practice stickhandling, keep your head up, read what the defender is doing with this stick and feet, exploit that weakness.

for example, i'm coming in straight at the defender with speed with the defender doing single backward crossovers, left to right to gain speed.

i would keep my head up, read his skating pattern and timing. and when the timing is right, he would eventually crossover to the left, at the exact moment he is starting his crossover, cut towards the right, this will either make him complete the left side crossover and pivot or make him pivot during his crossover (which would be quite difficult), all you need is that split second to get by him, there is no need to put the puck through his skates.
