(Newser) – One man's penalty box is another man's photo shoot. The AP reports Steve Ott and Dylan Larkin of the Detroit Red Wings used their ref-mandated timeouts during Sunday's preseason game against the Chicago Blackhawks to surreptitiously pose for a photo with a 4-year-old fan. The Red Wings posted the photo to Instagram, saying little Lylah Almas was "hit with the classic Ott, Larkin penalty box photobomb." Lylah's mom says she didn't even realize the players were smiling in the background until later. CBS Sports points out the smiles were a rare sight for the penalty box, where players are usually a bit crankier to find themselves. (Read more Detroit Red Wings stories.)
