^Yup, you gotta make room for yourself. Instead of trying to do it yourself on the rush, pull up on the half boards and hit a teammate as he's barreling into the zone after you, or get it back to the point, or have a teammate rush down low and establish a cycle. Once the D are in, use the points to open up the ice. They'll draw defenders, so with some work around the outside you'll open up some nice passing and shooting lanes.

Just don't keep closing and try and force your way past the D. Unless you can accelerate to a good bit faster then you're going, you're not going to force your way around a guy. However, if you do enter the zone at half speed, holding the puck away from the D and hitting the jets can be a very effective move.
