I would avoid the slashes, but cross-checks will go uncalled unless the guy takes a dive. A nice little trick is to find the seam point between the shoulder pads and the pants at the back, jam your stick in there like a crosscheck, then push into the spine and down. It hurts like hell and will usually help you get a bigger guy out of the way. Sticking your blade in the back of a guy's knee and pushing slightly will usually throw him off too, since he'll be in a hockey stance and his knees won't be locked.
That would earn you a punch in the face in the leagues I play in.
