don't know how it is now--but for years many stats were kept by the home team and it was well known that in Boston Sinden and the bruins owners made it clear to the guy counting shots that anything near the neat was considered a shot and whenever the goal touched the puck it was a shot on net. In the 80's in a game against the oilers, ITV who showed the game kept track of how "interesting" it was how games in the boston garden always had high shot count
