Twice a season, the earthshaking June 2016 trade between the Predators and Montreal Canadiens can be hyper-analyzed. The debate surrounding the P.K. Subban-for-Shea Weber swap is unceasing, but there were more urgent matters for each team to tackle Wednesday. Weber didn't play, anyway. Nashville continued its November dominance, albeit barely in a 3-2 shootout win. The Predators are a league-leading 8-2-0 this month.
The definition of what constitutes a star in the NHL depends on the criteria used. From a statistical standpoint, Predators forward Filip Forsberg qualifies. Eleven NHL players before Tuesday’s games have scored more goals than Forsberg's 99 since the start of the 2014-15 season. Twenty-three have more points. But he’s routinely overlooked in discussions of the young difference makers that have overtaken the league.
Throughout the Predators' season, "Morning Skate" will highlight the odds and ends surrounding the team. Consider this a one-stop shop for Predators-related information. With a quick pirouette and a flick of his wrist, Kevin Fiala backhanded the Predators into the lead Monday against the Winnipeg Jets. This is what the Predators were waiting for, the spark that would set the talented forward afire.
This is an informative interview (as Arpon routinely conducts), but when can we move on from this angle? (Not an indictment of this specific article, but the storyline in general.) https://t.co/unCKPJ5eHQ
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
