If at all possible I try to go feet first, just so that as I'm sliding in I can use my skate blades to dig into the ice and try to slow myself down a bit.

If all else fails I'll just try and hit the boards in a position where I can do sort of a squat to absorb the impact, or let my shin guards take the blunt of it.

Even if you're sliding head first you should be able to use your ab/leg muscles to spin yourself around. Of course, you don't always have much time to think so I'd imagine that getting your forearms up would work too.
