You shouldn't pressure the man with the puck until the only option he has is to shoot. Generally, let the goalie play the shot. Really you want to slow down the play until help (back-checker) arrives, then you want to communicate with the back-checker as to who will take whom.

The safest thing to do is to communicate with your goalie before the game and afterwards, as well as during the play to find out how he prefers you to play the 2 on 1.
