From a purely medical viewpoint, this has been a devastating offseason for the New Jersey Devils. First, General Manager Ray Shero learned that his crack center, Travis Zajac, would lose at least a couple of months of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. And now the club has made the heartbreaking revelation that Brian Boyle will be undergoing treatment for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML).
Ever since Hall of Fame, New Jersey legend Scott Niedermayer moved West to Anaheim and eventually retired, the Devils have sought a reasonable facsimile for their blue line corps. While finding needles in haystacks may be a lot easier than finding another Nieder-type, give the Garden State ice leaders marks for trying; and they just may have that man. The Monday re-signing of Damon Severson, 23, to a six-year pact worth $25 million simply underlines that point.
It’s a long way from Edmonton, Alberta circa 2003 to Citi Field, Queens circa 2018. Those geographic and time measurements tell you how far — and how successful — NHL outdoor games have been — all 22 of them so far. Right in our own backyard, this latest open-air ice extravaganza — Rangers vs. Sabres — will unfold on New Year’s Day, at the Mets’ home ballpark. It will be the NHL’s 10th “Winter Classic”, featuring fresh-air big-league hockey at its best.
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".
