Top Alex Lyon News

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Exits ice first ahead of Game 1

    Lyon was the first goalie to leave the ice Monday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports, indicating he'll be between the road pipes for Game 1 against the Bruins.

    Lyon will be making his ninth consecutive appearance in the crease for the Panthers, having supplanted Sergei Bobrovsky as the Panthers' starter in goal. In those prior eight outings, the 30-year-old Lyon went 6-1-1 with a 1.87 GAA, .943 save percentage and one shutout. While Lyon gets the first look in the playoffs, his hold on the starting gig should probably be considered tenuous at best with Bobrovsky waiting in the wings.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Stumbles to finish line

    Lyon stopped 30 of 34 shots in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Hurricanes.

    The game had a wild finish -- with Lyon pulled for an extra attacker with over three minutes left in the third period, Carolina scored one empty-net goal only for Florida to answer back with two tallies of their own, before Sebastian Aho put the contest out of reach with a second empty-netter. The loss left the Panthers with the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, and a first-round matchup with the juggernaut Bruins. Lyon still performed admirably in place of Sergei Bobrovsky while making eight straight starts to close out the schedule, going 6-1-1 with a 1.87 GAA and .943 save percentage. Look for Bobrovsky to be between the pipes when the playoffs begin, however.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Facing Hurricanes

    Lyon will get the home start versus Carolina on Thursday, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Lyon has been red-hot of late, going 6-0-1 while stopping 226 of 237 shots. He has taken over as the Panthers' No. 1 goaltender from Sergei Bobrovsky as this will be his eighth straight start in goal. Lyon is 9-3-2 with a 2.80 GAA and .914 save percentage this season. He will take on the Hurricanes, who need a win to clinch the top spot in the Metropolitan Division standings.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Falls to Leafs in OT

    Lyon stopped 23 shots in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to Toronto.

    The Panthers out-shot the Maple Leafs 46-25 on the night, but Ilya Samsonov was the difference in the game, although Lyon had little chance on either puck that beat him -- one deflected home by Auston Matthews, the other coming in OT on a John Tavares breakaway. Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) has been suiting up as Lyon's backup the last two games, but Florida's had the luxury of waiting until its No. 1 netminder is 100 percent before using him again, as Lyon has gone 6-0-1 with a 1.55 GAA and .952 save percentage while starting the last seven contests.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Facing Toronto

    Lyon will defend the home net Monday against Toronto, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Lyon has won his past six outings, having stopped 194 of 203 shots. That includes a 38-save performance in a 3-2 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on March 29. The 30-year-old netminder has a 9-3-1 record this season with a 2.88 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Toronto is tied for seventh in the league this campaign with 3.41 goals per game.

Lyon has won a season-high six straight games to help the Panthers keep pace in the Eastern Conference wild card race. The Islanders won 4-0 against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday, and the Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings 5-1.

  • Panthers' Alex Lyon: Starting Saturday

    Lyon will be in the visiting crease versus Washington on Saturday, George Richards of reports.

    Lyon was sensational Thursday, setting a franchise record, as he turned aside 56 shots in a 7-2 win over Ottawa. It was his fifth straight win, giving him an 8-3-1 record with a 2.95 GAA and .914 save percentage. He will take on the Capitals, who are 20th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.08 goals per game.
