NEW YORK – In the last month Matthew Tkachuk has gone from renowned super-pest to star. Like everything in his career, the transformation has come quicker than many expected. The 20-year-old Flames winger topped off a tremendous month Sunday night with two third-period goals against the Islanders, including the game-winner with a minute left. In a nod to the rugged style he has used to gain quite a reputation around the league he also drew three penalties and had six shots on goal.
BROOKLYN – It was supposed to be Travis Hamonic’s night. And with 1:05 left it sure seemed to go according to script, with the Calgary Flames defenceman assisting on the go-ahead goal in his return to Brooklyn. However, with 1.1 seconds left Mike Smith stole the spotlight with a game-saving stop on John Tavares that finished with the netminder lying flat on the ice, writhing in pain.
NEW YORK – Almost three years later, Travis Hamonic still isn’t comfortable revealing exactly what prompted him to ask for a trade. It was the fall of 2015 when a personal family matter prompted him to sit down for a heart-to-heart with New York Islanders GM Garth Snow that would eventually thrust the private life of the quiet product of St. Malo, Manitoba into hockey’s spotlight.
Congrats to my good pal Gerry Forbes for making a huge difference in our community over 63 yrs of morning radio.😉 Your impact & generosity as a Calgary leader was immense, teaching others how to properly use such platforms. Enjoy retirement & pls don’t take up golf. @Flapjack92
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".
