breakaway problem

OK, I would consider myself the one of the faster guys on my team (being in my twenties while everyone else is 40+ has its advantages). It seems every other game I get a partial breakaway up the middle of the ice. Crossing the blueline into the offensive zone I have to partially slow down to settle the puck and get a shot off. By that time the dman is right on me and is able to tie my stick up before I can even get a shot. Im 0 for 5 on my chances and its pretty frustrating because I thought for sure I had more time than I did. Im a right handed shot coming up the middle, everytime i pull the puck back for a shot the D manage to wrap his stick around mine. Even when I ty to keep the puck out in front of me the manage to catch up to me when I try to settle for a shot. Any tips to help me?
