Faceoffs is a lost art of rec hockey. I see guys go into it with their hands in a shooting stance regularly, there doesn't seem to be a plan of attack and there is almost never a change in strategy if they lose. It's so bad on one team I play on that when they do win it back both of us on D are surprised and it goes out of the zone forcing a regroup.
