Capitals' Neuvirth leaves with injury
Washington goaltender Michal Neuvirth left the Capitals' game against Florida on Thursday night with an apparent leg injury.

Washington goaltender Michal Neuvirth left the Capitals' game against Florida on Thursday night with an apparent leg injury.

Neuvirth was injured when Florida forward Marco Sturm fell on his leg 5:39 into the second period. He went down in his crease and stayed there before being helped to the ice and into the dressing room.

Rookie Braden Holtby replaced Neuvirth in goal.

Neuvirth had assumed the starting job a week ago when veteran Tomas Vokoun went down with a groin injury that will keep him out at least through the end of the regular season.
