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. Check out our photos from the game after the jump.
Yes, Jagr did manage to get a pretty nice goal past Fleury. In an interesting subplot, Jagr decided to celebrate by skating right over to @PensKnittngLady and saluting her:
And she "saluted" back:

Anyway, back to the game.
