PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Former Penguins Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot both scored as the Pens lost to the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-2 at the CONSOL Energy Center Thursday night.

In the second, the Flyers took complete control of the period and the game. Jagr netted his 12th goal at 6:03 and saluted the crowd.
After Philly’s Matt Read made it 3-1, Tyler Kennedy came through with a goal off assists from Evgeni Malkin and Simon Despres.
Talbot had an empty netter for a final score of 4-2.
