Gauge the situation. If the D is a solid skater and you can't get past him with pure speed, consider the options available to you.
Is anyone trailing the play? If so, look to make a drop pass, stop or create space so you can hit your trailing teammate with a pass or make the D hesitate and shoot.
If no one on your team is trailing you, try to fire a shot between the defender's legs. I managed to sneak in a few goals like that because essentially the opposing D acts as a screen.
