Sealing the wall at the blue line

I'm looking for some tips on how to be more effective keeping pucks in at the wall as a defenceman. The opposing forward / defenceman is trying to clear the puck and I'm trying to keep it in. It seems like lately I've been getting burned more often on pinching in and I'm thinking I need to make some adjustments.

One of the things I think I'm going to start doing is to start using my body more to seal off the wall and just block the pass coming up the boards. Usually my strategy is to pinch in stick first and hope that I can chip it forward.

Anybody have any dos and don'ts for this kind of play?
