Latest Michal Neuvirth Items
For most of the season, Washington Capitals players expressed nothing but confidence in both goaltenders, Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth. When Braden Holtby got called up, there was a belief in all three goaltenders.
Michal Neuvirth was prepared last week when Tomas Vokoun left the Washington Capitals' game in Boston. Vokoun had been battling a groin injury, and Neuvirth quickly realized this was his net.
All goaltenders know that in a shootout, the cardinal rule is to force the shooter to make the first move. Stay in position and don't get fooled. Goalies facing Washington Capitals forward Matt Hendricks in the shootout don't seem to be able to follow that.
It's uncertain how long veteran goaltender Tomas Vokoun will be out after apparently aggravating a groin injury Thursday. But with the end of the regular season just a little over a week away, it's likely the Washington Capitals will have to go through the home stretch with Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby between the pipes.
This is just about the last thing the Washington Capitals needed. Goaltender Tomas Vokoun shook his head as he skated to the bench, apparently aggravating a groin injury that has lingered for almost a month.
Tomas Vokoun sounded like a goaltender ready and willing to start in yet another "biggest game of the season" for the Washington Capitals on Thursday night at Boston.
Tomas Vokoun is fond of saying that it's hard for the Washington Capitals to win when they don't score goals. Scoring at least one is vital; "it's pretty simple math," he stated after a shutout loss in January.
It was over in 32 seconds.
When young Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov got turned inside out by Toronto Maple Leafs All-Star Phil Kessel, it would have been hard to blame Michal Neuvirth for letting in a goal. One-on-one, he instead made a big stop.
