But it didn't take long for the referees to kibosh the moment, forcing the Flyers to put Stolarz back in. Ironically, Neuvirth was the goaltender for the Capitals in that game.
A full update on Michael Neuvirth's condition will be released on Sunday, the Philadelphia Flyers announced after the game. He was recalled Saturday morning.
The Bloomsburg native was informed he would be needed as the Flyers' emergency goalie two hours before Saturday's game against the Devils, with starter Steve Mason ill. Apparently, he was even more sick than Neuvirth. Lehigh Valley has a game at Hershey at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday. "He got out on the ice for a second, anyway".
Eric Semborski, who appeared as the emergency backup for the Chicago Blackhawks earlier this season, was called to the stadium as the fourth goaltender in the event that Stolarz was unable to play.
It was a scary scene in Philadelphia as Michal Neuvirth collapsed untouched in goal at the 7:37 mark of the first period.
The outcome ended the Hurricanes' franchise-record 13 game point streak (9-0-4) and left them six points behind Boston for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Confernce.

Strange sensation for Swansea's Carroll ahead of Spurs game
Spurs go into the game on the back of four consecutive wins in the Premier League, giving them real hopes of a top two finish. They can win or lose but it won't put pressure on them.
And here's what the Flyers bench looked like as it happened. The teams, who play again Tuesday at Prudential Center, combined for 82 penalty minutes.
Neuvirth collapsed about a minute after Brayden Schenn opened the scoring with his 24th goal of the season. He did allow one to get by, but that Andy Greene shot that bounced off Claude Giroux and rebounded past Stolarz was waved off when a review revealed the Devils were off-side.
Cory Schneider stopped 38 shots for the Devils, who lost their sixth straight game.
The Flyers say he has an "upper-body injury". He had smoked Devils forward John Quenneville with a hit and Devils defenseman Dalton Prout didn't like it and hit Gudas in the head.
Having been outscored by the Devils 14-3 this season, the Flyers were in a foul mood and they moved to get retribution quickly. Jordan Weal had scored on the power play, his eighth of the season, midway through the second frame. Stolarz played well being very cold, too. Cam Talbot finished with 16 saves. The goalie came far out of the crease, but his clearing pass from the right circle caromed off the boards directly to Krejci, who fired the puck into the empty net.
