Julylights: July 23rd, Chris Neil Steamrolls Johnny Boychuk

Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July. 

There are players that have a knack for timely goals, unbelievable dangles, or big saves, and then there are players that crush their opponent at any time possible. The Ottawa Senators' Chris Neil falls into the latter category.

Neil has already made an apperance on "Julylights" once when using his shoulder and this time is no different.  (Video after the jump)

Hockey 101 kids, skate with your head up, because if you don't you will probably end up like Johnny Boychuk, flat on you back and concussed. The moment you can see Neil come into the frame it had the makings of a something big.

Neil almost used the Bruins' winger as a shield and sprung out at the last second before steamrolling Boychuk. In a league that has lost a lot of its physical play, thank you Chris Neil, for destroying people and not letting it fade out completely.
