On Thursday, Edmonton Oilers defenseman Mark Fraser scored his first NHL goal in over four years, and it also happened to be of some controversy.
Joensuu was trying to avoid contact, by jumping over Jackman, who fell trying to play the puck, however he clipped the Blues defenseman with his left leg. The goal counted, despite Jackman down on the ice for several seconds between the contact with Joensuu and when the puck went past Ryan Miller.
For Fraser, it was his first goal since March 2, 2010. It also tied the game at 2-2 heading into the third period.
