No one said it needed to be pretty. The Rangers gutted their way to a very ugly 4-2 win over the Predators on Saturday afternoon at the Garden, giving them a much-needed victory to bring them to 2-5-2 on the season. By generating very little offense for the final two periods, the Blueshirts held on for dear life as one of last year’s Stanley Cup-finalists pressured for the game-tying goal.
That’s it for Matt Puempel and the Rangers. The Blueshirts traded the 24-year-old winger to the Red Wings on Saturday in exchange for defenseman Ryan Sproul. Sproul, 24, is a 6-foot-4, 205-pound righty who has 28 games of NHL experience and 220 games in the AHL. The native of Mississauga, Ontario, was Detroit’s second-round pick (No. 55 overall) in the 2011 draft and had one goal and three assists in five games this season for AHL Grand Rapids.
Jaroslav Halak might not have been perfect, but the Islanders goalie continued to find a way to beat the Rangers. Halak stopped 2-of-3 attempts in the shootout and backstopped his team to a 4-3 victory over the Blueshirts on Thursday night at the Garden. Halak came in with a 6-2 record as an Islander against the Rangers on Broadway, with a 2.29 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.
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".
