The Journal de Montreal offers glimpses at this metric in their next day reports for the past few seasons.
Also interested readers can get glimpses of the metric by looking at the shoot-out data for shooters and goalies available via the stat package at NHL.com .
Oh I don't doubt that teams have access to their own information regarding this, however, like you said, they keep it. None of us have a backup goalie with a clipboard at our disposal. So we're left to guess. Or worse, just take the stats at face value.
