Questions about Time On Ice

This seems like the most logical place to ask, so I'm just gonna throw this out there. 

I'm trying to work with Vic's "close" script for the Ducks in 0910.  This is the URL I'm using:

http://timeonice.com/playershots0910close.php?team=ANA&first=20001&last=30000

It spits out a bunch of lovely data.  However, I'm not sure how to determine which player corresponds to which "player number".  A bunch of them match up just fine with the NHL's list of player numbers here, but some are definitely different (James Wisniewski, for instance, is listed on NHL.com as #20, even though I'm about 95% sure he had #34).  

Also, TOI lists some numbers that NHL doesn't at all; NHL.com doesn't believe the Anaheim Ducks iced a #13 last year, even though he apparently played 66 games and scored 3 goals for them (fwiw, hockeyreference is pretty sure #13 is Mike Brown, who actually played 75 games and scored 6 goals...).  [EDIT: This of course means Brown (or whoever #13 is) scored three goals in ES close situations, not as a whole.  FML.  I don't think this changes my questions, though.]     

So, Question #1: Does anyone know if there's a list hiding somewhere to make putting a name to a TOI "player number" easier?

Question #2: TOI lists a #17 as  having played 65 games for the Ducks.  I'm pretty sure this was two seperate players (Nokelainen prior to the deadline (50 games), Visnovsky thereafter (16)).  Is there any way to seperate their numbers?

Lastly, Question #3: A bunch of players appear to be missing one game (e.g. Perry only has data for 81 games, Getzlaf for 65, even though they played 82 and 66 respectively).  Is there a reason for that?

Thanks very much in advance.
