The Pittsburgh Penguins teamed up with NBC Sports Network on Tuesday night for a classic “Slap Shot” game.

The event included famous sportscaster Bob Costas returning to where he began his career — in the Johnstown, Pa., arena where the 1977 movie took place — and the Penguins were more-than-willing participants, ultimately defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2.

Check out some of the best photos and GIFs from the night below.

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury remade a classic scene from the movie.

And, of course, the get-ups were on point.
