Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Sharp in win over Wild
Lyon turned aside 37 shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Wild.
Joel Eriksson Ek beat him on a Minnesota power play late in the first period, but otherwise Lyon had an answer for everything fired his way. The 30-year-old has started three of the last four games for his first action of the season, going 2-1-0 and allowing only four goals on 83 shots for a .952 save percentage. Ville Husso and James Reimer had seen all the starts in the crease for the Wings until their trip to Sweden for the Global Series earlier this month, but Lyon is playing too well right now to be relegated to the press box....

Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Starting Sunday
Lyon will patrol the home crease versus Minnesota on Sunday, per Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News.
Lyon has started Detroit's last two games, falling 3-2 to Toronto in Sweden on Nov. 17 before posting a 4-0 shutout win over New Jersey on Wednesday. The Wild are 19th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.06 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Barely tested in shutout win
Lyon stopped all 16 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Devils.
The ice was tilted all night, as the Red Wings finished with a 28-16 edge in shots. Detroit spotted Lyon a 3-0 lead with three goals over a 1:12 span in the first period, and New Jersey didn't push back much after that point as Lyon cruised to his first win of the season and second career shutout. Lyon will hope that this strong effort earns him more playing time at the expense of Ville Husso or James Reimer.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Starting Wednesday
Lyon will patrol the home crease Wednesday against New Jersey, per Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site.
Lyon, who will make his second straight start, is coming off a 26-save effort in Friday's 3-2 loss to Toronto during his season debut. The Devils rank sixth in the league this campaign with 3.69 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Lead slips away in season debut
Lyon turned aside 26 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to Toronto.
The 30-year-old netminder was making his first start of the season and took a shutout into the third period of the Global Series game in Stockholm, but the Maple Leafs line of William Nylander, John Tavares and Tyler Bertuzzi took turns getting pucks past him as Detroit's defense wilted under the pressure. Lyon will go back to being the Red Wings' No. 3 netminder when Ville Husso (personal) rejoins the club back in North America, and while he played well Friday, it could be a while before Lyon gets his next chance in the crease....

Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Set to face Leafs
Lyon is expected to start versus Toronto in Friday's Global Series contest in Sweden, per Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.
James Reimer started for the Red Wings in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss, so it's not surprising that Lyon is getting the assignment for the second half of the back-to-back. No. 1 netminder Ville Husso isn't an option because he's back in Detroit to be with his wife, who recently gave birth to their first child. This will be Lyon's first start of the 2023-24 campaign after posting a 9-4-2 record, 2.89 GAA and .912 save percentage in 15 outings last year. Toronto ranks ninth offensively this campaign with 3.53 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Does his part in preseason tilt
Lyon set aside 25 of 28 shots in Thursday's 4-3, preseason overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.
Lyon, who is competing with veteran James Riemer for the No. 2 roster spot in Detroit's goal, played the entire game with Toronto dressing most of its regulars, ultimately earning praise from Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde. "Big saves and doesn't seem to be vulnerable to a soft goal," Lalonde said of Lyon. "You have to earn your goals against him, that's all you ask for of a goalie. He's had a solid camp." Lyon has a 16-11-5 record, 3.05 GAA and .903 save percentage between career stops in Philadelphia, Carolina and Florida.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Signs two-year deal with Detroit
Lyon signed a two-year, $1.8 million contract with the Red Wings on Saturday, per PuckPedia
Lyon posted a 9-4-2 record with a 2.89 GAA and a .912 save percentage in 15 appearances with Florida last season. Detroit also signed netminder James Reimer on Saturday, so Lyon will have some competition for the backup role behind Ville Husso going into the 2023-24 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Lyon: Allows three goals in relief
Lyon turned aside 12 of 15 shots in relief in a 7-2 loss to Vegas in Game 2 on Monday.
Lyon entered the contest at 7:10 of the second period after Sergei Bobrovsky surrendered four goals on 13 shots. Lyon held the fort for the remainder of the frame, but then was beaten three times on 10 shots in the third period, stifling any hope of a comeback. Still, the 30-year-old wasn't charged with the loss, so his playoff record remains at 1-2 this year. He also has a 3.63 GAA and an .888 save percentage in four postseason outings.... See More ...

Panthers' Alex Lyon: First off Tuesday
Lyon was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate ahead of Tuesday night's Game 1 versus Toronto, TSN's Chris Johnston reports.
The fact that Lyon was the first goalie off the ice at morning practice would generally suggest he's on track to start between the pipes Tuesday, but that'd be a bit of a surprising move for coach Paul Maurice after Sergei Bobrovsky secured three straight wins to close out the first round against the Bruins, helping propel the Panthers to the second round. Which netminder will ultimately get the nod for Game 1 against the Maple Leafs likely won't be confirmed until Florida takes the ice for pregame warmups.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Lyon: Gets hook in Friday's loss
Lyon stopped 23 of 26 shots before being replaced by Sergei Bobrovsky midway through the third period Friday in a 4-2 loss to the Bruins during Game 3 of the Panthers' first-round series.
Florida likely wouldn't even be in the playoffs were it not for Lyon's somewhat miraculous late-season run, but the magic could be wearing off for the 30-year-old netminder. He sports a 3.26 GAA and .902 save percentage to begin the postseason, and while coach Paul Maurice was non-committal after the game, Bobrovsky could be poised to make his first start since March 27 in Game 4 on Sunday as the Panthers try to avoid falling into a 3-1 series hole....

Panthers' Alex Lyon: In goal for Game 3
Lyon will protect the home goal during Friday's Game 3 versus Boston, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.
Lyon was solid in Wednesday's Game 2, turning aside 34 of 37 shots en route to a convincing 6-3 victory. The American netminder will try to secure a second straight win at home Friday in a matchup with a Bruins team that looks like it may be without captain Patrice Bergeron (upper body) for a third straight contest....

Panthers' Alex Lyon: Makes 34 saves in victory
Lyon stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 6-3 win over Boston in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Lyon surrendered two goals on 17 shots in the second period and allowed another marker in the third, but he got plenty of offensive support. He snapped a three-game losing streak, during which he stopped just 79 of 88 shots. Lyon's made 10 consecutive appearances and will likely start Friday given that he was on the winning end in Game 2.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Lyon: Tending twine for Game 2
Lyon will defend the road cage in Game 2 against the Bruins on Wednesday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Despite suffering a third straight defeat, Lyon will make his 10th consecutive appearance in goal for the Cats. If Lyon were to suffer another loss to the Bruins, coach Paul Maurice may be forced to finally give Sergei Bobrovsky a start. In the meantime, Lyon seems to have earned the trust of the coaching staff and will look to hold onto his spot in the crease.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Lyon: Falls in Game 1
Lyon allowed three goals on 29 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins.
Lyon allowed a power-play goal to David Pastrnak in the first period and two more tallies in the second as the Panthers dropped the series opener 3-1. Lyon surprisingly took over the starting job from Sergei Bobrovsky late in the season, going 6-1-1 with a .943 save percentage over his final eight starts. The 30-year-old Lyon will likely get the start again Wednesday in Game 2 as the Panthers look to even the series, though it may not take long for head coach Paul Maurice to give Bobrovsky a chance to reclaim the crease....
