Closes quarters defensive tactics

I am fairly new to playing hockey and I'm confused as to what to do with my stick as I get close to the opposing player on defense. I feel like I come within inches of the puck all the time but can't make those steals/interceptions... Do you guys keep your stick in close to your body to sucker them in and then go in for the kill when you see an opportunity or do you keep your stick out and sweep? Also, when you know they're about to pass in a certain direction do you hold the blade on the ice or keep it off the ice an inch or two so it's easier to stop the saucer pass??

Thanks!!

Matt
