    There are five faceoff circles and four faceoff dots. I do believe Craig MacTavish was the last player to play without a helmet.

    Bumped with updated correct answers. Huggy is correct to say "dots", which I meant, instead of circles, which can be misleading. That's why Canadians are the hockey experts, not us faux Canadians from Erie County.

    And one day I'll stump Moddy with a music question. Just might have to change decades.
