Todd Hlushko’s wheels were turning. With a shootout to decide the 1994 men’s hockey Olympic final breaking Canada’s way, Hlushko stood with a few of his fellow relative unknowns on the bench and began scheming on the best way to get a little slice of the glory once Canada claimed its first hockey gold in nearly half a century. “We started discussing, if we win, what’s the best way to get air time?” Hlushko says.
Ottawa Senators supporters probably wish they weren’t compelled to pay so much attention to the team’s prospects right now. Yet, as 2018 cranks up, questions surrounding the floundering Sens have more to do with which veterans they might move or whether or not their 2018 first-rounder — conditionally sent to Colorado in the Matt Duchene deal — will wind up being so high that they’ll use it and send the Avs their (completely unprotected) 2019 pick instead.
Last spring, the Ottawa Senators were a single goal away from playing in the Stanley Cup Final. About six months later, the team seems perpetually on the verge of coming completely apart. That the Senators, who visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, are struggling to repeat last year’s success doesn’t register as a huge surprise — analytic-minded observers have long been suspicious of this team.
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".
