Backup goalie Michael Neuvirth is being loaned by the Washington Capitals to their AHL affiliate in Hershey for a conditioning program after missing time with a lower-body injury. The Capitals announced the move Thursday. Neuvirth hasn't played for the Capitals since Nov. 22. A week later, he missed a scheduled star after hurting himself when he stepped on a puck during warmups. In seven games with Washington this season, Neuvirth is 2-3-1 with a 2.83 goals-against average and .912 save percentage. visit http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/12/12/washington-capitals-loan-g-michal-neuvirth-to-ahl-affiliate-hershey-for/
