Editor’s Note: The original version of this story incorrectly reported that Alex Nedeljkovic suffered an injury and returned to the U.S. The error arose from an incorrect interpretation of an email from Team USA, and DHN regrets the error.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Alex Lyon appreciated every one of teammate Lucas Raymond’s goals this season until he scored one against him at the World Championships in Czechia Friday.

Raymond scored for Sweden early in the second period to help his team claim a 5-2 win against USA in their opening tournament game.  Lyon stopped 23 of 26 shots as USA fought back to make it 3-2 in the third period.

The Americans had a power play with under three minutes left in regulation.  They pulled Lyon with just under a minute to go in the man advantage. The Swedes scored two empty netters to clinch the victory.

Detroit’s Jeff Petry played on USA’s third pairing with Chicago Blackhawks’ Alex Vlasic. Petry had an even plus-minus. Detroit oach Derek Lalonde is handing the American power play as John Hynes’ assistant.

Seth Jones, Zach Werenski, Luke Hughes and Jake Sanderson received the bulk of the defensive minutes. Columbus player Werenski scored one of USA’s goals. Brock Nelson of the New York Islanders had the other American goal.

Michigan State goalie Trey Augustine, a Detroit draft pick, was Lyon’s backup goalie. Former

The Americans play the Germans tomorrow at 2:20 ET.
