Publishing the same data or a close proximity is one thing. Using the data and drawing conclusions as if it were official NHL data is a different topic altogether.
Sadly there's not much one can do without having to do unreasonable amounts of legwork. NHL has been very poor at publishing official data, at least online.
Also, the quality of the official data is unknown. IIRC there have been threads here regarding clear errors in official numbers. Not to mention, of course, all the subjective errors done by game officials, such as wrong goal and assist credit, shot counts, ice time etc.
