If the man you take shoots and the other open guy taps in a rebound there's not much you can do about it, except remind your d-partner or C that he should have been on that guy. But really the key here is not to hesitate, you need to INSTANTLY pressure the man with the puck so he has no time to think/make a good play.

This is very well said. Hard work and constant pressure are a great equalizer.
