In May, former champions returned. The Edmonton Oilers, deposed a year earlier, held off the Philadelphia Flyers in seven games to win their third Stanley Cup in four years. Forty-seven-year-old Al Unser Sr., who hadn't won at Indianapolis since 1978, got a job as a fill-in driver and raced off with the fourth 500 victory of his career, tying a record set by A.J. Foyt. Meanwhile, the Brewers crashed to earth, losing 12 games in a row, and a colt named Alysheba, ridden by Chris McCarron, triumphed in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness to get two legs up on the Triple Crown.
