Former Capitals and Hershey Bears goaltender Michal Neuvirth made his first start for rival Philadelphia last night against the Florida Panthers, two nights after playing in relief of Steve Mason who let in four goals in 6:46 against Florida (which was a Panthers record for fastest four goals scored at the start of a game). Neuvirth, who still has “feelings” for the Caps, just set his own record last night.
According to the NHL, Neuvirth became the fifth goaltender in Flyers’ history to earn a shutout in his first start with the team. He made 31 stops in Phliadelphia’s 1-0 win. It was also Neuvy’s first shutout since the Dale Hunter era.

Nice job, Neuvy! And an even better job with this super awkward bio photo.
But as long as you’re wearing the colours of a rival team… Let’s not let this happen again (unless it’s against the Penguins).
