as Jarick said, skating > stick-handling. Usually if I'm 1-on-1 with a defender, i will choose a side and try to beat him to it and simply skate around him. Sometimes I will fake going to one side, then quickly switch directions. This usually causes the defender to cross-over, giving you a break to blow past them. Placing the puck between the defender's legs can be effective, but if doing so, try to get the puck a little bit off the ice. It's much easier for the defender to simply turn his skate 90 degrees and block the puck then for him to try to block it with his leg in mid-air. But I would recommend trying to stay away from stick-handling moves and just use power-skating and acceleration
