Twenty games in, and no one can be sure what to make of the Vancouver Canucks. The team is now going on a six-game road trip that should show a lot about where they are at this season. They looked awful against an expansion Thursday. But they looked so much better in an exciting 4-3 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues. Here is what we learned …THE CANUCKS CAN PLAY WITH THE BIG BOYS — AT LEAST FOR A NIGHTThe Canucks bounced back nicely from the egg they laid against Vegas.
The Canucks surprising start to the season has been gently saying its good-byes and closing the door. They have lost four of the last five and are again a one-line team. Virtanen looks to be in the exact same spot he was a year ago. Not playing enough and unsure of his role. The coach said he liked his game. He still didn’t play 10 minutes. Now other things are happening. Good, game-changing things. The Canucks one line is driven by a rookie who has played half a college season in a little over a month.
The Vancouver Canucks can’t even beat an expansion team. To be fair, the Vegas Golden Knights are better than most expansion teams have been in NHL history. They played well. The Canucks did not. Vegas cruised to a 5-2 win at Rogers Arena on Thursday night, scoring three third-period goals. Here is what we learned:At least the Canucks have Brock Boeser. Against Vegas, they didn’t have much else. Well, they had Anders Nilsson, but they didn’t start him.
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".
