Probably about as rare as a 3 on 5 shorthanded goal-pure speculation though.
Or perhaps (on a PK with a D in the box)
Defenceman gains control of the puck and passes it to defence partner
Defence partner clears the puck to centre ice
Penalty expires, the penalized defenceman jumps onto the ice, grabs the puck, skates in on a breakaway, and scores.
Claude Julien also experimented with having 3 defencemen on the ice during a Bruins PP in the finals, Boychuk and Kaberle (IIRC) on the points, and Chara screening Luongo.
