Metaphorically speaking, the Penguins have been miles ahead of the competition the past two seasons. However, in terms of actual mileage traveled, the other 30 teams in the NHL lap the Penguins. The Penguins will travel the least out of all 31 NHL teams this season with an estimated at 34,041 travel miles. Compare that to the Colorado Avalanche’s projected 48,639 miles, tops in the NHL. That is a difference of 14,598 travel miles between the Penguins and Avalanche.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are the favorite to win the Stanley Cup once again this season. With a healthy Kris Letang, an added physical presence in Ryan Reaves, young talent with another year of experience, combined with the best core group of players in the NHL, it is understandable why the Las Vegas odds makers have picked the Penguins as 8:1 favorites to three-peat as Stanley Cup Champions. Obviously, three-peating as Stanley Cup Champions won’t be easy.
Recent events across the sports world have drawn attention to the tradition that occurs before the game instead of the action that occurs in it. Sports talk shows now dedicate as much time doing in-depth analysis of the actions of players during the National Anthem as what they did in the actual game. On Sunday, the Penguins actually felt the need to release a statement regarding their planned trip to the White House to celebrate their 2017 championship.
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".
