“Honey, do these jeans make me look fat?” Any married man who’s been lobbed that grenade by his better half understands there are times when honesty takes a backseat to diplomacy -- otherwise known as the white lie, the fib – lest one risk frostbite between the marital sheets for weeks on end.

Welcome, welcome one and all, to the inaugural post in the NEW First Star, Worst Star feature! For those of you that are new around here, or have just forgotten a lot of things due to Oilers-related-alcohol-abuse (ORAB) this is a feature we did a lot of years back where we highlight the best and the worst thing in the NHL this week! You can check out the OG posts here!
Without further ado, here we go!

Another bad start, another wasted game. Final Score: 4-3 Senators.

The Oilers have scored first in eight of their 16 games, however, they've only held the lead twice after the first period. Another step in their development -- yes they still have a lot of steps -- will be learning to build off of a good start.
The Oilers are only 4-3-1 when they score first, tied for 24th worst winning % when scoring first, but the good news is that if they don't score first, the Ottawa Senators, their opponents this evening, are 27th with a .444 winning % going 4-2-3.
