Claude Giroux stood in front of a gaggle of reporters inside the locker room after the Flyers’ 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday downright giddy while answering questions about the team’s four-game winning streak, his no-look, between the legs pass that led to the go-ahead goal late in the third period and the offensive breakout season from Sean Couturier. It was a stark contrast from the last time he faced the media in Philadelphia.
The Flyers found themselves in an unfamiliar position at the start of the third period on Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks. They trailed by two goals. In four of their last six games, the Flyers had led by a pair of goals to either begin the final period or during it. However, in each of those contests, they failed to protect the lead and either lost in overtime, a shootout or regulation.
The Flyers lost their ninth straight game on Tuesday to the San Jose Sharks, which is their longest streak in nine years. During the game, a 3-1 affair that was one of the team’s worst performances of the season, fans repeatedly and loudly called for coach Dave Hakstol to be fired. Then, following the game the captain Claude Giroux called for a closed-door meeting to air things out. Yes, it was indeed one of the darkest moments in recent Flyers’ history.
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".
