It's a lot of zone coverage with the little shifty guys. Take away the middle of the ice and force them into passing plays. Always be on the defensive side of the puck in your end and as stated above. Make the player go through you to get their open space.
A simple way to harness your positioning (mainly for D) is take the shortcut to your own goal to avoid getting beaten wide. I.e. turn and skate directly towards the net (taking away the prime scoring areas)
