Hopefully you knew the score of the game before reading this. If not, sit down, because we need to talk. The Canucks lost 5-2 to the Vegas Knights. Part of you already feared this outcome when you read the Knights were starting Lagace in nets, the goalie who before this was trying to fight his way into the AHL. The Canucks have this quirky tradition, you see, of making relatively unknown goalies look like superstars. You’ll never accuse the Canucks of being bad hosts.
If the Canucks played this entire game 5 on 5, it might have been closer than the 5-0 loss they suffered at the hands of the Sharks. 5 on 5, they were in this game. When the Sharks were handed a penalty shot on a shorthanded breakaway with 12 seconds left in the game you just kind of had to laugh at your TV as if it was in on the joke. “Hahah good one TV, you made me watch this game.”The powerplay was as ugly as it’s ever been. As stagnant as the water in your seat on a rainy day on the 99 B-line.
Welcome to the first annual Stanchies Awards Show! Yes, that’s right, in a season where not much went right, there is still reason to celebrate the 2015-16 season. Sure, some of these awards aren’t exactly desirable, some of them might make us a bit depressed, but damn it, these players are getting awards whether they like it or not. So sit back, strap in, and let’s find out who won some Stanchies!
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".
