    Hi everyone,

    The stats section of NHL.com has complete ice time data (ES, PP and SH) for every player in every playoff season going back to 1998. The problem is, if I were to copy it into Excel, I'd have to manually click through 160+ pages, and the formatting is a mess. Does anyone know if there's another, cleaner source for this data?

    The goal is to combine this with another source of data and be able to calculate the personal GAA for each player.

    No because I doubt the NHL intended for anyone else to use it.

    pnep to the rescue!

    It will take me time to process this much data, but it looks like this will be a huge help - thanks again.
