Corsi/Fenwick close are (someone correct me if I'm wrong) a team's shot differential per 60 min when the score in a game is either tied or off by a single goal. This is important as it can limit the score effects (when a team is up by a substantial number of goals, it tends to go on the defensive, and if down by a number of goals it will become more offensive, which skews the "real" outshooting ability of the teams involved).

A Fenwick close of 46.64 would mean that Anaheim is outshooting its competition by 46.64 shots/60 min when the score is close. That seems absurdly high to me, though. Like, it should be in the single digits.

edit: Just to clarify on Corsi/Fenwick, both include shots and misses in their differential, while Corsi also includes blocked shots.
