Another option is to pull up on the play, letting the D continue deep while you stop and cut into the slot to take your shot, or make a pass, doing that usually gives you a good bit more room.
I'd like to add... If you're stuck going to the outside, the Gretzky turn. Turn towards the boards, everyone catches up, find the pass. Gretzky normally used the turn just inside the blueline but this works pretty much anywhere near the boards.
