Unless you just scored the game-winner to send your team to the Stanley Cup Final, then go ahead and tussle away.

Ryan Reaves did both, scoring a second-period goal to give the Vegas Golden Knights a shot at the Cup in their first year of existence, then mussed TV reporter Scott Oake's hair during a second intermission interview. All in a day's work, really.

Reaves, who grew up with Oake's son Darcy (who is now a popular illusionist) in Winnipeg, playfully messed with the reporter about his son's Jets allegiance. Reaves also joked about his own family and friends showing up to games in Jets gear.

It is just Reaves' latest bit with Oake. Most famously, Reaves wore a one-of-a-kind Phil Kessel-themed T-shirt as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins during the "After Hours" segment with Oake in Vancouver on Nov. 4.
