Glenn Anderson got a penalty shot opportunity with 5:01 to play due to a Flyers penalty, but Neil Little came up with an arm save to keep the puck out and preserve the Flyers 3-1 lead.
The Rangers tested Little a few more times before time finally wore out and the home team walked off the field with a 3-1 victory.
New York eventually pulled goalie Dan Blackburn with just over a minute left, but it didn't work.
The crowd of 45,808 thoroughly enjoyed the alumni game today. It was fun to watch from the press box, too.
If I had to give out three stars, they'd go to:
1. Bernie Parent -- 6 saves in four minutes, stole the show early
2. Dan Blackburn -- Tremendous game from the guy who had his career cut short due to injury
3. Shjon Podein -- Used his plethora of ice time well and scored a goal
