I agree, your 1st responsibility as a forward should be the the trailing 3rd attacker on their team, but if he is far back enough (behind the centerline..) and you feel that you can steal the puck from the forward by adding pressure than it's just a matter of what angle you choose to cut him off.
As a winger, I always look back to see where their 3rd is and where the defensman are to cutoff a pinch. Even being the first forward back.
