A quick mix of the things we gleaned from the week of hockey, serious and less so, and rolling four lines deep. 1. Taylor Hall‘s first season in New Jersey was the first year you could look at the first-overall pick and say he’d taken a step back. The trade out of Edmonton ate at him. He was jealous. Said so himself. He was reeling from a breakup and needed time to grieve. He didn’t hide that either. General manager Ray Shero had a long, stern talk with the superstar.
TORONTO – Before the hockey starts, when the packed arena is silent, save for the national anthem singer, Mike Babcock will say a quiet prayer for Brian Boyle. He’s done so every game this season. “Any time you hear the word cancer — when you get cancer, your whole family does — it’s a scary, scary thing,” says Babcock, whose mother was taken by the disease.
TORONTO – Mike Babcock walked up to his other overtime hero, William Nylander, Thursday night and charged him one more task before bedtime: “Go thank Freddy.”Frederik Andersen — the busiest man in the National Hockey League — bailed out his team, coming out on the happy end of 1-0 goalie duel against a New Jersey Devils squad that stormed his crease like bumblebees.

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".
