when positioning yourself in front of the net, widen your stance to make a triangle/tripod with your feet to make an upside down V and lean forward a bit on your stick and you should be able to absorb most of that crosscheck when it does come. Unless its a Pronger-like penalty worthy crosscheck.

Or watch Tomas Holmstrom from the Red Wings in a game

From 5 seconds on in this clip too, #96 - they even slow it down later in the video too, you can see him setting up in front of the opposing defenseman:
