You've got the idea.
If there's no lane, fake a shot, try to get someone to committ and then move around then; in other words, learn to create opportunities.
Communicate with your teammates.
If the other d-man has the puck (assuming he's at the point) skate hard towards the net, this should collapse the square/diamond, and create an opportunity for a pass/shot which could be deflected. Make sure you communicate with your teammates so someone picks up your point/responsibilites.
I've always viewed the PP quarterback as someone with great hockey sense who can see ice and can see where to make opportunities.
