ANAHEIM — In Saturday’s game against the Kings, Nick Ritchie made a play that carried a lot of impact and factored in the Ducks’ victory over their bitter rival. Ritchie saw Kings goalie Jonathan Quick play the puck behind his net and hustled to pressure him. The play wasn’t just effective, it made a difference. He got the puck away from Quick and sent a pass out into the slot area for his linemate, Ondrej Kase, as the goalie remained woefully out of position.
DENVER – Jonathan Bernier kept denying his old teammates and Colin Wilson kept finding a way to burn the Ducks, even as he has changed his NHL address. Bernier stopped 33 shots to beat the team he spent last season with and Wilson scored a key power-play goal late in the second period that lifted the Colorado Avalanche to their seventh straight victory, a 3-1 decision over the Ducks in a Martin Luther King holiday matinee Monday at Pepsi Center.
It might be wise to regularly hit the refresh the NHL standings webpage by the hour on a given busy night. As tight as it is in the Eastern Conference, there is the potential of a nightly free-for-all in the Western Conference when it comes to who holds playoff spots. This week kicked off with the Ducks and Colorado sitting one point behind San Jose and Chicago, which were both one point behind Dallas as it held the second wild-card spot.
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".
