as long as you maintain control from when your skates begin to enter until the puck has entered.

ex. if a player entering the zone skating backwards crosses the line with his feet then receives a pass on his stick in the neutral zone he must stop and tag the blue line with a skate. If he does not stop the whistle is blown as soon as the puck crosses.

ex. if Rick Nash gets checked on the play as his feet cross the line and the puck ends up bouncing off the boards and back to him in the offensive zone he cannot play it until he goes back and tags up or else it will be whistled off-side as soon as he makes an attempt to play it.
