In a perfect world we would have people from all thirty teams measuring scoring chances under very strict and thorough guidelines with timestamps. If we had that quality of data, I believe we could have the first "advanced" goalie stat on our hands.
Closest I can think of is shot trackers and counting only shots from "home plate", but it lacks shots that go wide, are blocked, or hit the post. Also, they tend to lack coordinates for some shots.

This site tracks shots and what player is on the ice. Not sure where he mines the data from, but it's out there somewhere:

TSN also has game by game shot/blocks/hits/penalty location trackers:

Not sure if either help your cause though.
