Add Doug Weight to the ever-growing list of those seeking some semblance of clarity on what is and what is not goalie interference. The hot button topic will be on the agenda, and will likely dominate the discussions, at the NHL general managers meeting Monday through Wednesday at Boca Raton, Florida. The Islanders coach was still red hot after Friday night’s 6-3 loss at Washington where he lost his challenge on Alex Chiasson’s power-play goal that made it 4-1 at 1:46 of the third period.
The Islanders are not blind to the obvious. They are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but their season will end on April 7. “I think the realistic part of it is, obviously, the odds are stacked against us,” said captain John Tavares, perhaps playing his last three weeks with the franchise that picked him first overall in 2009. “I think you always play no matter what, you never know what can happen.
WASHINGTON — The Islanders need to shore up their defensive effort as they conclude a home-and-home series with the Capitals on Friday night at Capital One Arena. And that’s not just because the Capitals won, 7-3, on Thursday night at Barclays Center as they chased Christopher Gibson after the goalie allowed five goals on 12 shots. Or that the Islanders allowed five or more goals for the 19th time this season. It has more to do with the open space the Capitals found for skating room.
Cal Clutterbuck says he has suffered from chronic migraine-like symptoms since his 20s. That’s what drove him from last night’s game. Symptoms subside after a couple of hours. Says it happens maybe a couple of times per season. #Isles#Newsday
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".
