Moving your blade will help, though it should not be a concious move. You need to practice a little bit, and you do, so you're on the right path. When I switched to lower flex I was tought to grip with my top hand really hard, but kinda let my bottom hand be loose on the stick. This will give you a "natural" give, because you can't stop a hard pass with your upper hand, but the loose bottom hand will help absorb most of the energy and finally stop the puck gently.
I hope I explained it clearly. Give it a try next time.
