  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Wins second straight

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Lyon saved 25 of 27 shots during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Montreal.

    After a strong 25-save win against the Rangers on Sunday, Lyon played well again Tuesday. The rookie's workload is likely to remain limited, though. Petr Mrazek projects to handle the bulk of starts moving forward, so Lyon is probably best viewed as a potential spot starter against favorable opponents for seasonal leagues and daily contests.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Tapped for start Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Lyon will be the starting goalie for Tuesday night's contest against the Canadiens, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

    As soon Petr Mrazek was dealt to Philadelphia on Monday, there was talk that the newly acquired goalie could get the start Tuesday, but the turnaround time proved to be too severe and the incumbent goalie will get the start instead. Lyon looked solid in his first career winning effort, allowing just one goal on 26 shots, and he could be good for another nice showing against a struggling Montreal offense. The Minnesota native could receive starts here and there following the news that Michal Neuvirth (lower body) will miss 4-to-6 weeks, but the starting job almost certainly belongs to Mrazek for now.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Picks up first NHL win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/18) Lyon allowed one goal on 26 shots in relief for Michal Neuvirth during a 7-4 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

    Neuvirth allowed three goals on 14 shots in the first period, but he actually left because of an injury (lower body) and not due to his play. Lyon came on to lead the Flyers to a huge victory, which is his first at the NHL level. If Neuvirth is out for any length of time, Lyon should be claimed in all leagues, but keep in mind the Flyers will probably also try to add a goaltender before next week's trade deadline. Lyon has just four NHL appearances and can't be counted upon as a No. 1 goaltender down the stretch. Philadelphia's top goalie, Brian Elliott, is out until late March (lower body).

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Recalled from AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/18) Lyon was called up from AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

    Brian Elliott (lower body) was injured in Saturday's victory over Arizona. While the Flyers haven't given an update on the extent of Elliott's injury, Lyon's call-up is a bad sign. The 25-year-old netminder will likely serve in a backup role behind Michael Neuvirth and shouldn't see too much NHL action.

    Flyers' Alex Lyon: Shipped to lower leagues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/18) Lyon was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.

    The rookie netminder heads back down to the minors with starter Brian Elliott (lower body) being activated from injured reserve in a coinciding transaction. In three games with the Flyers, Lyons struggled mightily, posting a 3.93 GAA and .860 save percentage.
