Much to be thankful for in the NHL this holiday season, but also some issues that we would like eradicated. What we would be thankful to be without:Cancer. NBC analyst Eddie Olczyk is going through chemotherapy. New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle was diagnosed in training camp. Former referee Kerry Fraser announced his diagnosis in November. Cancer is the NHL’s ugliest adversary. No NHL players in Olympics. This is not to say the 2018 Games won’t be enjoyable.
The NHL season is only 47 days old, but history shows that teams not in a playoff position on Thanksgiving will have a difficult time getting there by the end of the season. With 309 games already played, we will be at the quarter pole of the season this week. USA TODAY Sports NHL columnist Kevin Allen and NHL editor Jimmy Hascup weigh in with their award front-runners.
The Nashville Predators, Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche stunned the hockey world on Sunday with a six-player, three-pick blockbuster trade headlined by Matt Duchene and Kyle Turris. Here are other teams that could benefit from an early-season trade. Which team needs to make an early trade the most? Kevin Allen: Edmonton Oilers (5-8-1). With Connor McDavid on this roster, it isinexplicable that the Oilers rank last in the NHL in goals per game (2.29) and 26th in power play efficiency (14%).
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".
