According to multiple reports, Neuvirth sat up and was able to move his extremities prior to leaving the game.

Team trainers rushed out on the ice after the incident, as did the entire Flyers bench. Here's a look at the Flyers' players reacting to Neuvirth collapsing.

Team officials and the refs immediately saw what happened and responded quickly.
