No, the last person on the scoring team to touch the puck gets the goal. P.J. Axelsson was credited with a goal that bounced off his chest last week. Brad Boyes, the shooter, got the assist.
BTW, if a player puts the puck in his own goal the same rule applies -- last player from the opposing side to touch it gets the goal.
