The NHL bye week may be coming at the right time for the New Jersey Devils, who have lost a season-high five games in a row. Three of New Jersey’s losses during their five-game slide have come in either overtime or shootouts. That gives the Devils 52 points through 41 games, their most halfway through the 82-game schedule since 2009-10, when New Jersey was 30-10-1 with 61 points.
The New Jersey Devils will play their first game of 2018 on Tuesday night in St. Louis after going 1-1-1 to close out 2017. The Devils lost to the Capitals, 5-2, Saturday night in Washington to fall out of first place in the Metropolitan Division. It was New Jersey’s first regulation loss in three weeks, dating back to their 5-2 defeat vs. the Rangers on Dec. 9. Defensemen Christian Djoos, John Carlson and Matt Niskanen each scored a goal for the Capitals in their win against the Devils.
The New Jersey Devils will return from the NHL’s holiday break on Wednesday night in first place in the Metropolitan Division with a 21-9-5 record and riding a season-high four-game winning streak. The last time the Devils were leading their division at Christmas was back in 2009-10 when they were 26-9-1 with 53 points, tied with Pittsburgh atop what was then the Atlantic Division.
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".
