Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth picked up his fifth win of the season.
Insight: He defeated Columbus on Tuesday night by stopping 45-of-47 shots on goal. This was arguably Neuvirth's best game of the season, but he still should be kept on the waiver wire, with a 5-16-3 record.
 
2/22/2015 9:06:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth made 37 saves in the shootout loss to the Predators on Sunday.
Insight: Neuvirth also made two nice saves in the shootout, but Filip Forsberg beat him in the fourth round to lift Nashville over Buffalo. Neuvirth is 4-17-2 this season with a GAA over 3.00, so hopefully there aren't too many fantasy owners out there counting on his production.
 
2/19/2015 11:13:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth made 36 saves in the, 3-2, shootout victory over the Flyers on Thursday.
Insight: One of the two goals Neuvirth allowed was on the power play. He allowed one shootout goal on four attempts. Despite the good game, he still isnt' fantasy relevant with a record of 4-15-2 this season.
 
1/13/2015 9:49:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth allowed three goals on 30 shots in a loss on Tuesday.
Insight: Neuvirth posted an even .900 save percentage in the game. It was his 12th loss of the season as Neuvirth has one of the worst records in the league at 3-12-1.
 
1/9/2015 10:15:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth faced 47 shots on goal during Friday's loss to the Lightning.
Insight: He made 45 saves, but it was not enough. Neuvirth will continue to be the backup in Buffalo, and is now 3-11-1 on the season.
 
12/16/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth allowed five goals on 36 shots during Tuesday's loss to the Jets.
Insight: Neuvirth should be owned anywhere, as he is now 3-7-1 on the season.
 
12/7/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth allowed three goals on 37 shots during Saturday's loss to the Panthers.
Insight: Neuvirth should remain on the waiver wire, as he is 3-6-1 with a 2.87 GAA and.920 save percentage. He continues to be the backup in Buffalo.
 
11/5/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth allowed just one goal on 32 shots against the Candiens on Wednesday.
Insight: Neuvirth, however, yielded two goals in the shootout as Buffalo lost, 2-1. Neuvirth is now 2-3-1 on the season.
 
10/28/2014 10:29:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth allowed four goals on 37 shots against the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Insight: It was just a sad performance overall from Buffalo, who only mustered 10 shots on net. Neuvirth can't be counted on in fantasy if his team is not going to support him at all.
 
10/25/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth earned his first win of the season, by defeating the Sharks on Saturday.
Insight: He stopped 29-of-30 shots, and played extremely well. However, Neuvirth is cemented in as Buffalo's backup goalie, moving forward.
 
10/13/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth faced 44 shots during Monday's loss to Anaheim.
Insight: He let up five goals on the flurry of shots he faced. Neuvirth is now 0-3-0 on the season, and is not a recommended option.
 
3/18/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth (lower body) will miss Tuesday's game against the Flames, according to Paul Hamilton of wgr550.com.
Insight: Neuvirth and Jhonas Enroth are both out, so Nathan Lieuwen (2.34 GAA, .922 SV% in AHL) will get his first NHL start.
 
3/16/2014 8:09:00 PM
Description: Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth is out with a lower-body injury, according to John Vogl of the Buffalo News.
Insight: Neuvirth has faced 98 shots in his first two starts with the Sabres and made 93 saves, a .949 SV%. Buffalo acquired him from Washington for Jaroslav Halak at the trade deadline.
 
3/8/2014 4:57:00 PM
Description: In his first appearance with the Sabres, Michal Neuvirth made 42 saves on 44 shots in a 2-0 loss at Florida Friday night.
Insight: Neuvirth and Jhonas Enroth will probably split starts for Buffalo the rest of the season. Neither player is good enough to overcome the Sabres' pitiful defense, Friday's results aside.
 
11/29/2013 10:38:00 AM
Description: Capitals backup goaltender Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the start Friday against Montreal, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post.
Insight: Neuvirth has made seven appearances behind Braden Holtby this season and is 2-3-1 with a 2.83 GAA and a .912 SV%. He has little fantasy value.
 
11/9/2013 12:58:00 PM
Description: Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the nod Saturday against the Coyotes, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post.
Insight: Neuvirth has made five appearances (three starts) behind Braden Holtby this season and is 2-2-0 with a 2.79 GAA and a .913 SV%. He has no fantasy value.
 
10/28/2013 6:41:00 PM
Description: Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth will start Monday at Vancouver.
Insight: Starter Braden Holtby was pulled from Saturday's game after allowing three goals in the first 13 minutes, but he's mostly settled down after a terrible start. Neuvirth is 1-1-0 with a 3.08 GAA and an .893 SV% in three games, so the team is in no hurry to make a change in net.
 
10/12/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth will start Saturday against the 4-0 Avalanche.
Insight: Even though Braden Holtby has allowed 13 goals in his first four games and has a 4.04 GAA and an .873 SV%, the Caps have refrained from using Neuvirth since he relieved Holtby on Oct. 3. This will be his first start of the season.
 
4/25/2013 1:51:00 PM
Description: Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth will start Thursday's game against the Senators.
Insight: The Caps already have clinched the Southeast Division and the No. 3 seed in the East, so they can rest Braden Holtby. Neuvirth has a 2.81 GAA in 12 appearances this season.
 
3/16/2013 12:33:00 PM
Description: Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth will start in Washington's game against Boston Saturday afternoon, according to the Washington Times.
Insight: The Capitals started the season giving both Neuvirth and Braden Holtby an even share of the work, but Holtby has been getting most of it of late. Neuvirth is 2-4-1 this season with a 2.86 GAA and a .900 save percentage.
