1 on 1 against a conservative D-man

Hey peeps. So I'd like to get some input from some of you who are more experienced than I am in hockey (or who ever would know, but i've been playing for just over 3 years).

So I often get in a situation where I'm entering the offensive zone against a D-man who is playing me ULTRA conservatively. Its probably because of the skill level in my league and them knowing its best to take my shooting lane away. Anyway, these guys will literally just stay in my way all the way to the crease. I'm a shorter guy (5'8") and many of the guys are taller and have a bigger stick (Pierre McGuire would love em ) and its harder to get around them, especially when they're not pinching or making a move on me what so ever.

So do I take a shot hoping he's screening the goalie? Try to move the puck through him and skate around (if I have time)? Wait for a supporting forward? Any experienced advice would be greatly appreciated!
