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.
It was kind of touching. I didn't know really what to expect. I'm very appreciative and thankful for the people that supported me in my time here ... as I said, we'll move back to the area at some point in our life.
