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?
I have heard that it does. I forget how much though.
