One reason why the NHL playoffs are better than the regular season: the fighting all but disappears.
Oh, you'll see a brawl every so often in the postseason, but the bloody fisticuffs are a rarity. However, that doesn't mean there aren't dustups during a stop in play.
That's what happened during Wednesday's night's Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals between Las Vegas and Winnipeg.
That's when Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury did something naughty. Fleury was behind the Jets' Blake Wheeler and reached a hand out and ... tickled Wheeler's ear.
"I was just sitting there and people, they were fighting," Fleury told the Associated Press, "and (I was) trying to have a little smile by myself. That was it."
Take a look:
The Knights won the game 4-2 and took a 2-1 series lead.
