Yeah if you're watching the NHL you see all 5 guys collapse down low and you may think you need to get into the scrum. But what you would be missing here is that the pro wingers have the speed to get back into position covering the point if the puck gets back there, not to mention the ability to block the shooting lane with their body.

At our level we don't have that kind of skating, and would be just asking for injury if we started trying to block shots. So as a winger keep it simple and focus on covering your dman and taking away the point shot. Also have to be receptive along the board to retrieve a puck from one of your dmen and get it out of the zone.
