It's not that much different, really. I'm a lefty and I've had to play right D these past two years because I've been paired with lefties who didn't want to switch. When the puck comes up the boards and you know that you'll have time to make a play, just press your whole body on the boards. If you do it right, the puck should just kick right off of your skates and to a place where you can play it. It's got a couple of advantages as well. If you start leading the rush, your stick will be towards the middle meaning that you have a better angle for making passes or shooting. When you're defending, you'll naturally have your stick in the middle lane, making it harder for the other team to make cross-ice passes. Just hope that you're playing with someone who can make the right passes for you on the backend and you should be fine
