I'm not that great, but one thing that really helped me was to stop over-handling the puck.
If you're moving the puck up the ice, you're generally skating fairly straight and you don't need to be tick-tacking the puck back & forth from your forehand to your backhand.
Just rest it on the forehand of your blade and skate up the ice. That'll allow you to skate straight ahead and even turn in the direction of your forehand. You don't need to take the puck on your BH until you turn in that direction..
