It's more about chipping it off the glass with enough force to land in some open ice around the neutral zone.

Beyond that, it's up to one of the forwards to get the puck to make it a pass instead of a clearing attempt. As a winger, I don't like to get too far ahead of the play to pick up one of those chips, because a lot of better D-men (especially those with full face masks) will use anything they've got to knock the puck down (block it with helmet, jump and grab it, etc)
