For a team coming off a disastrous season in which they ranked 29th in the National Hockey League in offence, the Vancouver Canucks stuck to their game plan in the early rounds of this weekend’s draft in Chicago. And for that they should be saluted. The Canucks appear to have gone to the Windy City with the realization they needed scorers in abundance. And wouldn’t you know it, it looks like they found a bunch.
With 1:14 to go, the Canucks trailing 2-0 and with Ryan Miller on the bench for an extra attacker last night in Chicago, Willie Desjardins tapped Bo Horvat, Alex Burrows, Chris Higgins and Sven Baertschi on the shoulder. This came moments after the Sedins, Radim Vrbata and Jannik Hansen had taken a twirl together trying to get the Canucks on the board in the late stages of the third period.
How many ways can you win 2-1 in the National Hockey League? The Vancouver Canucks know the answer to that question. Each of their three victories over the past 10 days has finished with that same scoreline: they beat Tampa Bay 2-1 in regulation in the game before Christmas, they edged Edmonton 2-1 in overtime on Boxing Day and they rang in the New Year with a 2-1 shootout win over Anaheim. So the Canucks have found three different paths to the same result. But it doesn’t end there.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
