Well, if it's you against 2 Dmen, there's a couple of ways to handle it. Depending on the game situation, it may warrant chipping it in and chasing or my favorite, splitting the D and hoping they hesitate on who does what. If that hesitation occurs, you are in clean on the most exciting rush in hockey, IMO.
1-1 you may want to make a move and see if the D goes to crossover and follow you. If he does crossover, go the other way. If you are fairly equal players, he will not be able to catch you at that point.
To execute either move you must be comfortable stickhandling w/o looking at the puck, too often at least.
Good luck and have fun!
