The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 Tuesday night, with forward Kasperi Kapanen scoring two of their goals, as they played before fans in their home arena for the first time in nearly a year.

After Pennsylvania restrictions were eased at the beginning of the month, fans were allowed at the PPG Paints Arena at 15 percent capacity, which amounted to 2,800 fans. The Pittsburgh players raised their sticks to salute the fans after their win.
