About 90 minutes before puck drop, the Ottawa 67’s huddled in their tiny quarters inside the Robert Guertin Arena and watched a motivational video capped by the gold-medal winning goal of a week ago by Tyler Steenbergen to give Canada the World Junior Championship in Buffalo. Naturally, the room exploded in applause at the goal, then watched Steenbergen explain how he “blacked out” scoring it. The game-winning and medal-winning celebration could not have been lost of 67’s sophomore Samuel Bitten.
Just 15 minutes and eight seconds into the first ever game at the brand new, and not quite completed, Ottawa Civic Centre, Pierre Jarry stole the puck and brought more than 9,000 fans, all of them dressed in their Sunday best, out of their seats with the first ever goal in the building. And the rest, they say, is history.
As Chris Hamilton sought the advice of experts across the Ontario Hockey League on how to prepare the Ottawa 67’s for what’s expected to be a frigid Outdoor Classic on Sunday, 6-6, 231-pound 67’s defenceman Kevin Bahl had a suggestion for the equipment manager. “He wanted to know if he could wear a hoodie,” Hamilton said with a laugh. “I told him it probably wouldn’t work.”Hamilton has been the busiest 67’s staffer in the days leading up to the game. It’s all about keeping the players warm.
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".
