In the defensive zone, don't start skating out or past the hash marks until the breakout starts moving the puck up and out of the zone. Be there as support to give the defense options to pass to to be able to start the breakout.

The classic mistake is "Oh, the D-man has the puck!" and the forwards all skate to the neutral zone while it's still deep in your zone. Which is bad if the other team has a decent forecheck.
