At the beginning of the game, or after a goal has been scored, the faceoff is at centre ice, where the two teams are facing each other. The centres take the face off , with their respective left and right wingers on their left and right, about 20 feet away. The defense men are standing about 20 feet to the rear, spread out a bit more. Face offs are also taken after a off side is called, after a penalty is called, or after an icing has occurred. Look at the ice surface and you will see the "face off " circles at either side near the goal net, and at the blue lines at either side of the centre ice area. Face off circles are painted read, while the face off DOT is blue, and that is where the puck is dropped, by the official. The players who are taking the faceoff have to have their sticks on the ice before the puck will be dropped, and the other players have to be OUTSIDE of the circle, when the puck is dropped. The player who takes the faceoff is trying to get the puck back to one of his mates, and then the play goes on. Pro hockey players spend a lot of time practicing their "face off skills". It is a stat that is kept to show who is good at it, game after game. The colors are generally as follows: Red for the centre line and circles in the offensive zones, as well as the other faceoff dots in the neutral zones and in the circles. Blue paint is used for the blue lines only. Faceoffs after a penalty is called or after the puck goes out of play usually occur from the spot of the foul, and the teams line up based on the ref's decision of the spot.
