Spatial Analysis of shots on goal

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone has a way to retrieve the x, y coordinates that are shown for shots on goal over the course of a game.

I'm from a GIS background, and I did a project on this 8 years ago in a statistical spatial analysis course in university. Back then I ripped it game by game from the source code on the NBC website and plugged it into R. Looking back on my project, it's a bunch of ineligible gibberish (probably exams week). I'd like to look back into this. Advanced stats have come a long way since then, but I haven't seen much in terms of spatial analysis. I know for a fact that they track shots on goal in x, y coordinates.

There is this, but it's not per game. It's by situation and player (maybe exactly your end goal?)

Looks neat, thanks.

I was hoping for the raw data, to do some more advanced analysis. I feel like this might be difficult to acquire.

You can download the full Play-By-Play by season from Corsica or scrape it yourself from the NHL API.
