During the second period of the Capitals-Leafs game, Michal Neuvirth denied Toronto’s Carl Gunnarsson with a flashy glove save that deserves a spot on this week’s highlight reel. Video is below the jump.
After a near shutout against Montreal, Neuvirth (.910 Sv%, 2.91 GAA) was outstanding in the second night of his back-to-back starts, making 28 saves in the Capitals 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Heading into what may be a very exciting trade deadline on Monday, the junior Czech goalie is proving himself to be a very valuable asset.
