I agree with skating at an angle if at all possible. Angle toward your backhand if you can so the pass has to come to your forehand side. I usually try and angle them off my skate as well but that takes some practice. If you truly get a pass from directly behind you, try and just let it come between your skates so you don't get contorted all around. You will lose sight of it for a second but your balance will be better. I like them on my backhand when I play it that way, but whichever feels better for you is fine. I am assuming that you are playing in a non-contact league? Otherwise ignore all that and just wait for it to go by and chase it. Playing D there was nothing better than a guy looking back for a pass. It was like a birthday present getting to hand him his head.
