The Flyers' alumni have been making their rounds through the Philadelphia media as their game against the New York Rangers alumni inches closer and closer.

The two teams, full of both recent and older former stars of each club, will face off tomorrow at 1 pm at Citizens Bank Park. There are many story lines to be told between the teams, but the Flyers have enough of their own.

Eric Lindros will don a Flyers uniform for the first time since his ugly divorce with the team and then general manager Bob Clarke several years ago. Lindros will also be reunited with his "Legion of Doom" linemate John LeClair, who would give Zdeno Chara a run for his money for hardest slap shot in the NHL these days.

Will Clarke and Lindros settle their differences? Will LeClair and Lindros still have the tremendous chemistry that they had 'back in the day'?

Besides former captain and superstar Eric Lindros, the Flyers also welcome back another star and fan favorite in Bernie Parent.

Parent says he will only play about 10 minutes depending on his performance, but I think he'll be just fine. He will also be wearing his old pads, which he said the Flyers had stashed away for him all of these years. Parent is getting older (66 years old), but so is everyone else that will be skating on the outdoor rink at CBP tomorrow.

After all, "only God saves more than Bernie."

The Flyers alumni will practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ at 4 o'clock this afternoon. Practice is free and open to the public.

We will have more on the Winter Classic Alumni game later, so be sure to check back in to Buzz on Broad!
