Leader Board: Times a player's shot was blocked, 5-on-5

This is the first year that the NHL has listed whose shot was blocked in their feed. Alexander Ovechkin leads #2 Heatley by a huge margin - after Heatley, I removed a lot of defensemen who are more likely to have their shots blocked. At any rate, it's interesting to see a new stat, and to see yet another player have more than double the second-place guy in a counting stat...
