COLUMBUS - Jake Voracek skated to the left and shot right, fooling Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, but barely raised his stick to celebrate. The 18,901 once-excited fans more or less yawned, unsure whether to clap or cry for the 16th tally in a 29-goal bonanza that may well have as many points as Sunday's Super Bowl provides. The 60th NHL All-Star Game was played with as much intensity as an afternoon nap, as much physicality as badminton and maybe as much interest as Disney on Ice. Even a mock post-whistle scrum around the net ended with smiles and hugs.

THE FLYERS are stuck in no-man's land. Entering yesterday's games, they were a full 10 points out of both a ticket to the Stanley Cup playoffs and the largest lot of pingpong balls in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. You would not be wrong to think these are the darkest times for the Flyers' franchise since the string of five consecutive fruitless seasons in the early 1990s, save for that aberration in 2006-07. The Flyers have an unthinkable ending to their eight-game road trip to thank for that.

Huge Cowboys edge at QB (where Tony Romo is having arguably the best season of his career) and at RB (where DeMarco Murray is this season's LeSean McCoy). Only Aaron Rodgers has a higher passer rating than Romo, and, after an ugly season opener, Tony has thrown 21 TDs against only three interceptions.
