Quick stat question

Tonight the Oilers defenseman Russell made a great save in the crease, where Talbot was way out of position. My question is, does that get counted as a shot block or an actual shot on goal? I'm guessing it must be a shot block, thinking that only pucks that go in or hit the goalie probably count as shots, but I'd like to know for sure. Kind of a dumb question considering the quality of the other topics in this forum, I know, but thanks for any answers anyway!

A "shot on goal" is defined as a shot on net that would have gone into the net were it not for the efforts of the goaltender.

So I believe that your situation would be a shot blocked.

Is a clear miss, still gloved by the goaltender (for the sake of line change, for example), considered a SOG?

If it's going wide, then it's not a shot on goal.

Of course, that's a judgment call which leads to gray areas. We know that some arenas have more shots/game than others, and this is likely one factor.

Which leads to the corollary - if you have two goaltenders, each allowing two goals on 25 (true) shots, but the second goaltender's scorekeeper calls three "wide" shots as shots on goal, who will have the higher save percentage?

Cue Mike Farkas.

Has anyone tried to chart these "adjustment" coefficients per arena?
