0 - Number of playoff series (of 14 total) in four seasons playing in North America which Michal Neuvirth has lost (and he's not shy about letting everyone know that). A quick look at Neuvy's postseason-by-postseason results:

  • 2006-07: Went 14-3/2.45/.932 for OHL Champion Plymouth
  • 2007-08: Went 7-2/2.48/.932 for Oshawa (which lost in the third round without an injured Neuvirth)
  • 2008-09: Went 16-6/1.92/.932 for AHL Champion Hershey (setting an AHL record for the lowest GAA in a playoffs and winning the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as Calder Cup Playoff MVP)
  • 2009-10: Went 14-4/2.07/.920 for AHL Champion Hershey

That's a combined 51-16/2.17/.929 line overall, and a perfect 14-for-14 in playoff series in which he's played.
