I often find myself getting too upright after playing for a while, and I think that is mainly in conditioning.

As mentioned above, work on getting lower so you have more power in your legs and a lower center of gravity. Also work on getting angles on your defenders and keeping the puck closer/beside you instead of in front of you (i.e. coming down the wing)

Having good control on your edges helps too, so you have more confidence to put moves on people and angle people out without falling on your ass. Once you get more confident skating, you'll be able to focus more on being "strong on the puck" and not about your skating.
