Pens v Avs

Colorado is coming to the Mellon tonight after losing to the Panthers in a shootout last night. Rupp is having a banner season, Siddo is a machine, the regular roster is returning to normal, and collectively the Boys are playing solid hockey. :)

In the meantime, here is a screen grab of the picture Friend of The Show MouthGuard told us about in The Friends' Zone in the last post. It's a priceless shot of MAF doing to IFHSA™ what I'm sure we all wish we could do to him:

Somehow I bet even that didn't shut him up.

I thought I would share with you how you can grab your own screenshots, since there are a TON of great photos in Flash slideshows. I have an iMac now, and it's super easy with OS X. But there's a neat (FREE!) utility that I use on the Windows 7 side to make my life easier. Instructions for both operating systems follow.

WINDOWS USERS: Click here and download MWSnap. It's a FREE utility that allows you to save snapshots of entire windows or portions of windows in five different image formats (.jpg, .bmp, .gif, .png, and .tif). It's not hard at all to figure out how to use.

MAC OS X USERS: There's a really simple way to do screen capture images already available. All you have to do is press the command + shift + 3 keys simultaneously. You'll hear a camera click, and the image file (a .png file) will be instantly saved to your desktop. This method saves a screenshot of the content visible in the entire display. But if you just want a portion of a certain window, use command + shift + 4. The cursor will change to a + that you can click, hold, and drag over the portion you wish to save. Again, you'll hear the camera click, and the image will be saved to your desktop. With this method, you don't have to crop the image out of the rest of the display. :)

Smack talk time: The Penguins are on fire! They're so hot, they're going to melt the Avalanche!


Ooooohh...... Not so much good at the smack talk, am I? ;)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!
