The great days for hockey won't be as good. The hockey nights in Pittsburgh won't be the same. And that's not a slight against anybody. But nobody in the Pittsburgh media will ever mean more to hockey than Mike Lange, Paul Steigerwald and Dave Molinari. I'm lucky. I call them "Mikey," "Steigey" and "Davey," which are the respective friendly nicknames for three men who have done more for the Penguins than just about anybody not named Mario Lemieux or Sidney Crosby.
As they sat next to one another on Tuesday night, talking hockey as they had before hundreds of other hockey games, Jim Rutherford and Jason Botterill appeared to lapse into old habits inside a media-level suite at Pegula Ice Arena. After chatting with Rutherford for a few minutes, Botterill politely excused himself and walked out of the room reserved for personnel of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was needed somewhere else. He had a bigger room to enter.
The World's Greatest Hockey Player can still be a decent delivery boy. Is there anything Sidney Crosby won't do for the Pittsburgh Penguins? On his final free day before another NHL training camp, Crosby spent an afternoon traveling around Pittsburgh to deliver season tickets to fans of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions. And because he knows only one way to do anything, Crosby took to this task with his famous focus.
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".
