when collecting possession of the puck, fin into the space you can see ahead of you (if possible). Always look to gain ground and always look to where your team mates are - ahead, to the side, even behind you. This way you (as a team) make ground, or at least always keep possession of the puck..... new players remember the obvious that you only have a 'period of time' on the bottom, due to the old 'need to breath' thing.

.....So time your decent to arrive in time to collect from team mate. Go full-on if have space in front. Watch all the time where your team mates are dropping into play so you can pass.
Get to know who is where around you. Get to know what part of the team shape you make up (if you are left forward, you will have a right forward to your right and mids behind you - assume they are or will be in that shape. If they are not, then first check you are in your own postion of left forward relative to play on the puck - if you are not............ then get there Wink
