The spreadsheet that should appear below contains detailed EV data at the team level for games 1 to 692. As NHL.com has inexplicably failed to publish play-by-play data for the following games, they were not included:
Game 124 - WSH@CAR
Game 429 - ATL@NYI
Game 491 - PHX@PIT*
*The play-by-play feed for this game was initially available, but is no longer accessible. Consequently, I have EV and EV close data for this game, but no EV tied data.

A couple of points:
The document contains three worksheets. The first sheet shows even strength data for all situations. The second shows even strength data for when the score was close (i.e. whenever the score margin was 1 or 0 in the first two periods, or tied in the third period or overtime). The last sheet contains data for when the score was tied.
Empty net goals have been removed from the data.
The abbreviations are defined as follows:
GF: goals for
GA: goals against
SF: shots for, where shots = goals + saved shots
SA: shots against
SHOT%: shots for/(shots for + shots against)
SH%: shooting percentage
SV%: save percentage
PDO: shooting percentage + save percentage
FF: fenwick for, where fenwick = shots + missed shots
FA: fenwick against
F%: fenwick for/ (fenwick for + fenwick against)
CF: corsi for, where corsi = shots + missed shots + blocked shots
CA: corsi against
C%: corsi for/ (corsi for + corsi against)
ADJ: refers to the fact that an adjustment for schedule difficulty has been made. See here for the details of the adjustment process.
Finally, as mentioned earlier, I've included EV tied data in this go around. The reason for that is that it appears that score effects are still very much relevant when the score margin is 1 in the first two periods. For example, consider the table below which shows how teams trailing by one goal in the first two periods have performed with respect to shot percentage and PDO over the last three seasons.
In other words, teams trailing by one goal in the first two periods tend to play more aggressively, which increases their shot differential yet hurts their PDO. Additionally, there appear to be strategic differences between teams with respect to style of play when the score margin is one in the first two periods. That's a topic that I plan to explore in more detail in the upcoming weeks.
The result of all of this is that Fenwick or Corsi percentage with the score tied should be a better measure of a team's true ability to control the play at even strength, given that EV score close shot statistics tend to favor teams that play more from behind and/or play more aggressively, relative to the average team, when leading or trailing by one in the first two periods.
