NHL Heat map

@StatsbyLopez posted a photo on Twitter from a recent presentation where I showed an NHL heat map. So I thought I'd give a quick explanation of said heat map.

First, here's the heat map:  it's for all 5-on-5 shots in the NHL: 


The size of each rectangle represents the number of shots taken at that location (bigger rectangle = more shots).  The color represents the percentage of shots that were goals (red = high percentage, blue = low percentage).
