Edge case with `no-unused-expressions` rule

See original GitHub issue

What version of ESLint are you using? 3.0.1

What parser (default, Babel-ESLint, etc.) are you using? default

Please show your full configuration:

    "rules": {
        "no-unused-expressions": "error"

What did you do? Please include the actual source code causing the issue.

one = 1,
two = 2

What did you expect to happen? To not show the error

What actually happened? Please include the actual, raw output from ESLint. it shows the error for the first line

1:1  error  Expected an assignment or function call and instead saw an expression  no-unused-expressions

It looks like an edge case for not really good code (, but seems this is still an error
