The stats on nhl.com can go back all the way to 87-88. You just have to manually change the year in the url address bar (or whatever it's called).
For years before that, the only way I can think of is to find out how many ENG a team had scored against them, and then check their game summaries to find them, and therefore which teams scored against them. It's usually easy to find by first checking games where they lost by 2 or 3 goals.
Unfortunately for those years, there's always the chance that the official NHL statistics don't match the reported summaries. For example, I recently found out that the 85-86 Hartford Whalers are credited with 5 ENG scored against them, but by researching summaries and comparing them with newspaper articles it appears that there were actually 7.
