News: Neuvirth (lower body) practiced with the team Monday morning, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. Impact: Neuvirth's injury was feared to be serious initially, so his presence at practice represents a good sign. It appears he could be returning in the near future, but there isn't a set date for when it will occur.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Ted Nolan indicated that the Sabres expected Neuvirth to miss days rather than weeks due to the lower-body injury he suffered Tuesday night against the Sharks. Impact: Neuvirth has been ruled out for both of the Sabres' games over the weekend, but it's possible Friday's home contest will be postponed in any case due to the ongoing snow emergency in the Buffalo area. At any rate, having Neuvirth miss only a few contests would amount to great news for the Sabres, as it was feared the goalie may have sustained a long-term injury when he suffered an apparent groin tweak in Tuesday's win. Jhonas Enroth will serve as the top netminder for the Sabres in the interim, but unless he plays exceedingly well, Neuvirth figures to remain option 1A for the team once he returns to full health.(RotoWire, )

News: Tuesday's game, in which Neuvirth is scheduled to start against San Jose's Troy Grosenick, will be played as planned even though Buffalo is in the middle of a nasty snowstorm, The Buffalo News reports. Impact: The crowd might be down a bit given the weather, but based on the way the Sabres have been playing this season maybe that will give the good people of Buffalo a little less stress than they're already having this week. We will note the Sharks are one of the few teams Buffalo has had success against lately, beating them the last seven times. That said, San Jose is a heavy favorite against Buffalo, as is pretty much any other team as the Sabres work through a major rebuild. The two teams are pushing to get this game in, as the remaining schedules of the two franchises on opposite coasts aren't conducive to a makeup contest.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth is out after sustaining a lower body injury in the first period of a game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. Impact: Neuvirth stopped all 10 shots he faced in finishing the period, before being replaced by backup Jhonas Enroth. The Sabres did not announce the severity of the injury to Neuvirth, who entered the game with a team-best 3-5-1 record. Neuvirth missed the final 16 games of last season with a hip injury.

News: Neuvirth exited Tuesday's game against the Sharks following the first period with a lower-body injury, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. Impact: Neuvirth was hurt after Tyler Ennis crashed into his own goalie while trying to stop a 2-on-1 rush by the Sharks. The goal was disallowed, but the Sabres lost their starting goalie to the injury, which at first glance, looks like it could be a groin issue. It's also worth nothing that Neuvirth is coming off a hip injury that cost him significant action the previous season. Jhonas Enroth played the rest of the game and came away with the win. The Sabres figure to determine a timetable for Neuvirth in the coming days, but so long as he remains out, Enroth will take over starting duties, with either Nathan Lieuwen or Andrey Makarov acting as his backup.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth will start in net Tuesday against the Sharks. Impact: The netminder was excellent last time out, stopping 32 of the 34 shots he faced in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs. With Tuesday's start, Neuvirth and Enroth will both have 10 appearances on the season as they continue to battle for the starting gig. The Sabres have defeated the Sharks in seven consecutive showdowns and another strong performance will certainly give Neuvirth the edge. The hard part is staying at the top, however, as Enroth will undoubtedly make a push throughout the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth made 32 saves in a 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night. Impact: He continues to see a lot of pucks, so his save percentage is actually solid this season. But he has just three wins and a bloated GAA. Surely you have better options.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs. Impact: Neuvirth will look to get back on track after being lit up for six goals on 29 shots his last time out, but that will not be easy against a Toronto squad that sits third in the NHL with 3.31 goals per game.(RotoWire, )
