Dallas has lost the fourth most face-offs in the NHL. The face-off percentage rankings can be skewed a bit due to guys with good percentages while taking very few face-offs. I re-ranked the players in the NHL and only included guys that had taken at least 50 face-offs this season. Of the four main guys for Dallas (Roy, Benn, Eakin, Fiddler) only Fiddler ranks in the top-50 in the league. Fiddler ranks 46th in the league, Roy at 76, Benn at 83 and Eakin at 93. Dallas has won the face-off battle in four of the 12 games this season.
