(Newser) – Martin Brodeur achieved a rare NHL feat last night, even if it was by accident. He got credited with a goal because he was the last New Jersey Devil to touch the puck when Carolina scored on itself, reports USA Today. It's only the 13th time in NHL history a goalie scored, but the third time Brodeur himself pulled it off. (One was another accident, but one was a genuine shot into an empty net, back in 1997.)
