Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: In goal Saturday

Neuvirth will defend the home net Saturday against the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Neuvirth, who had been battling a groin injury, returned to the lineup Thursday against the Bruins, albeit in a backup capacity. The veteran netminder posted a 2.60 GAA and a .915 save percentage while splitting time with Brian Elliott a season ago and will look to get his 2018-19 campaign off to a good start against an Islanders club averaging 2.60 goals per game over four road contests.
