Oilers fans just endured on one of the most drastic emotional rollercoaster rides they've felt in the past decade. Connor McDavid returned to the lineup last Tuesday and proceeded to score five points in two games, including a highlight reel goal versus Columbus, that had Oilers fans bursting with excitement. McDavid's return included two wins where the Orange and Blue outscored their opponents 12-3. Life was grand.

Congrats to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on winning the Super Bowl! And congrats to those of you who managed to stay awake during the entire game! I think we ALL deserve to briefly touch the Lombardi Trophy before it's handed over to a white collar criminal, who is clearly the one who REALLY deserves the praise for winning a championship! But for now you'll just have to settle for another instillment of First Star, Worst Star!
