You need to stay between your man and the puck/ball. You can not just watch the man, otherwise you will not know until the last minute, which is usually to late that the ball is being passed in front of the net. As far as what to do once you gain control, that all depends on the situation and hard to judge. If you want the safe play it is high off the glass out of the zone.
As far as the two goal lead with 10 min. left I think it is a bad idea to leave your d at the redline. You are not forcing them to make a play in their own zone. You give them time for an easy outlet pass and time to build up speed. If your D are not ready they are going to get burned or before they know it they will be trying to make a play while already on top of their goalie. Need to stay up at the blue line for the desperate team to make plays and the d need to step up at their own blueline.
Just My two cents, others may have different thoughts
