Kevin Dineen likes to talk hockey. With players, with coaches, with friends, with fans, with reporters, with anyone. But he especially likes to talk hockey with people who work for other NHL teams. So every time he gets together with his brother, Jerry, a video coach for the New York Rangers, Dineen is probing and prying for any little tidbit he can find about the way Alain Vigneault runs his team.
Marian Hossa’s teammates knew about his skin disorder in recent seasons. They knew that it was painful and ugly, that it was the reason behind all those extra days off and all that extra time preparing for a game. And some of them even knew that it might eventually end his career. “It’s not like this happened overnight,” Jonathan Toews said.
Patrick Kane spent much of his career cycling through linemates, a new center or a new left wing showing up on a near nightly basis. He broke into the league alongside Jonathan Toews, fared well with Patrick Sharp, won a Stanley Cup with Michal Handzus, went on a tear with Kris Versteeg and Brad Richards, and got a spin with nearly every forward in the Hawks system from 2012-2015. Then Artemi Panarin showed up, and the revolving door stopped spinning.
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".
