coming up the boards

I've been having issues when I'm in this situation... I play left wing and shoot right.

So when the puck is in our D zone and one of my D men has the puck I can see that he is planning on throwing it up the boards to me / out of the zone and I think "Crap how do I handle this". Basicly it turns out to be a very awkard situation where I dont produce much of anything.

I'm wondering how I should react to this situation... Sometimes one of there forwards gets to the puck before it gets to me. Sometimes I face the oncoming puck and catch it, in which case I try to turn around and look for a pass/skate it out, and sometimes I try to skate with it so it catches up to me... atempting to breakout of the zone, but nothing ever seems to work that well..

any suggestions?
