A handful of us, including Wayne Fish, Rob Parent, Les Bowen, and Tim Panaccio, were fortunate to have a front-row seat to the Eric Lindros saga from its giddy beginnings to its acrimonious end. From being traded to the Flyers and Rangers on the same day in 1992 to lying concussed on the ice in Game 7 of the 2000 Conference Finals, Lindros’ career as a Flyer was fraught with controversy.
NEWARK, N.J. >> It’s not like the Flyers’ power play had been performing badly this season. But suddenly, it’s a force to be reckoned with. Case in point: Saturday night’s game at the New Jersey Devils, where the Flyers scored twice with the man advantage, rallying for a 5-3 win at the Prudential Center. The Flyers have seven power-play goals in their last four games (all victories), the most productive four-game stretch of the season.
VOORHEES, N.J. – Just how much did Bloomsburg University student Jackie Lithgow appreciate what the Flyers did for him three years ago after he suffered a brain injury from a personal attack on campus? Well, for one thing, he put on a pair of sneakers the team gave him and didn’t take them off for a year and a half. “Except to go to bed,’’ he says with a chuckle on Wednesday at the Skate Zone. The first time Lithgow visited the Flyers, he was confined to a wheelchair.
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".
