I looked at the situational save percentage numbers for the five teams that were closest in shots against per 60 minutes to the New Jersey Devils and the Florida Panthers from 2003-04 to 2008-09. New Jersey and Florida are two teams that are often brought up when various theories are advanced about whether the number of shots per game a goalie faces has an effect on their save percentage. I also reran the numbers using a few possible shot bias/goalie shot effect adjustments (adding one shot and two shots to New Jersey's totals and subtracting one from Florida's).
The result? There doesn't seem to be any significant effects from different levels of shots. If either of the teams are outliers then they also stand out against teams with similar shot prevention.
