News: Neuvirth stopped just 16 shots in Friday's 6-4 loss to Toronto. Impact: How do you say "laid an egg" in Czech? Neuvirth is fighting for the No. 1 job in Buffalo but allowed six goals on just 22 shots in the loss. This, compared to the competition, Jhonas Enroth, who posted a 2-0 shutout in his preseason start. The Sabres defense wasn't flawless but Neuvirth wasn't sharp either, allowing several soft goals during the game. He also didn't look particularly quick or fast, compared to his normal level of play, and you have to wonder if the hip injury suffered in March is still bugging him. Enroth is clearly ahead for the starting job right now.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth will be the Sabres' starter Friday against Toronto, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News. Impact: Neuvirth will have his work cut out for him with Jhonas Enroth posting a shutout in his preseason start. The two are in a battle for the starting job and the Sabres are dressing a veteran-heavy lineup against Toronto, so there will be no excuses for a poor showing. Neuvirth was very good for the Sabres before suffering a hip injury and is looking to continue where he left off. The Sabres are unlikely to name a starter until a few days before their season opener. As of right now, Enroth has the inside track, but a strong performance from Neuvirth at camp can certainly change that.(RotoWire, )

News: Neuvirth is set to battle Jhonas Enroth in training camp for top goaltending duties for the Sabres, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. Impact: Neuvirth, who was acquired by the Capitals at the trade deadline last season, only appeared in two games with his new squad before a hip injury ended his season. He's now fully recovered from the issue, and should see a roughly even workload with Enroth in training camp while the coaching staff looks to proclaim a victor. Both goalies have similar career numbers that would seem to confer neither an advantage, but Enroth's greater longevity in the organization probably makes him the early frontrunner. Even so, Neuvirth shouldn't be written off, particularly because of his familiarity with new goalie coach Arturs Irbe. Under Irbe's watch in Washington in 2010-11, Neuvirth enjoyed the best season of his career, going 27-12-4 with a 2.45 GAA and .914 save percentage. Don't expect the Sabres to announce their No. 1 netminder until late in training camp, with the team possibly waiting up until the morning skate of their Oct. 9 regular season opener against Columbus.(RotoWire, )
