The future is unknown for Ondrej Pavelec, sidelined since Feb. 9 with a left knee injury and unlikely to get a game before the season ends and the 31-year-old impending free-agent netminder hits the open market for the second straight summer. “I don’t know what to expect [from free agency], but it’s not something I worry about,” Pavelec told The Post following Friday’s practice in which he got in some work. “I think my situation last year was way worse.
Far away from home, Pavel Buchnevich had spent nearly two seasons adjusting to North American life on and away from the rink without a fellow countryman with whom to navigate the transition from Russia. But that has changed within the last few weeks for the 22-year-old winger, recently joined on the Rangers roster by Alexandar Georgiev and Vladislav Namestnikov. “It’s much easier for me,” Buchnevich told The Post following Friday’s practice at home in advance of Saturday’s match in St. Louis.
Once again, and by design rather than mere happenstance, one of the NHL’s top teams is guaranteed to be knocked out during the first round of the playoffs, while a lesser club is ensured of advancing. What kind of a league is it that perpetuates this manifest injustice?
Tomorrow's Slapshots tonight. Parity-loving, excellence-punishing NHL persists with its faulty playoff format; Tavares, the NYI and NYR; Candy Canes; et al, including an MLB pitcher. http://nyp.st/2HIUDzk via @nypostsports
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".
