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!

The AHL's main job is to produce NHL talent for the parent team, and one has to believe goalie Laurent Brossoit is one step closer to NHL employment. Although it may not come until this fall, a strong finish to this season in Bakersfield will help Oilers management make their decision.

*farts loudly* Final Score: 8-1 Oilers Islanders

It is common knowledge in Edmonton that Travis Hamonic wants a trade to Western Canada. It is equally common knowledge that the Oilers need a stable right-shot defenceman or two and Hamonic—a young, cost-controlled rearguard who averages 23:44 per game—fits the bill wonderfully.
With Edmonton now 10 points out of the playoffs and coming off an ugly loss to Montreal yesterday, a chance for the entire fanbase to assess Hamonic could be a much-needed distraction from the Oilers’ play.

Once again, those fools who run this website have left me in charge of the post-game summary. We’re going to do things just a little bit differently today, tracking the ebb and flow of the game with descriptions of all the chances for and against. As per usual, we include your tweets.
Of course, if you just want to revel in misery after a brutal loss to a terrible team, head to the comments section and cry your eyes out and/or burn Justin Schultz in effigy.
