left bumper and hold right stick left or right to choose a hand, then when ref moves his arm swipe up or down.

Don't hold left bumper... that literally does nothing except if you want to do a "deke faceoff".

The trick is to go forehand and roll back when the puck drops. If you're up against a bigger guy, go back hand and roll up on the stick to lift and push him forward.

Are you just pressing down or setting up properly by holding left or right first?
If youre trying to win by just pressing down you deserve to lose all your faceoffs.

1. Press the left thumbstick to the left or right to take a stance

2. When the ref's arm drops, press down on the right thumbstick (if your perspective is up) or up (if your perspective is down). Basically, whichever direction your team is.

So when the refs arm drops, do you let go of the left stick at the same time as you are pressing the right stick? or keep it left or right and then press the right stick?
