PHILADELPHIA — At 7:37 of the first period Saturday night, Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth collapsed in the goal crease and had to be helped off the ice on a stretcher.

He was taken to Pennsylvania Hospital for observation and, according to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, was awake and alert.

During a stoppage in play with the faceoff in the New Jersey Devils end of the ice, the Flyers goalie fell down and appeared to pass out. Several teammates jumped off the bench and helped trainer Jim McCrossin get to the ice to tend to the goalie. Neuvirth had made six saves before leaving the game.

“He wasn’t feeling that well in the locker room and we were worried about him,” winger Colin McDonald said on the Flyers’ TV broadcast of the game at first intermission. McDonald scored later in the period to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead.
