Sean Couturier was never that kid standing 20 feet from a road hockey game, stick in hand, shooting rocks, hoping for an invite. Since Day 1 with the Philadelphia Flyers, he’s been part of the action and a valuable member of the team. But like a great character actor who never gets tapped for the starring role, the eighth-overall pick from 2011 always felt like he had more to give. And, boy, was he right.
WINNIPEG – In hindsight, every little thing the Winnipeg Jets did to stay within striking distance of the Philadelphia Flyers was leading toward one play. And sure enough, when Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele got their look, the puck was in the back of the net. What else would you expect from one of the league’s best duos?
The nickname “Jumbo Joe” has always seemed to suit Joe Thornton. But if the hockey world ever wants to change it up, a close observer who saw plenty of Thornton before the latter cracked the NHL has a fantastic suggestion. For 25 years, Lane was the voice of many junior and semi-pro teams in the St. Thomas area, including the Jr. B St. Thomas Stars. During one of his final years on the microphone, a tall local boy with tremendous vision starred for the club.
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".
