Perhaps the greatest hockey writer in the history of the game died at 91 Friday. The example he set with his work ethic and professionalism will live on for many years. Former Montreal Gazette columnist Jack Todd likes to tell a story about an interview he did with Guy Lafleur after Lafleur made his comeback with the New York Rangers in 1989. The two spoke for about two hours and as their interview was finishing up, Lafleur asked Todd how Red Fisher was doing.
Liam Kirk won't find his name among the top draft prospects, but the UK-born-and-trained forward is turning some heads in North America with his play in Great Britain's top league. Liam Kirk’s name will not appear on the NHL Central Scouting Bureau’s list that goes out to the public next week, but it will be on a “limited viewing” list that is sent to every NHL team.
Without three of their top players, the Nashville Predators shutout the surprising Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday. That performance has helped vault the Predators to the top of this week's Power Rankings. No top line? No problem. Well, OK, that’s a problem, but if there’s any team equipped to deal with the body blows of losing three top offensive players to injuries, it’s the Nashville Predators.
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".
