It’s Neuvy time.

The Flyers announced today they have activated goaltender Michal Neuvirth from injured reserve and have loaned goaltender Alex Lyon to the AHL the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Neuvirth will start Wednesday’s game in Colorado after missing the last 18 games with a lower-body injury. The Czech netminder was injured Feb. 18 against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Neuvirth helped the Flyers earn points in each of his last five appearances prior to the injury, posting a 3-0-2 record with a 1.71 GAA and .949 save percentage. He’s been skating in practice with the team for the last week.

Lyon appeared in 11 games for the Flyers this season, posting a 4-2-1 record to go with a 2.75 GAA and .905 save percentage.
