The Penguins, who fell behind 5-1 early in the second period, tied it when Talbot, after winning a faceoff, flicked a shot from beyond centre ice that bounced off unaware goaltender Antero Niittymaki and in for his first career goal.
Talbot said he was just dumping the puck into Philadelphia's zone for a line change.
"I turned around ready to change and the guys were like, 'It's in! It's in!" Talbot said.
Niittymaki said he was watching a replay on the video screen and didn't see the shot.
"It was a stupid mistake," he said. "It won't happen again."
Im sorry but to be an NHL netminder and allow a game tying goal like that to complete a 4 goal goal breakdown is terrible. And also hysterical cause it happend to philly.
