Any advice for the one defensive play I always flub?

Thanks for the advice guys. I've been trying to treat it like a 2-1 situation where I block the pass and let the goalie take the shot, but the puck always finds its way in the net.
Partly right. It is like a 2 on 1 but in either situation you don't block the pass. You cover the man so no pass happens. Don't block passes on an attacking 2 on 1 either. Chances are better of you missing it and creating a 2 on 0 than they are of you A) blocking the pass and B) controlling the block and turning back offensivly to your team. Forget the puck, cover your guy like a blanket and see if things change. You will be pleasantly surprised.
