When getting set for the face-off, look at the ref's hand instead of staring down at the ice waiting for the puck to drop.
It might sound silly, but it took me a while to figure it out.
I was going to suggest the same thing. How most refs drop the puck, you don't even have to turn your head. If you react as soon as you see him drop the puck, your chances of winning the faceoff increases.
