For one day, at least, it felt like the best of the old times. A sellout crowd of 13,917 at Nassau Coliseum — the building now officially known as NYCB Live — made the Islanders’ preseason opener feel like a playoff game on Sunday afternoon and the Isles didn’t disappoint, even if the result doesn’t matter. John Tavares scored the winner in overtime to beat the Flyers, 3-2, sending the crowd home happy from the lone hockey game to be played on Long Island this season.
*For one day only in the preseason. The Islanders are indeed taking the ice at NYCB Live, the building known as the Nassau Coliseum for the 43 seasons the Isles played there, for Sunday’s preseason opener against the Flyers. Even though it’s one preseason game and not anywhere near a full-blown return to Long Island for the team, its players and coach recognize what Sunday will mean beyond a chance to shake off some rust. This is a homecoming of sorts.
NHLers hoping for a chance to play in the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea in February already know that the league has declined to participate. But there’s plenty of bitterness among the players who would have gone. Caps captain Alex Ovechkin released a statement earlier this week decrying the decision and the Islanders’ Olympic veterans expressed the same disappointment as NHL camp began.
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".
