It depends on the situation. Gagne will get a mighty cheer when he skates onto the ice for the first time. A goal earlier in the game rather than a deciding tally would get a more receptive response; however, still, a tie-breaking late goal or OT goal will have its share of support from the home crowd though my guess is it would reflect the minority opinion.
As mentioned: Umberger. Also, though there are other examples, Brian Propp scored his 1,000th career point against the Flyers in Philly, though not his initial return. There was a smattering of boos for obvious reasons (it was an ENG and sealed the win for Hartford) but then Lou Nolan announced it was Propp's 1,000th career point and he got a fine cheer.
