Get as close to the shooter as you can when you block a shot. That way you have a better chance of actually blocking it and it will most likely hit you in the shin pads and not the neck. Laying down to block a shot in a rec league game is not smart as you have less vision and control when you're in the act of laying out and I've seen people get pretty jacked up doing it. My first rec league game I layed out and the shooter clearly had no shot but shot at me purposely anyways right in the cup and another guy I know layed out and he inadvertently rolled and took a shot to the back of the unprotected base of his skull. Get as close as possible, squeeze your shin pads shut, turn your hands into your body, and put your chin against your chest to protect your neck or get out of the way!
