Corey Crawford did everything he could to give his team a victory at Tampa Bay, but the Lightning took advantage of a Nick Schmaltz slashing penalty in overtime and came back to post a 3-2 victory Wednesday night. The Hawks got a pair of first-period goals from Patrick Kane -- his seventh and eighth of the season -- but they never scored again and fell to 10-8-3 on the season.
Of the tens of thousands of position players who have skated in the NHL, only those three have managed to stretch their careers past their 45th birthday. Eleven years from now, Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith hopes to add his name to that short list. "I want to play til I'm 45. I feel like I'm 22 right now. I do. Honestly," Keith said after Tuesday's practice at MB Ice Arena. "I'm 34, I feel great. I feel better than I did at times when I was 27, 28. "Hockey's a team game.
Over the course the six-month marathon that is the NHL schedule, the games tend to blend together into a monotonous, endless, mind-numbing stretch. But some contests -- like the one the Blackhawks will play Wednesday in Tampa Bay -- get the juices flowing to a different level, even for a veteran like Jonathan Toews. That's because the stacked, deep and dangerous Lightning owns a best-in-the-league 15-3-2 record and will no doubt be the Hawks' stiffest test of the season.
@GetThePuckOut2 There are very few strong teams in the West. Every one has strengths and weaknesses. Hawks' biggest strength is their goaltender -- and that's oftentimes what gets you a playoff spot (if you're a bubble team) and a deep playoff run.
Heading into today's #NHL games, here is what 8th place in the wild, wild West looks like:
Colorado (20 GP, 23 pts.)
San Jose (20 GP, 23 pts.)
Hawks (21 GP, 23 pts.)
Minn. (21 GP, 23 pts.)
Anaheim (21 GP, 23 pts.)
Dallas (22 GP, 23 pts.)
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".
