I have tried this but usually what happens is the backchecking forward from the other team catches up first and then strips the puck from me or at least forces me to ring it around the boards. I do try this a couple times per game but rarely does it work.

Maybe it'd be better if I instead of looping towards the boards just stopped? Maybe if I'm more focused on backing off the defenseman than evading him...
Use you body to angle yourself to protect from back checkers. A dead stop could work too.

Not between the two D, across them. Make them change assignments on you.
