The Flyers are once again scrambling to find a goalie.
Michal Neuvirth was activated off injured reserve earlier Wednesday but his return to the ice for the first time since Feb. 18 didn't last long. Neuvirth left the game with an undisclosed injury, prompting the Flyers to once again put Petr Mrazek on the ice in a matchup with the Avalanche.
#Flyers are now down their starter, too. Petr Mrazek now in net after Michal Neuvirth exits with apparent injury. This was Neuvirth’s first start since Feb. 18.

With Neuvirth out, Philadelphia without both the 30-year-old and Brian Elliott, who has been out since Feb. 10 after undergoing core muscle surgery.
The Flyers do have Mrazek to put between the pipes as they acquired him from the Red Wings at the trade deadline, but they will once again be scrambling to find a solution in net in the short term.
Philadelphia has yet to make an announcement on the specifics of Neuvirth's injury.
The Flyers currently hold the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference with a 38-25-14 record.
