Old thread but a few things to add
Practice things slowly to get it right. You will do it just as well in a game and faster
Keep your legs moving... Even at half speed
Take two or three more strides than you think you need or want
When you get the puck think that it is yours and you wont give up until you have looked around to make a play (which can include skating it)
Count players. This helps you learn to track what is going on as you play.
Play D to learn the game faster.
Practice skating the most
Ask questions of more experienced players as you sit on the bench
When in doubt shoot it low on net BUT shoot it.
And lastly... When you are feeling you're doing better find a higher level of play
