Are the Leafs answering all the questions you folks have about them? Maybe. But a few got in this week, a light week for the Mailbag. ANSWER: Couldn’t agree more the instigator penalty should be called more and that’s an obvious example. I think the refs don’t call it so much because they know (some) fans love their old-school hockey. Just witness the line brawl in Calgary the other night. If the instigator penalty was strictly enforced, there’d be no fighting at all. Fighting is down, big time.
MONTREAL—As the NHL’s general managers gathered at Montreal’s historic le Windsor hotel to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the league, the post-meeting talk was more about recent rule changes and an unexpected uptick in goal scoring. “I think it’s without question the game is going in the right direction,” said Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello.
The Devils held an overall shots advantage, 42-25, though Toronto goalie Frederik Andersen didn't face too many Grade A scoring chances until the 3-on-3 overtime when the Leafs had to kill a penalty. Meanwhile, Devils goalie Cory Schneider robbed Leaf shooters all night, especially James van Riemsdyk in regulation and Morgan Rielly in overtime. But the close scoring game was also not a bad one for Babcock and Devils coach John Hynes to enjoy.
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".
