Prompted by Michal Neuvirth's left leg injury, goaltender Dany Sabourin was recalled from Hershey to serve as a back-up in the Capitals' season finale against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

The Washington Capitals will recall goaltender Dany Sabourin from Hershey, according to reports. Sabourin apparently had his Caps' bag packed and was waiting for transportation from Hershey to New York, where the Caps will finish the season on Saturday against the Rangers.

Via Tim Leone of The Harrisburg Patriot-News:

Sabourin has not played in an NHL game since 2009, but will serve as a backup to Braden Holtby in Saturday's season finale. The call-up is necessitated by Michal Neuvirth's injury, which happened in the second period of Thursday night's playoff-clinching win over the Florida Panthers. Neuvirth was scheduled to see a doctor on Friday about his injured left leg, but he's still being called day-to-day. With Neuvirth's status still uncertain, Sabourin is just filling in on Saturday for now and has not been told he's playoff backup yet.
