Probably the easiest method is the boosting method. Admittedly I got this unexpectedly by playing a friend who is very bad at NHL games so just by knowing how to do faceoffs, I managed to get the achievement naturally.

But this can be boosted. Play an online versus game against a friend or someone on here willing to boost. Win the first faceoff and then do something to cause another faceoff. Go offsides, ice the puck, pull your goalie and let them score quick, whatever. Just have your friend let you fin five consecutive faceoffs and the achievement will pop.

An alternative method of you don't want to boost with someone online is to use a team like the Penguins, a team with two elite centers, and set up a Play Game against a low level QMJHL team and simply outplay their center with Crosby and Malkin, or whatever teams elite centers you pick. A warning with this though, you can easily rack up two or three wins and the AI will get cheap and tie you up. Be on your guard and prepared to bring your winger in really quickly to snag the puck on a tie up so you don't lose the faceoff.

Online Versus is easier because your friend can just not do anything on the faceoff and you win by default. But if you don't/can't do that method, the alternative offline method will work too, just beware of the cheesy AI tie ups after a couple of consecutive faceoff wins.

Happy hunting peeps.
