LAS VEGAS - Marc-Andre Fleury gave Blake Wheeler quite an earful.

During a scrum behind Vegas' net with 2:34 left in the second period of the Golden Knights' 4-2 victory over Winnipeg on Wednesday night, Fleury reached over with his left hand and tickled the left ear of the Jets' unsuspecting Blake Wheeler .

"I did that?" said a playful Fleury, who also made 33 saves in the win. "There's cameras everywhere."

There sure are — and video of the ear tickle quickly became a big hit on social media.

"I was just sitting there and people, they were fighting," Fleury said, "and (I was) trying to have a little smile by myself. That was it."

The Jets forward, who was draped over the back of the net, didn't even turn to look behind him to see who was responsible for the tickle as he continued yapping at Vegas players while getting himself back onto his skates.

Oh, and Wheeler might want to keep his ears clear of Fleury's frolicking fingers.
