Some thoughts ahead of Game 2 between the Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks:Should the offensive expectations on Connor McDavid change if Ryan Kesler is going to remain strapped to his back for the entire series? This isn't the average shadow job seen day-to-day in the NHL, Kesler is fully velcrowed to McDavid. It opens up ice for other players, but makes life miserable for McDavid who admits he has to find a way to battle through it.
Some thoughts from Game 3 of the Western Conference quarter-final between the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night:- Zack Kassian was notably less physical in Game 3 (The stats sheet showed three hits as opposed to six from Game 2). He spent less time chasing out of position to make big hits and later told TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger that it was a necessary adjustment in a game that was much tighter checking and defensive.
Some thoughts from Game 1 of the Western Conference quarter-final between the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night:- Many of the questions heading into Game 1 revolved around the difference in experience between these two teams and how much it would matter in this series. It certainly did on Wednesday night, in particularly in the opening minutes. While the Sharks were sure-handed and managed the puck well, the Oilers were a mess.
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".
