Could be your ankle but it could be any combination of muscles on your left side being weaker than on your right. I've found that the stronger your muscles, the better your coordination. Definitely keep practicing on that side, make sure you're not leaning too far into the stop and that your front (left) skate isn't digging too deeply into the ice.
