Michal Neuvirth will be out of action for at least a month with what the Philadelphia Flyers are calling a "lower-body injury."

The Flyers' backup goaltender was injured Saturday night in Philadelphia's victory over the Minnesota Wild.

He was forced to leave the contest after the opening period with what CSN Philadelphia's Tim Panaccio reported as a sprained knee and not a groin injury.

Steve Mason will take on a heavier workload in Neuvirth's absence. Mason stopped 19 of 20 shots in relief Saturday, one night after allowing six goals in a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
