Because they mirror and skate alongside the guy they are defending without making contact unless they can make a play or get support from a teammate. It's not a penalty unless they make contact, or react late.
Teams that beat them just get physical with them and drive towards the net instead of moving alongside them, otherwise the wings get a lot of takeaways by forcing teams towards sticks and bodies.
