I was playing my first game back at defense last night. The other team was trying a lot of stretch passes across the ice, so I had to chase a lot of pucks into the corner behind me with a forechecker right on my tail.
The question is, what angle should I take on the puck and how should I play it in that situation? I was caught between going to the boards and getting cut off trying to go behind the net on the backhand, and I didn't want to stay too far to the middle of the ice and sell that I was going up the boards and get cut off there...subsequently I was kind of caught in between and usually got pinned.
