Earlier this week, a reporter told Flyers general manager Ron Hextall he looked glum as he walked into the pressroom and was about to start a news conference. "We're in 25th place in the league," Hextall replied, "and I'm supposed to come in here . . . cheery?" Hextall was in a better mood Thursday after watching the Flyers win their second straight, a hard-earned, 3-2 overtime victory over a Washington team that had lost just once in regulation in its previous 15 games. With a sellout crowd watching at the Wells Fargo Center, Jake Voracek's one-timer from the high slot deflected off a Washington player and into the net, giving the Flyers the dramatic win. "I got a lucky bounce, but it was a big goal," Voracek said of his power-play tally.

NEW YORK - It had been a long time, more than three months to be exact, since Christian Hackenberg looked like the confident quarterback who had excited Penn State fans during his 2013 freshman year, who was on everyone's top-10-in-the-nation list at the start of the season. On Saturday at Yankee Stadium, Hackenberg showed a captivated sellout Pinstripe Bowl crowd of 49,012 that he could still be that guy, leading the Nittany Lions back from a two-touchdown deficit against Boston College and carrying the game into overtime.

In the aftermath of a 68-66 overtime loss to American at Tom Gola Arena on Tuesday, La Salle's players said all the right things. They credited their foes with playing hard, making tough shots and shooting the ball at better than 48 percent from the field. But when La Salle coach John Giannini had the last word, he acknowledged what everyone in the arena saw. The Explorers were not ready to play. "You can't not be ready to play and beat a team like American, especially when they are shooting the ball the way they are. We weren't ready to play," Giannini said.
