I don't think PK slew-footed Neal. I think he's playing for the puck. It doesn't even seem as if PK's "kick" initiates the motion of Neal's foot. PK's foot is even travelling orthogonally to the direction of Neal's foot, too.

I'm trying to see this as objectively as possible: but the physics just don't add up. If PK really wanted to slew-foot Neal, it would have been 10 times better to kick in the direction that Neal's toe is pointing...not in the direction of the puck.
