COLUMBUS – Fredrik Claesson is the odd man out on defence as the Ottawa Senators aim to break their four-game losing streak against the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday. Senators coach Guy Boucher has opted to keep rookie defencemen Thomas Chabot and Ben Harpur in the lineup, while dressing 12 forwards. Boucher could have chosen to take out Johnny Oduya, who has also struggled.
COLUMBUS – On Wednesday, Gabriel Dumont arrived with the Ottawa Senators, carrying his Tampa Bay Lightning equipment bag with him. On Friday, Chris DiDomenico left with his Ottawa Senators equipment bag, en route to join the Tampa Bay Lightning. DiDomenico was plucked off waivers by the Lightning Friday, capping a bizarre game of trading places that had also seen the Senators pick up Dumont off waivers from the Lightning.
WASHINGTON — The Ottawa Senators appear to be on the road to nowhere, spinning their wheels in the midst of an ugly losing spiral. The Washington Capitals extended the Senators losing slide to four games with a convincing 5-2 victory here at the Capital One Arena on Wednesday. The Capitals, who came into the game with their own laundry list of issues, broke open the game late in the first period and piled on to the Senators misery before Ottawa showed much life.
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".
