You could practically hear Los Angeles on the edge of its seat for the last five minutes or so of last night's historic L.A. Kings' Stanley Cup win, as the clock wound down and the team moved the puck around, knowing the New Jersey Devils weren't about to bounce back from being five points behind. But after the game, at the requisite press conference, it was actually a 2-year-old little girl who had everyone captivated.

Her name is Madison Quick, and she's the daughter of Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP. Normally disruptions during a press conference aren't smiled upon, but little Miss Madison was quite the exception, as described by Yahoo! Sports, who noted that during the presser she "marched around with a Kings flag, took over the microphone at one point, caused some panic by choking on food and was generally the single most adorable thing we've seen in the NHL postseason."

Awww, right? See there's a softer side to the icy bloodsport of hockey!

If you need a shortcut to the video, you'll see Madison marching from about minute 2 to 3, choking at around 4:15 (aww poor babe!) and on her dad's lap chirping away at the beginning and towards the end. Check it all out here:
