Callahan scored at 12:06, deflecting Derek Morris' blast from the right point.
Briere scored the only goal of the second period at 9:14. With Philadelphia on the power play, Briere flipped a shot over Lundqvist on what had effectively become a 5-on-3 advantage.
Rangers defenseman Paul Mara was severely hobbled after blocking a slap shot from Kimmo Timonen. Mara limped off the ice after the goal was scored but returned later in the period.
Early in the third, Lundqvist preserved the Rangers' one-goal lead with a spectacular diving glove stop on Daniel Carcillo.
The Flyers got a power play when Naslund was whistled for interference on Biron at 10:05. Philadelphia failed to capitalize but the Flyers did have a golden opportunity to even the score when Briere hit the crossbar with 4 minutes remaining.
