WASHINGTON -- Braden Holtby initially tried to downplay the significance of the milestone, but couldn't deny that having his name in the company of a goaltender as prestigious as Hockey Hall of Famer Ken Dryden meant something. Holtby became the second-fastest goaltender in NHL history to reach 200 wins, making 27 saves in the Washington Capitals' 4-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Capital One Arena on Friday. Holtby got his 200th win in his 319th game.
Strader died on Oct. 1 at age 62, but the ceremony will go on, giving those close to him another chance to remember what made him special as a person and a play-by-play announcer. Fox Sports Arizona reporter Todd Walsh, who worked with Strader on Arizona Coyotes telecasts, will speak on his behalf. During his battle with bile duct cancer, Dave Strader liked to have events or days to look forward to.
The Washington Capitals center called them "reality," and the harsh reality is that he's gone seven consecutive games without a point, which is the longest drought of his 11-season NHL career. It's not something Backstrom or the Capitals are used to, but coach Barry Trotz is keeping things in perspective heading into a Metropolitan Division game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Capital One Arena on Friday (7 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN, TVA Sports, NBCSWA, ATTSN-PT, NHL.TV).
If Jaromir Jagr doesn't miss another game, he'd surpass Gordie Howe's record for most games (1,767) on March 2 in Calgary vs. Rangers. If he misses one game before then, he'd break Howe's record on March 5 ---
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".
