    James Neal saw the puck roll to the corner and sprinted to dig it out. The sight of hockey's most intimidating player standing in his way hardly mattered.

    The Pittsburgh Penguins forward shoved Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara -- all 6-foot-9 of him -- in the back then nudged the puck to teammate Evgeni Malkin. The NHL's leading scorer fed Matt Niskanen at the point, and when Niskanen's slap shot hit the back of the net the league's hottest team was on its way to a 5-2 win.
