Washington has placed goalie Michal Neuvirth on injured reserve with a lower-body ailment, according to the Washington Post.
Neuvirth, 25, was injured during warmup for Friday’s 3-2 shootout win over Montreal. He was supposed to make the start but exited just prior to puck drop, forcing Braden Holtby into action.
Per the official roster, Michal Neuvirth (right leg) has been placed on injured reserve. #Caps
