Instant Awesome: Penguins equipment manager surprises 6-year-old girl with Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup made stops at four different rinks around Pittsburgh on Saturday. But its visit to the home of 6-year-old Darran Dunlap was undoubtedly the most heartwarming.

Darran, the daughter of Pittsburgh 93.7 The Fan radio host Colin Dunlap, was diagnosed with leukemia in November. Penguins equipment manager Danny Kroll knows Colin from his days covering the Pirates for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and Kroll got in touch with Colin last week to let him know that the equipment manager might have the Cup for a short period of time Saturday -- and Colin should keep the family's schedule clear just in case.

Everything fell into place, much to the delight of Darran. Colin tweeted a video of his daughter greeting the Cup as it arrived at their home, along with photos of the family with hockey's most coveted trophy.

The smile on Darran's face says it all.
