A good 1v1 tip that was passed along to me while I was switching between forward and defense, is if you can keep your outside shoulder lined up with the offensive players inside shoulder and keep yourself between the goalie and the offensive player, it keeps you in a relatively decent defensive position.

Edit to add to control the gap between yourself and the offensive player no longer than a stick length.
