If there's another forward breaking out in front of you, get to the puck first and pass it to him, sauce or off the boards.
If there's no options, chip it off the boards if there's a defender pinching and skating towards you.
If you're trying to breakout of the zone with the puck, skate in a direction where you can pick up the puck without having to stop.
These are the three options I go to depending on the situation.
