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....

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.

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.... See More ...

Panthers' Alex Lyon: Sets franchise record in win
Lyon made 56 saves in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Senators.
The 56 stops sets a Panthers record for saves in a regulation game, topping the 53 saves Craig Anderson made back in 2008. Lyon has won five straight games with a stellar 1.40 GAA and .961 save percentage while Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) has been sidelined, and his work between the pipes has kept Florida in a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, just one point ahead of the Penguins....

Panthers' Alex Lyon: Facing Senators
Lyon will guard the home goal versus Ottawa on Thursday.
Lyon was fantastic in his last start Tuesday against the Sabres, turning aside 39 of 40 shots en route to a tidy 2-1 victory.

Panthers' Alex Lyon: Excellent in victory
Lyon stopped 39 of 40 shots, leading the Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the Sabres on Tuesday.
The third star of the game, Lyon was sensational, allowing just one goal to Dylan Cozens in the first period. With Sergei Bobrovsky out for the fourth straight game with an illness, Lyon picked up his fourth straight victory, allowing just five goals in that stretch. As Florida is in the middle of a tight playoff push, Lyon could hold onto the starting gig even when Sergei Bobrovsky returns.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Lyon: Starting Tuesday
Lyon will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Buffalo, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Lyon will make his fourth consecutive start after stopping 77 of 81 shots during a three-game win streak.

Panthers' Alex Lyon: Blanks Blue Jackets
Lyon stopped all 21 shots he faced in Saturday's 7-0 win over Columbus.
The game was never in doubt, as Florida scored multiple goals in each period, but Lyon had his busiest period in the third as the Blue Jackets tried in vain to spoil his first NHL shutout. The 30-year-old has won three straight starts while Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) has been sidelined, and the surge has carried the Panthers into the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference -- although two of those wins have come against teams in the bottom five in the league in the Jackets and Canadiens....

Lyon will guard the road cage Saturday against the Blue Jackets, per Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site.
