Flyers' Neuvirth makes 24 saves in win against Wild

Goalie robs Minnesota's Coyle in final seconds to preserve victory

by Adam Kimelman @NHLAdamK / NHL.com Staff Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- "Unbelievable," "sick" and "disgusting" were just a few of the adjectives used to describe Michal Neuvirth's game-saving stop in the final seconds of the third period for the Philadelphia Flyers against the Minnesota Wild at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday.

Neuvirth made a spectacular lunging save on Charlie Coyle's sharp-angled shot with 2.6 seconds remaining to preserve the Flyers' 3-2 victory.

Coyle had an open look from the left side in the waning seconds and tried to shoot it into the top corner of the net. But Neuvirth dove across, and while laying on his right hip, he stretched to stop the puck with his stick. As it dropped near the goal line, he snagged it with his glove. Video review showed the puck never crossed the line.
