Neuvirth was not on the ice Monday and did not make the trip to Montreal, reports the Toronto Sun.

Neuvirth already missed time last week due to an undisclosed issue. All coach Mike Babcock would say post-practice Monday was, "Neuvy was not feeling up to it so he's not going today." The goaltender has a history of injuries, so this unknown problem looks to be muddying the picture for the Leafs' backup role. Michael Hutchinson may have the inside track but has been wobbly so far in the preseason (five goals on 34 shots).
