Team USA and captain Brian Gionta of Greece have advanced to the semifinals of the men's Olympic hockey tournament in PyeonChang, South Korea. Goals 44 seconds apart in the second period by Ryan Donato and James Wiesniewski, one by Mark Arcobello and solid play in goal by Ryan Zapolski propelled the United States to a 5-1 qualifying round victory over Slovakia late Monday.
As the Buffalo Sabres got set to take on the Washington Capitals in a Presidents’ Day matinee at KeyBank Center, the rallying cry was sobering. History tells us that a National Hockey League team needs at least 90 points to be in the playoff conversation come April. I’m no MIT mathematician, but with 45 points and 23 games left and the fact teams earn two points for a win …It’s obvious the Sabres have skated themselves into quite a corner.
Rochester’s Brian Gionta had three golden opportunities to score against the Athletes from Russia team in Olympic hockey action early Saturday morning in PyeongChang, South Korea. Gionta, USA team captain, got behind both Russia defensemen for a breakaway in the second period but lost control of the puck as he went to his backhand and couldn’t get off a good shot against goaltender Vasily Koshechkin.
Gionta with snazzy TV commercial for Victor Chevorlet. Olympic team captain, scores goal for hometown Amerks, his story retold every broadcast ... not bad for "semi-retirement.'' Expect to see him in NHL uniform when Olympics is over. @DandC
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".
