Fights, hot chicks and a big win for the Baby Pens: Your Monday Morning Mini Link Roundup

The Penguins may only need to go 1-4-1 to get 93 points to probably ensure a playoff berth, but doesn't it feel like there's more work to be done than that? [From the Rink]

Petr Sykora's been quiet lately [Faceoff Factor]

The New York Post's Larry Brooks compared the excessive penalties on the Rangers from Saturday's game to "state sponsored terrorism" by the referees. No, really. [The Peerless Prognosticator]

Mark Eaton is the Masterton Trophy nominee for the Penguins. Not to take anything away from Eaton's solid return from injury, but he's not coming close to sniffing the finals with great stories like Steve Sullivan (NSH), Brian Pothier (WSH) and my winner, Richard Zednik (FLA). [Tribune Review]

Update: Check out this great piece from Litterbox Cats about Zednik and a couple pretty goals he's had along the way this season.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins won a huge game against their division leading rival the Hershey Bears yesterday, shutting out the high-scoring Caps affiliate 1-0 [AHL]

John Curry was great, denying the Bears on an extended 5-on-3 at the end of the game. [Penguins Insider]

Thanks to winning yesterday, the Baby Pens clinched their seventh straight trip to the Calder Cup playoffs [WBSPenguins.com]

An interesting look at the Penguins workout routines AFTER games [PG]

Alyonka Larionov says she isn't Alex Ovechkin's sloppy seconds (just friends), and she wants to cook with Evgeni Malkin and Ovechkin. Sorry if that sound gross [Trib]

This is kind of old but still funny: at practice last Thursday, Marc-Andre Fleury stepped out of his net when Matt Cooke was going to shoot (joking him for missing the empty net twice against Calgary) [Steel City Sports Fan]

And finally, something the world needs more of: line brawls [Puck Daddy]
