Your front skate should be almost straight up and down, with just a slight angle. That way your inside blade can scrape across the surface of the ice, slowing you down without digging in and throwing you forward.

EDIT:

I just upgraded from a $200 pair (Easton SE 10s) to a $350 pair (Easton EQ40s). Bought 'em and baked 'em tonight, and I'll play on them Friday. Can't wait!
While it may be the end result, I don't think anyone stops like that...

Not to be a buzzkill either, but the EQ40 isn't that much of an upgrade over the SE10s, but enjoy nonetheless! Always fun using new gear.
