Blackhawks forward Tommy Wingels almost hit the nail on the head Friday after practice when he said, "At this pace, we're probably not a playoff team." After Saturday's wretched display against the Islanders in which the Hawks allowed 4 goals and 26 shots in the first 25 minutes of an embarrassing 7-3 loss, we can safely amend Wingels' statement to:At this pace, the Hawks are definitely not a playoff team.
Before Saturday, the last time Erik Gustafsson played an NHL game he was being blamed for the most painful goal of the 2015-16 season. It came on April 25, 2016 when St. Louis' Troy Brouwer took advantage of Gustafsson's turnover and gave the Blues a 3-2 lead with 11:29 remaining in Game 7 of the teams' first-round playoff series. Neither team scored again and the Hawks were sent home early for the first time in four years. "It sat bad for me the whole summer for sure," Gustafsson said.
Artem Anisimov returned to practice Friday at MB Ice Arena for the first time since going on injured reserve on Dec. 29. The Blackhaws' center, was suffered an upper-body injury at Vancouver on Dec. 28, will not suit up against the Islanders on Saturday, but coach Joel Quenneville is hoping Anisimov can play against Tampa Bay on Monday.
Duncan Keith: "Time's ticking here and we know that the urgency has to be there. … We can sit here and talk all we want and say things, but it's got to come down to us doing it in the game. I'm responsible in that too."
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".
