Two very simple and effective tips:
1: When using your stick to block a shot make sure your blade is not angled towards your goalie. Even NHL playerrs do this from time to time. WIth your blade angled back toward the goalie potential low-shots will go top corner.
Angle your blade toward the shooter and if you get a piece the puck will most likely die.
2: This one is a little harder to explain, but I picked it up from Scott Stevens at a Devils practice.
A player is coming down on you one on one, your stick of course out in front of you in a poke check position...Keep your stick arm bent, elbow pinned behind your body. This will make the puck carrier believe he has more room than he actually does. When he tries to get closer, thrust the bent arm foward and extend it, you will easily poke hte puck off his stick.
