Flyers' Neuvirth carted off ice after collapsing in crease

Michal Neuvirth was not feeling well prior to collapsing

Michal Neuvirth got the start, but collapsed in the crease during a stoppage in play and left the arena to get to a hospital. Both Stolarz and Neuvirth would get credited with a shutout if they kept the Devils scoreless for the last ten minutes.

All tests on Neuvirth came back "normal", according to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, and it is believed Neuvirth was suffering after-effects from a severe upper respiratory infection he's been fighting for more than a week.

"We sent him over to the hospital for precautionary reasons, everything so far has been good, things are positive".

A weird day of hockey ended Saturday night for the Flyers with a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils and their two goalies ill (see Instant Replay). Neuvirth saved all six shots that he faced in the first period. Stolarz arrived late at the Wells Fargo Center, missed warmups and was still in the dressing room when the game began.

Neuvirth was playing because Philly's starting goaltender Steve Mason was already out with an injury. He owns a 2-2-0 record with a 1.42 goals against average and a.951 save percentage in five appearances this season.




Neuvirth fell down and lost conscious, while several teammates jumped in to help trainer Jim McCrossin remove him from the game. "Sometimes those colds really get to you and dehydrate you". "I was on the bus to Wilkes-Barre - I want to say around 4:15, so I had to wait for the bus to get to Wilkes-Barre, unpack my gear for the vehicle to come down", Stolarz said. "But again, it was scary stuff to see".

"It's obviously pretty scary when you see your goaltender just collapse like that", Flyers forward Chris VandeVelde said. McDonald, 32, raced past Devils defenseman Andy Greene, eluded a poke-check by Schneider, and scored his 20th career National Hockey League goal and first as a Flyer.

Colin McDonald said Neuvy was feeling ill before the game.

"I was just excited that they were actually trying to get me out there", he said. Coach Dave Hakstol challenged the play, alleging offside, and was correct.

In the second period of Saturday's feisty game, Radko Gudas left after taking a high hit from New Jersey's Dalton Prout. There had been no sign of contact with another player, and he lay motionless as Flyers medical staff attended to him.
