Game Photos: Pens vs Flyers 12/29/2011

Thursday night at Consol Energy Center wasn't about the battle for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. It wasn't even the usual grudge match between two cross-state rivals. It was all about the return of two former Penguins, both legendary in their own way. And what a return it was for Max Talbot and Jaromir Jagr. While both received much different greetings from the fans (constant boos for Jagr, a smattering of boos that turned into a standing ovation for Talbot when a video tribute to him was played on the big screen), they both ended up making important contributions in Philadelphia's 4-2 victory.

Why I shouldn't be the 100th person followed by the Pens on Twitter

It's pretty simple.

(Update: Apparently the Pens Twitter account agreed with me).

Game Photos: Pens @ Canes 12/3/2011 and Morning Skate

A couple of times a season we like to sit behind the bench. Sure, it's a trade-off. Obviously you aren't going to get the perfect view of the game that you'd have 20 rows higher, but it does provide a great look inside the constant flurry of activity between coaches, players, officials, trainers and equipment guys. That was particularly true in this game given the unreal nature of the closing minutes. Check out our photos from the game and the Pens morning skate after the jump.

The Pens ended a long drought with their first regular season, regulation win over the Caps in over three and a half years in a mostly dominating performance that saw them clamp down in the final minutes to hold on to the 2-1 victory.
