Penguins Locked In To Impress On Jagr Celebration Night



With Jaromir Jagr in town, the stakes just feel a bit higher for this game. One player for the Penguins even confirmed as much when he met with Jagr earlier this week. Kris Letang spoke to Jagr about how much Jagr meant to him growing up. Letang even went as far as to ask Jagr to sign his jersey after tonight's game.
