Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Michal Neuvirth knows a thing or two about his team’s first-round opponent in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Neuvirth was drafted by the Washington Capitals in 2006 and was a member of their organization until 2014. He knows how badly the Capitals are trying to get over the hump and win what has been an elusive championship.
One could make the case expectations never have been higher in Washington after winning the Presidents’ Trophy with 120 points. But Neuvirth likes the Flyers’ chances if they simply play their game.
