The team hasn't been back to the conference finals since that electric win over Plymouth. The past four years have produced just one playoff series win and even the joy from that victory against Windsor a year and a half ago was short-lived as the Blueshirts were bounced in four games by the Knights in the next round. But things are looking up. There is reason to believe in this year's bunch, which takes on the Flint Firebirds in the season opener Friday at the Aud.
•NEXT IN LINE: Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. The 'Hounds will score, even with the graduation of Blake Speers, Zachary Senyshyn and Bob MacIntyre. Veteran goalie Joseph Raaymakers has asked for a trade so the Soo is banking on a big year from young Matthew Villalta, who was brilliant in the regular season but not so much in the playoffs. •DARK HORSE: London Knights. Yeah, the roster isn't dotted with the superstar talent of years gone by.
"I think my development in Sweden had stopped a bit," he said. "I didn't feel that I had the season I wanted last year. I felt like I needed something new. I think this is a really good option." Liska is also looking for more exposure. The forward is entering his NHL draft year and figured his ice-time would have been limited had he remained at home to play against older players this season. "This is the best junior league in the world," he said. "This is a really good experience for me.
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".
