Latest Michal Neuvirth Items
At the moment, there's absolutely no goaltending controversy for the Washington Capitals. But it's not playoff darling Braden Holtby who grabbed a hold of the starting job.
Sometimes it's hard to forget about a goaltender's night. A few big saves but a couple of goals, and there are bigger problems to worry about.
Goaltender Michal Neuvirth was smiling while sitting at his locker, almost for the first time since returning to North America. First he got the flu, then he watched as Braden Holtby started the first two games of the Washington Capitals' season.
If Braden Holtby hasn't done enough to lock down the No. 1 goaltender job and lock it down hard, one can only wonder what people were watching the last time hockey was actually played.
Michal Neuvirth wants to be the No. 1 goaltender for the Washington Capitals. He made it clear at the end of last season that he'd try to beat out playoff starter Braden Holtby.
It's August and the Washington Capitals have been quiet since hiring Tim Hunter as assistant coach and Brett Leonhardt as video coach. But that didn't stop Michal Neuvirth from making some August news with comments he gave to the Czech website iSport.cz.
Michal Neuvirth turned aside shots in practice and looked to be showing few ill-effects from a lower-body injury suffered in the final week of the regular season. What's not obvious is how the Washington Capitals goaltender is feeling.
Previewing the Caps-Bruins first-round series.
It would have been hard to expect at the start of the season, or at any point in recent months, that the Washington Capitals' goaltending tandem heading into the Stanley Cup playoffs would be Braden Holtby and Dany Sabourin.
