It happens every so many moons: the Flyers have a player named NHL No. 1 Star of the Week twice — in consecutive weeks. Jakub Voracek is the latest Flyer to be honored by the league after posting three goals and six assists for nine points over four games to help the Flyers continue their current nine-game winning streak. Goalie Steve Mason earned the honor the previous week. Rangers goalie Antti Raanta and Columbus center Sam Gagner, a former Flyer, were named No. 2 and No.
PHILADELPHIA — Doug Weight never minced words as a player and hasn’t changed during his first full season as the New York Islanders’ coach. His assessment of Jordan Eberle, a pivotal off-season acquisition, is dead-on. “Jordan was coming from a situation where, not blaming the Oilers, but he was in a beaten-down, lack-of-confidence situation,” Weight said. “I wanted to get him in here and let him know how we felt about him.”Weight feels rather positive about Eberle these days.
PHILADELPHIA – Some things never quite make sense in hockey. A determined young man, who in just four-plus seasons has staked his claim to owning the blue paint, had 115 goals to his résumé yet had never scored three times in a single game. Until Saturday afternoon, that is. “My comment to him tonight was, ‘you’ve scored an awful lot of goals for not having a hat trick,” said Calgary Flames coach Glen Gulutzan.
One of earliest members of the PHWA, Red Fisher, has died. No one was more entertaining to chat hockey et al before games in Montreal. He was also the last, angry man of Quebec. Which endeared him to Philly writers.
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".
