James Neal found the math amusing.

If he sustains the pace he has had through the first 15 games, the Penguins winger will finish the season with 350 shots.

"Three hundred and fifty?" Neal said, then called around to a couple of teammates to share the number and a chuckle.

What's the NHL record, a couple of them wondered?

That would be 550 set by Boston's Phil Esposito in 1970-71. More recently, Washington's Alex Ovechkin has led the league in each of his six seasons, with a high of 528 in 2008-09.
