Stay high and make sure a third man doesn't get involved in the play. A lot of times those guys come "out of nowhere". For your team I'd ask the goalie if the D is screening the shots or what. I'll bet that's what's happening.

Defensive positioning has been horrid on every time I've played on or seen at the adult level. It's a simple concept that absolutely nobody understands or agrees upon. Half the guys are yelling from the bench to be aggressive and attack the puck carrier and the other half are yelling to stay in your position and cut off lanes. I typically play conservative and cover the man instead of the zone and it works well.
