When you're passing the puck to your defense partner behind the net, try to bounce it off the boards or don't use the boards at all( when you're both below the goal line ). Try not to ring it around along the boards.
Having to pop a fast moving puck off the boards can be difficult especially when you have a forechecker bearing down and you're receiving it on your backhand. Having to get it off the boards, in a position to pass eats up precious time. Receiving it already off the boards helps you begin moving even before the puck arrives and can help spring you free of an opposing player.
