Let’s get this out of the way from the top. This isn’t about excuses. There are none. The Detroit Red Wings are in a bad place. A place fans have not seen for a generation. Some of it was inevitable. No team stays on top forever. But some of it – a good portion of it, in fact – has been self-inflicted by General Manager Ken Holland. Despite Holland’s errors, which we’ll get to in a minute, he’s been given a vote of confidence by owner Chris Ilitch, saying the GM will be back next year.
When the Detroit Red Wings said farewell to Joe Louis Arena after their final game on April 9, they did so with a cavalcade of stars present and past. As legends and fan favorites took their turn saying hello to the crowd and good-bye to The Joe, the most bittersweet moment came when Vladimir Konstantinov was wheeled onto the ice where he was once one of the NHL’s most fearsome defensemen, beloved by teammates and Red Wings fans and loathed by opponents.
TOLEDO - Throughout the first half of his team's sectional championship game against Gibsonburg, Genoa boys basketball coach Zach Alt kept reminding his team, "Our pace, our pace." Alt and the Comets were leery of getting pushed out of their comfort zone by Gibsonburg's swarming, full-court trap defense, but they needn't have worried.
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".
