Allow yourself to fall, just make sure you're protected when you do. If you're practicing on ice your hockey gear should protect you from bruises. Avoid sprains by only bending knees and elbows the way they're supposed to. If you're practicing on concrete I'd recommend wearing knee and elbow pads, even helmet and gloves (protect your wrists) if you're overly cautious.

Just how weak is your right leg? If you can hop on your right leg this shouldn't be an issue -- it may just be a question of turning your leg so it better absorbs the weight transfer.
