This season, The Hockey Writers will have a recurring “Three Takeaways" feature after every Columbus Blue Jackets matchup, meant to serve as postgame quick hits. A rare occurrence this season: the Columbus Blue Jackets on the wrong side of lopsided losses. Even rarer? Forfeiting seven goals. The last time the Blue Jackets lost by more than three goals once all season (and three times by three goals) and that came against the Chicago Blackhawks in the team’s second night of the season.
This season, The Hockey Writers will have a recurring “Three Takeaways" feature after every Columbus Blue Jackets matchup, meant to serve as postgame quick hits. Tuesday night’s three-goal loss to the New Jersey Devils was — thankfully for the Blue Jackets — a rare sight in the early part of the season. The Jackets have only lost two other games by three or more goals this season. Losses by narrow margins prove they can compete with just about any team.
After going one-quarter of the way through the 2017-18 season, the Columbus Blue Jackets have finally found their top line. On paper, they are a band of misfits. On the left, there is charismatic Russian sniper Artemi Panarin, who at 26 years old has already built up quite the resume. In the middle, 19-year-old rookie Pierre-Luc Dubois, who was a penciled-in question mark on the roster coming into training camp.
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".
