  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Absurd showing in AHL playoff win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Lyon racked up an unheard of 94 saves on 95 shots during Wednesday's win over the Charlotte Checkers in the AHL playoffs.

    If there ever was a time to use the term "stood on his head," this is it. Lyon's Phantoms were outshot 95-53 in the contest, which went into a fifth overtime before a final tally was added. The victory boosted Lehigh Valley to a 3-1 lead in the series and bolsters Lyon's case as the top goalie in the team's minor-league ranks. However, with both Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth set to return next season and Petr Mrazek a restricted free agent, Lyon's prospects of making the Opening Night roster haven't improved much.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Heads back to AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/18) Lyon was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    The Flyers will welcome Brian Elliott back from a lower-body injury against the Hurricanes on Thursday, so Lyon -- who's posted a 4-2-1 record, 2.75 GAA and .905 save percentage through 11 games -- heads back to the minor league. Lyon failed to take much playing time away from Petr Mrazek when Elliott and Michal Neuvirth (lower body) were both injured, but he didn't look entirely out of place as a rookie either.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Demoted to AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/18) Lyon was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Lyon's bound for the minor-league affiliate due to the impending return of Michal Neuvirth (lower body), and besides, the rookie goaltender had been up with the parent club under emergency conditions and was effectively forced to the lower rank. The Flyers gave Lyon a golden opportunity to seize the starter's role for Petr Mrazek, but he ran into serious trouble against the Penguins on Sunday, yielding three goals on 11 shots before getting the hook in favor of Mrazek. Of course, he likely would've been relegated to backup duty anyway since Neuvirth is back in tow.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: In net Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/18) Lyon will be the road starter against the Penguins on Sunday, Bob Pompeani of KDKA TV reports.

    Lyon has a 2.49 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 10 appearances this season. The 25-year-old rookie could be in for a tough matchup, as the Penguins have averaged 3.25 goals and 34.6 shots on net per contest. However, Pittsburgh is even tougher at home, averaging 3.62 goals and 37.1 shots on goal per game.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Stops 33 in 4-3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/18) Lyon made 33 saves in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Lyon and fellow rookie Alexander Georgiev each faced 36 shots, but Lyon managed to get to one more puck than his Russian counterpart. While New York scored one goal in each frame, this was still a stronger goaltending performance than Philadelphia had been getting out of Petr Mrazek recently. With a playoff berth hanging in the balance, don't be surprised to see Lyon a lot down the stretch if Mrazek can't get it together soon.
