Winter Classic Alumni Game Final Score: Flyers Greats Claim 3-1 Win Over Rangers' Best

The 2011 Winter Classic Alumni Game included a handful of goals and a fair bit of good play, and went to the Philadelphia Flyers' alumni, 3-1.

The Flyers scored twice in the first period, on goals from John LeClair and Shjon Podein, and though the Rangers pulled one back in the second period via Glenn Anderson's stick, Mark Howe added a penalty shot goal in the third period to produce the game's final margin.

Versus' crew named Bernie Parent, Eric Lindros, and Mark LaForest its three stars of the game. Parent, the legendary 66-year-old Flyers goalie, played for just five minutes, but did not allow a goal, and sprawled to make one memorable save. Lindros assisted on LeClair's goal, and LaForest made a number of saves in relief of Parent.
