I'm sure what I'm about to say is going to be debated. But I can think of three reasons, off the top of my head, why you're not catching that pass.
1. Inexperience-just practice giving and receiving passes on your backhand and it'll come together eventually.
2. The lie of your stick is incorrect and is making it nearly impossible for you to receive the pass. i.e. when your stick is down the tip of the blade is coming off the ice, while the heel is on the ice making your stick look like a V instead of an L.
3. As long as your stick is on the ice, it's not your fault you're not receiving that pass. The responsibility of you being able to receive a pass is from the sender (defenseman), who is thus giving you bad passes.
