Home Faceoff Percentage
I was thinking about researching this and decided it might be best to check and see if anyone else already has.
Faceoffs are one of the very few quantifiable aspects of home-ice advantage. In theory, all players should be better at taking faceoffs in home games since the rules disadvantage the visiting centermen. Does this theoretical advantage translate to a real difference in the numbers? If so, how much of an advantage is it?
