Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Sharp in OT win
Lyon made 30 saves in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Avalanche.
Nathan MacKinnon slipped a puck past Lyon early in the second period, but the veteran netminder otherwise had an answer for everything Colorado fired at him. His numbers have begun to erode, but the Wings have been giving him enough support to keep him in the win column on a regular basis -- over his last eight starts, Lyon has gone 5-2-1 despite a lackluster 2.91 GAA and .903 save percentage....

Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Slated starter for Thursday
Lyon is expected to start against Colorado on Thursday, Red Wings host Carley Johnston reports.
Lyon has a 15-8-2 record, 2.83 GAA and .912 save percentage through 25 games this season. While he's having a solid campaign overall, the 31-year-old goaltender has struggled recently, allowing 20 goals on 147 shots (.864 save percentage) over his past five appearances. It will be difficult to rebound versus the Avalanche, who are tied for first offensively with 3.68 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Earns overtime win over Kraken
Lyon made 38 saves on 41 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken on Monday.
The Kraken fired double-digit shots at Lyon in each period in regulation, but he was up to the task to keep his team in the game throughout. It took 15 shots and a power play for Seattle to get on the board when Jared McCann wired a slap shot into the back of the net. McCann added another goal in the second period and then Jaden Schwartz got the game-tying goal in the third. The game went into overtime when Ben Chiarot ended it on a wrister for a Detroit win. Lyon finished the game with a solid .927 save percentage, his best mark in five games, which was good enough for his second win in that span. The Red Wings face the Avalanche at home Thursday....

Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Yields four goals in loss
Lyon allowed four goals on 21 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.
Lyon struggled against the Canucks' top six, and the Red Wings' offense couldn't find much success versus Thatcher Demko. This was Lyon's second straight loss, and he's allowed 11 goals in those contests. On the year, he's down to 14-8-2 with a 2.82 GAA and a .911 save percentage through 24 outings. Lyon is likely to keep the No. 1 role with Ville Husso (lower body) back on the shelf, though James Reimer is also around to challenge for playing time.

Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Lit up in relief outing
Lyon surrendered seven goals on 29 shots in relief of Ville Husso (lower body) in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Oilers.
Husso was injured on the first goal of the game, forcing Lyon to come in cold. Lyon gave up a quick goal, but he was steady enough in the second period to have the game tied at 3-3 heading into the final frame -- that's when the Oilers took over on offense. There's been few games like this for Lyon this season, who has a 2.76 GAA and a .915 save percentage to go with his 14-7-2 record on the year. If Husso has aggravated his previous injury, it'll likely be Lyon handling the lion's share of the starts in goal for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less

Lyon stopped 27 of 32 shots before being replaced by James Reimer to begin the third period of Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.
Dallas scored four goals in the second period to Detroit's zero, prompting coach Derek Lalonde to make the switch between the pipes in an effort to spark a comeback. It almost worked, as the Wings nearly erased a 5-2 deficit in the final frame. It was the first time Lyon had given up more than four goals in a game all season, and since taking over the No. 1 netminding job in late December, the 31-year-old has gone 7-3-1 in 11 starts with a 2.97 GAA and .913 save percentage....
