Evgeni Nabokov has had his share of problems in goal for the New York Islanders this postseason, and it's probably not going to help when his own defensemen are putting the puck in the net behind him.

That's what appeared to happen in the first period of Saturday's Game 6 when defenseman Brian Strait attempted to clear a puck out of the crease and ended up sliding it under Nabokov's pads and into the net.

And here's another angle.

That came after Strait was beaten into the defensive zone by Sidney Crosby as he fired an initial shot on Nabokov.

The goal at this point is credited to Jarome Iginla, but Strait appears to be the one who put it into the net.
