth is dealing with a lower-body injury and will be out for 7-10 days, per Flyers general manager Ron Hextall. Neuvirth sustained the injury in practice Monday.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Beats Capitals on Wednesday

    Neuvirth stopped 27 of 30 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals on Monday. Neuvirth stood tall when it mattered in this one, handing the Caps their first loss at home since November. He's been one of the league's best backups this season and heads into the All-Star break sporting a 11-6-2 record with a 2.14 GAA and a .933 save percentage -- which happens to be the best mark in the entire league among qualified netminders. With that said, if there's any goalie that's poised to wrestle the duties away from their team's incumbent starting netminder (Steve Mason, in this case) once play resumes, it's Neuvirth.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: In goal Wednesday

    Neuvirth will be in goal for Wednesday's game against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. As a result of primary starter Steve Mason ruled out Wednesday with a lower-body injury, Neuvirth (who's dealing with a lower-body injury of his own) will receive the start. The team recalled Jason LaBarbera from AHL Las Vegas on emergency conditions Wednesday to back up Neuvirth, but he shouldn't see time between the pipes barring something unforeseen. The veteran Neuvirth has been good in the crease in limited opportunities this season, but will face an extremely tough matchup Wednesday against one of the league's best offenses in Washington.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Will be available Wednesday

    Neuvirth (lower body) will be available for Wednesday's tilt against the Capitals, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Neuvirth played the entirety of Monday's contest and was able to practice Tuesday morning, but there was still some uncertainty regarding his status after he was spotted with a noticeable limp. He'll be available Wednesday, though it remains to be seen if coach Dave Hakstol will tab him or Steve Mason as the starter.

    Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Returns to practice Tuesday

    Neuvirth (lower body) was back at practice Tuesday morning, Kyle Phillippi of CSN Philly reports. Neuvirth was able to play Monday's game against the Bruins in full, but reportedly was "spotted with a pronounced limp" afterward. His return to practice is an encouraging sign, though it's too early to tell if he will be available for Wednesday's road match with the Capitals.
