In a game that was never in question, literally from the first face-off on, the Edmonton Oilers opened their official 2017-18 Training Camp schedule with a 5-2 win over Calgary at Rogers Place. The score, however, hid a number of shortcomings by the home team, not the least of which was a spotty power play. Sure, the Oilers scored thrice in the man advantage, but they had twelve (yes, count ’em) opportunities. The most they had all last season was 6 power plays in a game.
The cream rises to the top. And that is what Edmonton Oilers fans were treated to, at Sunday’s public “Blue-and-White Game” at Rogers Place. High-end skill took over early and often, as Todd McLellan continued to stick with what looks to be his projected lines and pairings to start the regular season with. I’ve never met a rink I didn’t like, and so it sure felt good to walk into Rogers Place early on a Sunday morning.
The physicals are done. The initial Day 1 work-out, broken into groups, is over. Now, we get to the first really interesting part of any training camp. The scrimmages. It is always dangerous to read too much into training camp, especially this early on. Many variables are just not reflective of the realities of in-season action. For one thing, all players are facing competition inferior to what they will see from Game 1 of the regular NHL season on.
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".
