Japers' Rink Radio Episode 4: Talking Goalies

Braden Holtby tied the NHL record for wins in a single season by a goaltender but is he worthy of the Veizna? First off, we are now on iTunes, so listening to us just got a lot easier! As for this episode, we're joined by goalie guru, Hockey Graphs writer and creator of Adjusted Goals Saved Above Average (adjGSAA), Nick Mercadante. We spend the first part of the episode focusing on Braden Holtby, Matt Murray and Michal Neuvirth, and later try to answer one of hockey's great questions: are the Capitals always running into "hot goalies" or are they doing something to boost the save...

2015-16 Flyers season review: Has Michal Neuvirth pushed himself into the long-term goalie discussion?

Signed on to back up Steve Mason, Michal Neuvirth had a very strong regular season that he followed up with an unreal playoff run. Has he earned a longer look from the team in net? After Ray Emery limped his way to the finish line in 2014-15, it was clear that the Flyers were going to look for an alternative to back up or even team up with Steve Mason in net for this season. Enter Michal Neuvirth, who had played in parts of seven NHL seasons before this one but has been a tandem or backup goalie for most of his career. And that was the expectation for him here -- that he'd back up Steve...
